Topic tags/keywords: table saw grizzly router extension question

Thinking about a Grizzly G0771Z….a step up from the Delta at Lowes. If I’m going to sport the extra few hundred for better trunion alignment and a better table/fence, I’m doing my homework on accessorizing. I’m no woodworker, I’m knee deep in a home renovation that has illustrated my current contractor saw isn’t up to the task, nor is my built-from-scrap-wood router table. I’m really interested in adding a router extension like many users on this forum have demonstrated. Few questions….can a router extension be added to the G0771Z? Looking at their web site, the front and back rails look kinda short to accept a table. Do new rails have to be purchased? I really like being able to add a standard size router plate, with some additional inches either on the end, or in between, to add another iron insert or whatever to get some “ripping plywood” width. As to a fence, forgive my lack of proper terminology, I see some posts where folks use the saw fence as the router fence, with all of the doo-dads for both mounted on it. I assume one would have to buy a special fence for that? It sure would be handy if I could get away with a single fence. Anyway, if anyone has this sort of set up, sure would be helpful if you could post what parts you used, or where you got them. Purchase decision will be based on ease and cost of getting the parts I need/want to bring my shop to a better quality “chop shop”. Thanks!
