By Nick Engler
Pages: 49-56

There are dozens of table saw accessories you can mount on your machine to make it safer, more accurate or extend its capacity. Some can be purchased, others can be made by you. By carefully choosing these options, you can soup up your old table saw or customize a new one.

The most common additions are a reliable rip fence, a cut-off system (either an improved miter gauge, miter sled or sliding table) and roller stands or outfeed supports. But there are lots of other accessories, many very affordable, that I’ll share with you in this chapter. You can pick and choose what will work best for you on your table saw.
