I had a router table from sears but it took up to much room. I didnt like the feed table as it would mess up and scratch the wood. So I made a table to fit on my table saw. Not a new idea. Lots of them out there. But I dont like spending money on tools I already have. I think it works very well.

Always liked the idea of combining the TS and a router table.
Just makes sense to me, use the same large surface, fence/rails
and much less floor space used up.

It looks like something that will work just fine. Clever thinking.

I agree entirely Dave. I have done almost the identical thing with my table saw. It functions very well. I have a sacrificial MDF fence that fits over the TS fence that allows the back half of the router bit to be concealed.

Dave, this a efficient use of limited shop space. You have really upgraded your saw to make it more functional. The aftermarket fence is a great idea. You have really transformed your saw into a very useful tool.

By the way I see that you managed to catch a rare picture of one of the mysterious shop elves that seem to magically appear when we least expect them.

Great idea. That may be the first shop elf ever caught on camera, I can never see them in my shop. I think they come in at night time and move everything so I can’t find it.

Have your say...
