I decided to go ahead and re-drill my table saw router extension table to fit the DW618 screw holes. It went a lot smoother than I expected. After looking at several router tables I feel in love with the Incra. So now I have to save all my extra pennies and convince my wife how much I need it once the pennies are save. Enough about that for now this is about mounting the fixed base to the table
I took the extra sub-base and centered it in the existing hole on the extension and marked the holes. The took a punch and made a place for the bit to start. I drill the through hole first then went back with a larger bit and counter sunk it. Then it was a simple matter of getting some longer screws and fixing it in place. After I had everything centered and tight I went back, one screw at a time and ground off the top of the screw so it was under the table top surface. I also put a little removable thread lock on the screws since This will be here until I either get a router table or upgrade my table saw. I don’t want to worry about it coming loose while I am using it. With one flip lock and then pressing two buttons the motor drops out and I can easily change the bits. One last thing I really like so far about this router is that you push the motor all the way into the base and it locks to the adjustment screw. Then you use the screw to adjust your height. No more trying to hold the motor at exactly the right place and tighten the lock clamp.
I have only made a couple of test cuts with it so far, but I am very happy with it.
Now for some pictures
