Hello again. I’m planning to add a router extension to my Craftsman 113.xxxxx. I’m trying to decide if I should take off the right CI wing and make it one piece or if I should leave it on and make the router extension around 14 – 16” and bolt it to the CI extension. Any thoughts one way or the other would be appreciated, thank you.

Leave the cast iron.

Agree leave the CI on the table, whats your fence set up? I use a couple of quick-grip clamps to attach my router fence to my TS fence and it works pretty well, I’ve got a router wing added to the right of my CI on a saw similar to yours, see here

I plan on putting the Delta T3 fence on the saw. So far I have cleaned the whole saw, everything inside and out. New machined pulleys and belt from Inline industries. Also just installed PALS on it and the blade is now dead on. I do have both CI wings reinstalled after cleaning, repainting and sanding the tops of them. Just ordered a zero clearance insert and Micro Jigs splitters. The saw runs better than new now.

Have your say...
