Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw router table saw with router table extention wing

I’m about to add a router table on the right extention wing I just made for my Delta Table Saw 37-725. I would just appreciate some advice before I just go at it. (And regret it later lol)

So I made the extention wing kinda big, I was thinking about installing router plate in the middle. Which would give me a good 12” to 13” from miter Guage to router bit. And another 12” from fence to bit. (If I need to go that far)

Is that a good idea, or too much? (All I know is my current cheap router table is about 4” from miter gauge to bit and 3” from fence to bit.)

Now any suggestions on the fence set up? I figure I got 3 different ways to do it.

1. Add router table fence as an attachment for my table saw fence. (Is dust collection harder to set up this way?)

2. Route slot for a dedicated fence for my router table

3. Instead of routing slots install 2 t tracks for fence. ( Same concept as the slots, just T track instead)

I was looking at the kreg router insert and also some cheaper ones. Is getting a higher $ insert important

This will be my first router table build. My current one doesn’t even have an insert. So not really fimilar with them.

I would do #1. I think you could make something similar to the Incra with a channel for DC.

I would definitely go with T tracks on both table and fence. I used a combo T track/miter slot in the table.
They are needed for feather boards.

I just used a phenolic plate for the insert it works fine.

I’d like to get a nice router lift but not in the budget/important enough right now, so I use the Router Raizer.
Some routers like the Triton have built in lift but not sure how accurate they are.
