Adding Rip Capacity To Your Table Saw

Carpenter sawing wooden planksEver look at your table saw and realize that it is not up to par with what you want it to be? Many can’t afford a cabinet saw or even a contractor saw. (Or even the inbetween hybrid saw like I have). And on a bench saw or portable saw you usually will only have a 12 inch capacity.

Now I did have a bench saw that had a pull out extension, but it was about 400 dollars once the taxes were added. So they still aren’t near as low priced as a bench saw can be. But don’t fret. You can add to the smaller table saws/bench saws in order to expand the ripping width.

In the 2 videos below, the woodworker shows how he goes from a 12 inch ripping width to a 40 inch. Great project, and can be altered to almost any saw.
