Topic tags/keywords: router table grizzly t10222

Hello,
I’ve been reading posts on the LJ site for a couple of years now, and am very appreciative for all the great knowledge here! I’m a first time poster!

I am trying to maximize my shop space, have Grizzly G0690TS, and was considering buying the TS extension router table, model T10222. (it looks like a great setup, and I like the idea of the double-cross miter slots)
www.grizzly.com/products/Router-Extension-Table-for-Table-Saw/T10222

After thinking about it a while, I decided I didn’t want my router combined on my TS, as sometimes I setup the router for multiple pieces and wouldn’t want to have to take it down to run something through the TS.

I am considering purchasing the router extension top anyhow, and building a free-standing table around this top. My question(s), I suppose, are: Does anyone have this table top and what do they think of it? , Do you think building it into a free-standing table is feasible or worthwhile? , or Are there other router-tables I should be considering? (I have a triton router with the crank lift, so I don’t need a router lift on whichever table I buy)

Thanks!
Drew

It is only a problem when you regularly use the table saw for something very wide ( in which case you should consider a tracksaw).

This is the advantage of a router inset plate. The whole router & bit are removed in seconds and replaced when needed. You could even go as far as having multiple plates for dedicated bits/routers.

Which T10222 does not let you do.
