Here is the router table insert I created for my Ridgid r4511 table saw. I laminated 2” thick pieces of scrap cherry together and flattened it with hand planes. The problem was attaching it to the saw, as the top is granite there was no way to attach it directly to the top.
Picture 3 shows the angled steel that was bolted to the front rail and then to the bottom of the router table. Picture 4 is the back rail where I drilled 2 holes and used 2½” lags to attach it there. Overall it is stable and does not have any flex even when I push fairly hard.
The lat picture is the cherry I added to the fence, which was sanded to 600 grit and then waxed. It is very slick. Next I need to make some 0 clearance inserts.
