Sounds about right. I’m not sure I’d worry about the table dropping off beyond the miter slot. Is “left” in the second picture “toward the camera” in the first? Is the router in the blue box?

You might consider deeper angle braces to replace the ones to the right of the blue box. “Deeper” meaning a longer leg that sticks down. They look like they’re only about half as deep as the main one that goes along the edge.

But before you do any of that, just loosen the screws that tighten the table top to those braces and stick a business card or two in between there, on either side of that center screw, retighten and see how big a change you get.
