I needed a fast and dirty Router table and this is what I came up with. The insert has lips that fit into the groove front of the saw and lays over the back of the saw. The Router I am using is close to 40 years old and is a pain to adjust when on the Saw. I need some hints on a new tabletop adjustable Router.

Triton has the above table adjustments. Pretty good router from what I hear. I believe I just read that the new Bosch combo router has the same feature. The advantage there is that you can leave the standard (non plunge) body bolted on the router and just remove the router motor and use the plunge router outside of the table. There are several routers that have above table adjustments.

Nice work on the router table. Looks nice.

Great way to maximize the table function on that saw… You will want to build a proper fence for that thing…. Take a glance at my router table fence if you need ideas…

Sorry for the double post

I used to have the same saw. Here's the table and fence I ended up with. I still don’t have a table top adjustable router, but a newer router with a permanent base mounted on the plate is pretty easy to adjust in my opinion. One thing you’ll notice is the removable plate like a commercial router would be mounted to. This let me pick the router up out of the table to change bits.
