2 MFT(s) in a small shop.
« on: July 27, 2020, 07:28 PM »
1 MFT has been a game changer for me in my one car garage shop.  Due to space limitations, long crosscuts are normally a PITA on the table saw and require moving it about. 

But now I’m wondering how others handle supporting crosscuts on 96’ sheet goods.  I can think of other reasons having more surface would be useful.  What do you all do?

I also only have 1 mft in my single car garage. For large cuts, I attach my mw1000 extension table and ug cart extensions to my mft. It works ok at supporting full sheets of plywood.

In my next shop I might buy a second mft.

When I moved out of the area and to my new shop. I took some framing material and banged out a saw horse the same height as the mft. Works great. So my suggestion would be maybe build a folding type saw horse so you can used it and storage it easier when not needed it.
Have you walked your saw today?
