Default Using Table saw extension as router table

G,Day all,I am a newbie to this forum but need information for using the extension to my table saw.I intend to remove a leaf,leaving a 650mmX800mm area.Using twox19 mm mdf will give me the required thickness compliant to the table saw bed thickness.Has someone on this forum tried this and if so, how successful was it.I have purchased a generic router plate which will drop into the recess in the mdf,but cant get my head around as to what the two removable rings in the phenolic plate are for.I intend to mount my Triton to the plate and have no problems with that.Any info/constructive critisism would be appreciated.Regards.....AL

I believe that has been done by some of the members,. MDF will make a very good router table. If you decide to take this route, be sure to post pics for us all too follow your project.

the removable rings are to be removed for larger size bits.

there are several designs on here for router tables that have been added as table saw extensions.

do a search and you will see several ideas to copy from.

Default Had a great day

Following up on past comments today was great.Had to cut two rebates,one at two mills,the other at five.Then cut through the other 32mm with my old black and decker to remove the insert to take the router plate.Used a guide bush(first time) and was impressed.Have to take it down another mill or two making it flush for the rebates.Roast chicken for tea and all the vegies......small scotch.......if this is retirement....I can handle it...........AL

The work on the router table came to a screeching halt yesterday.Walking past my jointer I noticed the outfeed height lever was loose.Tried to tighten it by rotation..no result.Turned it anti clockwise and was greeted by the ominous sound of the nut and washer falling off and landing inside the bed on top of the cabinet.Well,that took care of Wednesday arvo and half of today,this time its locktited on!Hopefully back to the router table this afternoon,Regards...........AL
