Elgin Shop – Breaking it down – Plywood break down station

I needed a better way to break down sheet goods. Something I could put and manage sheet goods on alone. I decided to use the Shop Notes 48 tilt out panel cutting guide. Simple and cost effective.
First I cut everything to size and made a couple test dado cuts to make sure everything will fit:

Then fit it all together. I used the clamps to help guide things into place:

Screws all the way around. I added a screw in the center of each joint to help keep things snug. The screws are on the back I dont want to hit one with mysaw blade on accident.
Next was making the cutting the Red Oak to support the T-track. I could not find any 2″ x 2″ so I glued 1″ x 4″ together. After they dried I cut cut them to get the stock I needed.
Then ran a 3/4″ wide 1/2″ deep dado to hold the T-Track and mounted them to the sides of my frame.
Set it up on the outfeed table to help me get to things a little easier. Mounted up the bottom sheet supports.
Mounted the wall support board using 3 1/2″ lag bolts, added the second row of sheet supports and mounted it to the wall.
I mounted 12″ Red Oak legs to push the bottom away from the wall and create an angle that will help the sheet good stay in place.
Last shot. With the track installed and vertical fence attached:
My version of this will never sit flush against the wall. I plan to build a lumber storage roll around that will park itself in front of the plywood cutting station.

Elgin Shop – Table Saw and Out Feed – Follow-up

Finally got around to adding some much needed finishing touches to my out feed table. First up, miter slots. Pretty straight forward; lined it up, marked it up, and routed it up.
I also routed out a lip so I could get it over the metal support bar on the back of the table saw and bring the whole out feed table flush with the saw and side table. I noticed that the out feed table legs are rubbing the rear ‘L’ bracket and wont let me bring it flush. You can see the black marks on the legs
To fix it, I cut the offending piece away:
Then I finished the switch for the router table and added a 4 inch dust collector port.
The dust collector port is a 2 to 4 inch adapter. The table saw only has a 2 inch port. The adapter on the saw is a quick disconnect so I can quickly remove if I need to move things around:
Here is a complete shot:
