Default router base to saw extension?

I,m new to Router Forums. I am looking for ideas about putting a p.c.690 router base under the extension table of my Uni saw. It is an older saw with the goose egg cover. I will be making drawers to the right for blades and such.
Thanks, Rick

Default router in a table saw extention

Hi Rick,

That's what I use a table saw extension and it has worked very well. I have been using this for over a year. Like most my space is limited. I got the Bench Dog 40-102 cast iron extension with appropriate router plate insert (for Bosch 1617) be advised however, that this unit is quite heavy over 100 lbs. Installation and initial set up was easy and once set has remained set.

After a year of use if I have a problem it would be that the router table is a bit too low for me. I am tall so this may not be the same for you or anyone else. Previously I used a bench-top router table and for my height that was better. Don't get me wrong the table saw extension is far and away better, the table is solid, much larger, and the added weight helps with the table saw itself. Plus with the table being lower I have better control over the work. But sometimes my back!

You got nothing to loose by looking at this type of set up. Hope this helped.
