I’m about to pull the trigger on adding a cast iron router table extension from Grizzly to finish out my 691 table saw, I wrote the support team at Grizzly to ask if I could replace the MDF extension and router tables with a standard cast iron extension wing and their cast iron router table extension together. The responded that I probably could (“with some modifications”) but they have never done it and couldn’t make any recommendations. So, what I’m thinking about is buying their T10222 Router Extension Table Saw Table ($443 including shipping) and the P0690007 standard extension wing ($49.75 plus shipping and handling) so I will have a completly cast iron table surface for the whole TS and router table surface. (standard left side wing + normal table top + additional right side wing + router table = total cast iron surface. Sounds awesome doesn’t it?

My question: have any of you actually done this? Seems to me that (since it’s such a great idea) it should be a standard table saw option accross table saw manufacturers instead of those crappy MDF or shop made table extensions. Any advice? Anything to worry about or concerns to be addressed?

Probably know this, but you’ll need some outrigger legs for stability.
