I recently purchased a TS2424 and I have it set up with the Herculift stand for now so I can use it. However, I would like some input about building a cabinet style work bench for it to sit on and get rid of the stand. My reasoning is because I would like to use the same fence for my router. So I would make a table top to the right with the Kreg plate I ordered and have it all in one station.

Any input or plans, designs would be very much appreciated.

If you are want/need mobility, stick with the h-lift. It’s one of the best mobile bases ever made. You can still add a router table extension that so by using an attachment to the cast-iron pans and the rails as the supports I’ve done that and it works . You won’t bend the rails. Matter of fact, the rails can be slid to the right raider ripping capacity, approximately 36 inches. That’s a great saw.I have a 2412 and I souped up with cast-iron wings, longer rails and a Herc-u-lift. The OEM fence on that saw is every bit as accurate and reliable as a T – square fence. Also, those gray colored rigid tablesaw’s carry a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, regardless of who owns the tool. Good luck on your purchase. IMHO, it will do everything in a hobbyist woodshop that needs to be done.
