Hey all, I just got a new saw and I’m wondering about sinking a router table into the extension wing on it. I got a Delta ts300, anyone know about doing this to that saw, or really just installing one on anysaw?

-- Cheers

It’s pretty straight forward. Check the Rockler catalog they have a the part you’ll need. You can start of with mounting to a router plate. Personally Ibought a extra base for my porter cable and just leave it mounted to my table. I cut a 7” round moritse 3/16” deep nto the bottom of my table and attacached my extra base to it. Then I used the router to cut it’s ow hole through the top. This makes sure your hole is centered. About 3” from center a drilled a 3/8” hole 1/2” deep to put a start pin in the talble. Then I made a fence with a cut out for the bit, that fits over the table saw fence. This is kept in place by a tight fit. So if I need a router fence I just slide the table saw fence over to ue with the router.
I want to change a few things such as mounting my spare base the a router table insert. This way I can take the insert ith the router still attached riht out of the table to set my depth. Instead of having to reach under the table to do it. The other way I have thought of doing it is to use a router lift, but they are not cheap.

I hope I explained it clear enough it 3:45 in the orning and I couldn’t really sleep so I got up and figured I would see whats going on on the LJ site. I never planned on writing anything, I’ still half sleep so please excuseany error in spelling. Any ? feel free to email, I will try o answer any ? questions if I can.

Happy Wodworking,

Hi Shawn,
Woodpeckers is a pretty good place to start… They have a lot of options including router plates and lifts. I personaly have a woodpecrker table and quick lift for my Porter Cable. My table is seperate from the saw, but is 3/4” less in height so I can also use it as an additonal out feed table. Having an additional table sometimes is a pain for a small shop, but it does allow you to keep your router set up and is not affected by using your saw.
