Finished with the fence (attached to the TS fence) and put the RT plate insert in this morning. Fits nicely. Leveling kit is worth the money. Next up is the miter gauge track.

Very nice. I have the same table saw and router lift set up on mine just like yours. Yours looks a little cleaner though.

Looks nice, but the fence is on the wrong side of the bit is it not? Or do you set the fence at the front then feed the stock from the back?

I used both the TS and RT today. The fence works well attached to the TS fence. I have a leveling system (8 screws) installed. I am going to have to remove them one-by-one and shorten them. I have over and inch hanging down on the inside of my table and two sets of them really get in the way installing or changing a bit. Decreases the available room for the wrench to move. I was going to add a cover at the bottom of the box of the RT to hide the pile of power cables. However, if I do that, the first time I used the plunge router, it will take forever to get all the cables from under the shelf to use in the plunge router, hand held. Oh well, life should be so complicated…I appreciate my little problems compared to how the current world is going.

Finished. Inserted the miter track, mounted tools, and made a false bottom to the RT to hide power cables. Now if they just had a “shortie” cable for the DeWalt I would not have to pile 7 feet of cable under the false bottom. Anyone know of a short cable for a DeWalt 618?
