Not sure if I want a router or just an extension for my Grizzly G0715P Table saw. I already have a router table(not the best, but it works) but its always nice to have an extra.Or do you guys think it would just be a pain in the a$$. However, my question is….............How do I bolt the table down? Will I have to drill holes in the rails? Thats what I figured I would do, but i dont wanna start drilling holes in my rails to later find out that I didn’t have too. Does anyone know of any good websites or have pictures for ideas. I browsed the website and did find a few, but more is better. Thanks!!!!!!

I have a Grizzly router wing on my saw and stock it was OK but I have made it work great. The router attachment is pretty basic but does hold firmly. I had to add my own fence and miter slot. The new wing they offer looks a lot more fancy but also costs a lot. I was looking at the Bench Dog wing for a little while and it gets good reviews. To make your own I wouldn’t stress too much about putting holes in the rails. You could add a ledge to the inside of the rails with the possibility of removing or replacing the router table with an extension. You can make your own router wing and plate or just make the wing to fit a store bought plate (more expensive but a nicer and longer lasting option). Check out my two projects related to table saw router wings and fences.

THANKS for the reply Jason. When to talk about adding a ledge, what exactly do you mean?

I put one at the end of my tablesaw and didn’t need to drill into the rails. The Sawstop has angle iron mounted to the rails that typically held up the phenolic extensions. I just used them to hold up the router table that I made.

Here’s the link showing the router side of the table.

Here’s mine. Should look a lot like Ted’s ;)

I did drill into the rails for mine. Didn’t enjoy doing it, but it worked out fine.
