As far as I can tell the table stayed as flat as ever. Gray cast iron is a pretty stable material. You will need to look your table over pretty close as you can see mine was barley thick enough to leave a lip for the router base it sit on in places. I used the extra thickness of the miter gauge slot to give full support on one side. Good luck I am waiting to see pictures of some more of these that the LJ community builds. I am sure someone can make a better one. I used my router in the wood table extension of my shop saw for years and it worked great but it was always in the way for ripping sheet goods and lacked portability. This table is small enough to take with me to job sites.
