I saw some unused office chairs about to be thrown out at work, so I had an idea what I could make with them. I asked and was given permission to take them.
I've always wanted an out-feed support for my table saw so this is what I came up with.
I found this an easy tool to make and it saved some stuff from the landfill.
A good use of re-purposing something.
The commercially available out-feed table is the second picture it's the one with the steel roller balls.
Step 1: Supplies and Tools Needed
Screw drivers to fit the fastening screws,
Four 1.5 inch 1/4" bolts, nuts, washers and lock washers,
Sockets for bolts
Step 2: Disassembling the Office Chairs
Step 3: Assembly
Since the chairs I had were identical the holes lined up.
The seat plates on my chairs had a bit of an angle to them, so I reversed one of them so both pieces would be straight when bolted together. (although slightly offset)
Step 4: Using the Out-feed Table
To raise the height just use the original chair height adjusting levers. To lower it you will have to move one of the levers and press down on it, to lower it.
Step 5: Adjustment Range
Step 6: The Out-feed Table in Use
In case you are wondering what my table saw is mounted on, it's an old manual type writer stand I found at a Goodwill store years ago. My saw fit perfectly on it.
