Default Incra Left side router table top

I suppose this question may have been asked and answered before. I am downsizing my shop. I am going from about 400 sq ft to 160 sq ft. I have decided that I need to replace some dedicated tools because of the lack of space. My free standing router table being one of them. It is large, takes up floor space and over the years, I have figured out I need far less surface area to work with.
I am using a Incra TS-LS table saw fence and am now contemplating purchasing and using a left side mounted router table. As I love my Incra TS fence, I was wondering if any one has or is using any of the Incra router table tops and what your opinion of them is???

Lee looking at or information I see you have a Sears radial arm saw. That is what I would get rid of instead of your Bench Dog router table. BD tables are awesome. You can do I think about anything on the table saw that you can do on the radial saw. That is my opinion.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I totally agree with Don. After long and hard consideration I sold my radial arm saw a few years ago. I used it a lot. Since selling it I have never missed it it. Not even from the first day.

I have run out of space in my shop. I am working on a cutting table to replace my radial arm saw. This table will be more accurate that the radial arm with more capability. It is based oh the perf dogs used with a crude mft table only 4 holes and my cheap track saw.
