Tips & Tricks: Easy Outfeed Support

Comments (0)
This article is from Issue 106 of Woodcraft Magazine.

I developed this simple outfeed extension for my band saw to provide extra support while resawing. The fixture consists of a 1/2" MDF panel screwed to two dressed hardwood side supports that clamp to the saw’s table. A hardwood crossbar provides added support and helps to keep the panel flat. Unlike outfeed rollers, my system automatically aligns with the table, reducing setup time. And having the workpiece glide over the flat surface means I don’t have to worry about a roller leading it astray. —Dwayne Smyth, West Springfield, Massachusetts
