I was one of the unlucky ones that lost his shop(along with much more) to “Superstorm Sandy”. I live on the south shore of Long Island and ended up with 4 1/2 feet of salt water in my basement, which is where my shop is. When I replaced my table saw I bought a Sawstop Contractors saw with the 33” extension.
I would like to put a router table in that 33 inches. There is an article by Bill Wells in the February issue of Woodworkers Journal where he builds one with dust control built in(clever idea).
Any comments?

I have my router table in the right side of Ridgid table saw. I build dust collection into the fence. It gets almost all of the chips/dust. I just used a piece of melamine and bought a router plate made to go into a table.

I can get some pictures later. But you can search for router table in table saw and should be able to find lots of ideas.

I really like it because it is a big space saver. I don’t have room for a separate router table in my shop. And I can use the fence from my table saw, though I do use an auxiliary fence clamped to the regular fence.

Thanks for the response. I’ll look forward to seeing your pics, in the meantime I’ll do a little more searching.
