I have a 97’ Grizzly G1023 saw with a 36” Shop fox fence. It has roughly a 20” gap between the right wing and the end of the Angle iron brackets. I figured it might be a good location for a router?

I wasn’t sure if maybe someone has done this on this model or a saw with a 36” fence. Wasn’t sure if there was enough space.

I have a Shop Fox W1677, which is essentially the same as the G1023SL that I have added router table to. It works out great for a small shop short on space. My fence originally had 26” rip capacity, but I slid the rails over to give 36” rip. I’ve since added a Jet Xacta II fence with a router fence on it, but the rails are the original Shop Fox Classic rails. The cabinet underneath is no it’s own wheels and just rolls in and out.
