I hope to be able to use my Incra Miter Gauge to cut some pieces for an upcoming project that will require 20 inch cross cuts. Currently, the max I can cut safely crosscut is about 12 inches.
I browsed the internet for ideas, then commenced to draw my version of the extension.
The attached drawings show my saw table top (27 x 48), the 3 inch x 3 inch angle iron with the 3 inch x 1 3/4 inch steel tube attached. The fence slides on the steel tube.
The new extension table will be about 24 inches wide x 11 - 12 inches deep. I will attach it by using at least one Rockler Universal Fence Clamp (Item #31373)
, and maybe a second one. I will have to figure that out later.
I don't want to, but if I have to, I can position a roller stand to support the extension.
The main part of the table will be about 1 inch thick. That should be easy to make since I have some 1/2 inch Baltic birch. The two support pieces will be attached with screws. I have a piece of Formica that just might be wide enough to cover the top.
My main concern is to make the extension easy to attach and remove.
Your thoughts and ideas appreciated.
