Phase 1 is complete. A good friend of mine helped out quite a bit with project. He supllied me with the table top materials as well as some the hardware needed to mount it to the TS. You can see that I decided to make the router insert plate out of plexiglas, 3/8” thick. The underneath photo shows how the adjustment blocks are mounted. One thing I had to do was to make a recess in the underside of the outfeed section. I had to do this in order to obtain a full 45 degree tilt. This was just the first part of an ongoing project. Next is to design an build a cabinet to go under the router table extension. Thanks for checking it out. Take care.

Excellent! May I ask: How exactly is the router attached to the plexiglass? Is there more going on under the table? And, where/what did you use for the router miter guide? Thanks!

I like how you extended the new tabletop around back of the tablesaw over the motor. Makes for a nice wide router table as well as a more useful saw table. Well done!

my TS could be your twin…..be it a different model….but same idea.

Great job…will be interested in seeing your cabinet under the router….

Do you have any issues with the motor/extension top when you want to tilt the blade???

Thanks for all the feedback. One thing that was brought to my attention was the possibility of the outfeed portion hindering the ability to obtain a full 45 degree tilt. So, what I have to do is remove some material from the underside of the outfeed section. It won’t have to be much but none the less it has to be done. Another valuable lesson learned.

Really like Your saw/router upgrade You have started, looking forward to the follow up. Are You planing to make a router fence that adapts to the saw’s fence as well ? Anyway, nice job on a popular upgrade !

Good job. Did you move the fence rail to the left to accomplish this? It looks like there is not enough rail on the working side of the blade?

Great work very clean. Looks great and should be a great asset to your shop. I’ll be posting a cabinet I’m building for under my Table saw that I have put a router table on soon. Look fwd to seeing more

Doug, If you have a link V- belt, try lengthening it a few links. You might not need to remove as much material from the bottom of your out feed table. At 45° (left tilt) I now have at least 1 1/2” clearance from top of table on my Delta contractor saw and it clears my Incra fence rail. It’s surprising how much difference adding a few links makes. -Jack
