Default Proper mounting and use

I have a Ryobi router mounted to the bottom of the extension on my Sears table saw. I have come to learn recently that I have been routing incorrectly and dangerously.

I need an attachment to go on the fence of the table saw to allow for safe routing. Does anyone know where I can obtain one?

Also - should I be feeding with or against the rotation of the bit?

Thanks -

Greetings and welcome (your name here). Check out this thread to see how to run the wood int your router http://www.routerforums.com/portable...mplicated.html This is an ongoing thread and you should get good information here. I am not sue how you have your router table mounted on your table saw so I will not venture there until you can make it more understandable,

Hello RMansfield,
Bob J. and Jerry are two, of the many, top people here, they always have good advice!

To extend what Bob said; I built an attachment, for my table saw fence, much like his diagram.
Please see the attached photos because it just might be easier to visualize than a sketch.

Also, I recommend the clamps by Rockler to hold the thing in place on your table saw fence.

Since those photos were taken, I added an adjuster to the fence, but these photos are more true to Bob's diagram. Naturally, you'll have to determine the measurements of how far the fence moves left on your table saw to determine how big the spacer blocks should be. Not forgetting the width of your fence, ( as you are facing the router table area), will be determined by your table area and saw's fence.

Optionally, one could add feather boards or tracks to the fence, but C-clamps will work as well to hold those in place.

If you're halfway interested, my adaption can be seen here.

Cordially,
Gerry

Gerry I am more then flattered to have my name even mentioned in the same sentence with Bobj. I am pretty new at this but do try to learn what I can in the forum. Once the basement is done, speaking of which I had better get down there, I truly hope to get some good experience under my hat.

Thank you for the compliment.
