I am in the midst of working on a crib, rocking chair and cradle. Ever since I found my used Table saw I have wanted to put a new fence on it. I am also in need of a router table to make some jobs a little easier. I work in about 2/3 of our “2” car garage and like the idea of combining the router table into my table saw. I currently have a Rigid TS2424 table saw that to this point has worked really well. At some point I would like to upgrade to a cabinet style saw. Is it overkill to put the incra combo on the rigid? Is it a good product? I like the looks of it but have never been able to use one. The good news is since we are expecting we have been purging extra stuff out of our house. I have sold enough to purchase the combo and pay for shipping so my wife has told me to pull the trigger. I guess I am just looking for feedback. I hate spending money but prefer quality if it is available. My main thing is: Am I investing too much with such and old saw?
Thanks

I have the Incra system on my Jet saw and love it. I don’t think you are wasting you money because the Incra can be moved to the new saw, if you decide to get one. I think once you see the precision of the Incra you will decide you don’t need to upgrade your saw, just put a good thin kerf blade on it. What does your saw measure, in depth, at the wings? This is the deciding factor for the router table setup, if it’s the standard 27 inches then your good to go. If it’s less then 27 inches you would have to trim the table to fit.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah the saw is 27 inches so that would work. I had the same thought about moving moving thefence to a new saw. Figure I will put the rigid fence in the atic then I will have it if I ever replace the saw. Think I willpull the trigger when I get home today

I think you will like it. I like the router table insert and the throat plate system Incra has. I got the wonder fence with mine and added the dust removal box, that bolts to the bottom of the table. With the 4 inch connected to the box and a 2 1/2 connected to the fence it works great with my DC system, practically no dust to worry about when using the router.
