I got the peachtree version http://www.ptreeusa.com/routerTables.htm (about 5/8 of the way down the page) because they had one that would fit my incra lift. It was cheaper also, although not by much. I am very happy with the setup, it saves me space in a one car garage shop. I had to re-drill the holes so that they would line up with my Grizzly G0715p, but that was easy as cast iron drill easy. They said it would not fit on the left side of my saw, since that is where the motor cover is, but it fits, if only barely. I have to remove the router lift and router to open the motor door, but I only do that a couple of times a year to clean out what the dust collector wont get in the first place. I have just finished a dedicated router table also, as it always seams that when I have the router setup, I need to cut something ! I like having both now :)

I bought the Bench Dog ProMax for two reasons, one I wanted to extend my tablesaw and two I wanted cast iron. However, you have my permission to go with the Rockler if that is your choice.

David,

I just picked up a used bench Dog Cast Iron Router extension because I wanted to get rid of the Open extension wing that came on my saw. They are a nice addition to any saw. I’d say go for it!

It looks like a good one to me. I am building my router table for a lot less, but it won’t be that good, I’m sure. I’m just too cheap to buy one like that, my saw was only $50.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.

I had the same one on my last saw and liked it. The saw itself wasn’t too heavy so the extra weight from the extension was a plus. Dust collection was decent and the fence is pretty nice.

Go for it, you’ll like it.

Have your say...
