I did some searching on this idea and didn’t come up with anything, so thought I might ask. I have one of those Incra 28×21 table saw extension type router table tops, and my latest idea is to modify my outfeed table to become a larger size, offset style router table and mount a removable Incra LS17 fence system.
2) Is this a silly/pointless idea? If I am doing that much work, should I just go ahead and rout a hole for the router plate instead, rather than using the existing extension? I am assuming that perhaps the extension top I have will be flatter for better accuracy immediately surrounding the router bit, and that the size of the router plate hole will be more exact (plus it has built in leveling screws already). Maybe I am underestimating the degree of flatness to which I can make a full router table top.
