Router Table for a Ridgid table saw

Here is a bunch of pictures of a router table I made that attaches to the part of the saw the expands for wide rip cuts. The table saw can still be used in this position if the “overhead dust collection” is removed. The stick is there to keep the table from sagging. Of course, it would not be hard to glue some supports to the bottom of the table. And the table is removable by unscrewing three screws.

I did the same thing, to the same saw. I made a bunch of accesories for the TS fence too. Then I slapped my original incra on it. Worked really well. Id still be using it if it wasnt just a little too low. Nice work!

i have a table saw similar to this. i like the idea of adding a router table. Is it sturdy? does the fence work well?

I also have this saw and would appreciate a little more info on how you mounted it without interfering with the saw fence guide rails.

good job man. i find for a lot of table routing tasks, you don’t need a fancy fence and what not. a straight faced fence is all you need sometimes. that’s a good little setup. should work well

Thanks guys,

mIps – the fence guide rails are hollow and have a groove on the inside. The fence rides on the outside of the rails, while the table sits in the slots on the inside of the rails. Hopefully this makes sense. i’m not very good at explaining things.
