    • Re: 3650 Outfeed Table

      I'm still waiting on some parts to complete my blade guard assembling. I'm almost done with the table but I do not know how big to make the cut out for the blade guard assembling. Does anyone remember how big they made the cut out for it?

      Thanks,

        I seldom pay much attention to the number of views a thread has had but I just noticed that this one has over 92,500 views so far. Bob, you should be very proud that your project was so excellently crafted that so many people have shown an interest. I wish there was some way of knowing just how many of Bob's Outfeed Table have been built. Hundreds I'll bet and maybe even thousands!
        I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

          Yeah, how about that. I have received no where near the royalties I was promised.
          Knowing that so many people have benefited from me sharing my design is reward enough.
          I don't know but this may be the most viewed thread on the forum.
          I know my TS-3650 Assembly Tips thread is up near the top too.

          Seriously, I am honored that so many people have built their own version of my outfeed table.
          That this thread has been viewed and is linked to from so many other forums is amazing.
          There is more in the thread than just my table, many people posted on their own versions and
          how they overcame particulars of adapting the table to work with their saw.

          A while back I submitted an idea for a dust collector for use with my lunchbox planer, jointer, and TS to ShopNotes.
          It's been a long time and I have not heard anything back. I'll look and see if I still have the photos and description
          and post that here too. This chip box fits into the stand of my DW-735 planer. It can be used stand alone or connected
          to a dust collector system so you can use it in the shop or go "on the road" with it. And it also has provision for connecting
          other tools so it can serve as a central collection point when connected to a large single or dual stage dust collector.
          I've been using it for over 6 years now without problem. The design needs refinement as the one I built was something
          I slammed together to solve a problem while in the middle of a project. I modified the chip hose setup from the planer
          once about 3 years ago but never improved the design further. Anyway, I'll see if I still have the pics and post them
          if there is interest.

            Editing a comment
            Reviewing this thread I see I never updated it concerning my idea that I submitted to ShopNotes. I did eventually hear back from them. They called me and I explained my idea further to them. They said they didn't think it would work but I told them I had been using it for years (that was in 2013) and I am still using it. In fact I recently had to take my DW735 'on the road' so to speak as in its normal spot in the shop I can not plane anything longer than 7 feet. I had a couple 106" boards that I needed to plane so I disconnected it from the dust collector and disconnected the two hoses for the jointer and the Table Saw and wheeled it out to the middle of the shop. In this position I could not easily reconnect to the dust collector so I just used it with the chip box and its built-in filter vents. Worked like a charm to plane those two boards. When I was done I just put it back in its normal spot and reconnected everything then turned the dust collector on and sucked all the chips out. Piece of cake. Maybe I'll try submitting it to another WWing mag and see if they like it.

          Thanks,
          It's pretty simple to figure out on your own. Just take some measurements of the blade guard where it rises up at the back edge of the table saw, tilt the blade full over and back to 90 and see how much room you need for your saw. Cut yourself a couple L shaped pieces of cardboard and set them up to box in the blade guard and slide them around to get the clearance you need.

          Also in this post from earlier in this thread I answer some questions about this very topic.

          • Bob,

            I didn't see this during my cursory scan of this thread, but why attach the square stock to the flat stock instead of directly to the cabinet?

            Comment


            • I was originally going to do just as you suggest but I believe I went this way because the square tube would interfere with the blade bevel handwheel on the right. But it's been many years since I built this and I don't recall for sure.

              I know some of those who used my design as inspiration to build their own did attach to the cabinet. Either way works, use what you like and have the material on hand to support.

              Also see my earlier post #27 in this thread.
