AW Extra 10/18/12 - Ribbed Saw Table Fillers

Ribbed Saw Table Fillers

I like my contractor’s saw just fine, except for the ribbed extension tables. The openings can be a real finger pincher when sliding the rip fence across them. After my last bruised fingernail I decided to do something about it. I custom fit some 1/4-in.-thick plywood and attached it to the ribs with construction adhesive. You may have more or less space on your tablesaw than I do, but a little shimming or sanding should give you the fit you need.
