Default Overhead Pin Router

Hi all, I came across this site as I was doing research on building my own overhead pin router from an old radial arm saw. Hopefully someone in the group will have some words of wisdom. I understand that some of the old RAS units sold by Montgomery Wards had a feature that provided a second high speed arbor has that been discussed at all? I look forward to any responses thanks!

Thanks for the warm welcome, I did check out the link provided and have been contemplating the drill press idea. It is interesting but not really what I had in mind. Recently I have picked up a couple of old Craftsmen Radial Arm Saws thinking I could find some good way to mount an old router onto it and take advantage of all its flexability. Hopefully I will hear some more good ideas. Safe woodworking all.
