This is a router table extension that I added to the Right side of my Ridgid TS3650. It is supported under the cast iron wing, and does not hang on the rails. The top is 1-1/4” Melamine with a Woodpeckers Phenolic plate and a Rockler fence. I keep a Milwaukee 5615 router installed, soon to be upgraded to 5616.
Pictures have been added.
You can see in Pictures 2 and 3 how I attached under the extension wing. I mortised in an aluminum plate that attaches to the bolt that holds the front and rear fences.
In picture 4 you will see a red arrow. it is pointing to one of tee nuts that are used to bolt to the end of the wing. There are 3 nuts holding 3 bolts through holes I drilled in the end of the wing.
This worked out very well, it did add some weight to the wing, but that weight is spread out over that whole side of the saw without placing all of the weight on the end of the rails (I was concerned about them sagging over time).
I plan to eventually build a cabinet under this side for storage and dust collection and extra support.
Pictures 5 is the Rockler fence and T-track.
Picture 6 is the Woodpeckers Phenolic plate.
