  • Outfeed table for TS-2424

    Here is a folding outfeed table that I just added to my TS-2424. I had previously added a Biesemeyer fence and a solid wing from Grizzly. The table sits on the rear rail for the Bies and is held in place with a couple of toggle clamps. The lower support is bolted to the legs. The first 13" is fixed to clear the motor, and the last 30" folds down on hinges with folding legs. I have not had alot of time to use the saw with the new setup but so far I really like it alot.

    That is a great looking set up. I have the same saw, what is the part number for the solid wing from Grizzly? I hate the web wings

      It is the cast iron wing for the Grizzly G0576 table saw. The part # is P0576009. I tink it was about $80.00 with shipping. One thing to be aware of is that the wing has three mounting holes, and the saw has four. I drilled the wing to match the saw, that way if I messed up, it was the wing and not the saw that was damaged. It is actually pretty easy to drill. I think this is one of my favorite upgrades (that and the Biesemeyer fence)

        John, a less expensive way to convert to a solid top would be to do what I did. I took some ΒΌ" Birch plywood and cut it to width and length to match the dimensions of the web openings on my 3612. When you cut the pieces, err on the side of them fitting tight. The first set I made was too loose and they kept popping out. With a little sanding, they snap right into the openings. Finish them off with the stain of your choice and a few coats of Johnsons Paste Wax. The nice thing is if you ever need the openings to clamp a work piece or anything else, the inserts just pop out and you're good to go.

          Did you have any clearance problems with the motor when your tilt the blade to 45 deg.?

          I have looked at this on my 3650 and the end of the motor housing when the blade is tilted to 45 is just below the table top by about 3/16".

          I was thinking about how to gain some additional clearence and thought if the arbor pulley (not the motor pulley) was flipped so the set screw was on the inboard side that would shift the belt over about 3/4", then the motor would need to be shifted in the mount using the existing slots to re-align with the new arbor pulley postion. This should put the motor housing an additional 3/8 to 1/2" to the right (when viewed from the rear) making it roughly 5/8 to 3/4" below the table top when tilted to 45. I haven't tried this yet to see what the actual results would be yet. Anyone else tried this?

            Bob,

            I have not tried it. To be honest, I never even thought about it. I will have to try it and let everyone know. I am not sure how big an issue that is to me though, I think I have tilted it to 45 maybe once in the 3 years that I have had it. If it ever is a problem, I can disconnect it in about 10 seconds to make the cut and then put it back on. That is the advantage of the toggle clamps.

              Dave,

              This would be much more difficult with the 2424. These wings are full web, and not just the small section in the middle of the winglike on hte 3650. The other adavntage to the Grizzly wing is that it does NOT have the beveled front edge since the saw does not either.
