Default Hi guys, I'm new here....

Hi, My name is Mike. I'm new here. I have a small shop. I like to tinker with making guitars and things. I just bought a Sawstop contractors with cast iron wings and Beismeyer fence. still putting it together. I had an undertable router mount on my old saw, that I made out of lexan. I'm wondering if I should do that again. I have a 2hp milwaukee router. I'm interested in pin routers and overhead routers for cutting guitar bodies. Thanks :?>

Hi Mike and welcome to the forum! Congrats on the saw! I think a router incorporated into a saw table is a great space saving idea. Unless it interferes with the Sawstop mechanism I can see no reason not to do it.

- welcome Mike.

- I see a lot of folks have routers mounted in saw wings. I still prefer to have a dedicated router table/cabinet combo. Keeps all my router junk, er, accessories together...

Greetings Mike and welcome to the router forum. We are pleased you have chosen to join with us.

For my part I would not want the saw and router in the same table. There are times that I might want to cut a piece and then use the router with it, just my opinion.
