    OR,

    Nice find. You're a regular search engine!

    I've been keeping an eye out for this since Jake mentioned it earlier this month. I still can not find it listed on the Ridgid web site. http://www.ridgid.com/index3.html I've looked under new products, hot items, woodworking accessories, etc.

    Jake,

    Do you know what the MSRP will be on this item and when it will hit the stores, if not already there. I've just not seen it in any of the local HD's or will this be an online item?

    I was about to pick up another roller stand when Jake posted a heads up on several new itmes including this one. I still think I could use one on my bass boat!

          Thanks Jake,

          I've been going in through Ridgid.com and not Ridgidwoodworking.com. Getting to the new "woodowrking" products is a little more straight forward going through the latter.

          Since this will be at HD I assume it will not be available thru the online store.

          Thanks again,

                Now I get it!!! When Jake posted this new product earlier, I have to admit, I wasn't entirely clear on what the heck it was for. Now I see and I'm glad I haven't bought that roller support I've been eyeing.

                Question: I have a workbench that I use as an outfeed table, but it is about 1/4" too high so I have to do some magic to make it work. Could this flip-top stand flip to the height of the workbench rather than the height of the table saw? Does that make sense?

                  Green Wood,
                  Have you tried raising the leveling feet of you saw? I built my workbench to be the same height as the TS top so I could use it as an outfeed table. A little tweeking was required as no garage floor is perfectly level. Just make sure that if you are using a Herc-u-Lift that you have enough clearance from the floor when the lift in engaged.

                  At 30 bones, I'll be picking up a couple of the the new outfeed supports.

                      Though not immediately, it should be available online eventually.
