Topic tags/keywords: question router tablesaw

Newbie here – I recently purchased a General 50-240 table saw. I have a small shop and am planning on mouting an extention router table on the right side using the saws fence supports (these extend 18” or so past the end of the right leaf). My concern is how do I line up the top to be level with the saw? There ARE holes in the fence that I can use, but I am worried about drilling accuratly enough to get the table mounted flush and level.

Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated.

The best advice I have seen about this kind of task is to temporarily clamp the extension in place with several boards extending from the main table saw top over to the new extension wing. Clamping on both the original table saw top and the new extension wing top will insure that the wing is positioned level with the original top, then you can secure it from the sides with screws through the fence rail brackets. Drilling the holes in the extension wing slightly over-sized will allow some slop to play with.
