Default T/S Router Extension

I'm planing on building a router table later this summer that will probably be using both the Incra Positioner & the Jessem Mite-R-Slide!

But for now I want to make a router extension wing for the right hand side of my Ridgid TS3650 table saw. I looked through a lot of postings here & I've seen some good ideas, However none of the posts have gone into any detail on how they connected the tables to the fence arms or side wings?

Does anyone have any pictures or drawings of the braces used & their connections to the fence arms or wings!

do you know about the rigid forums?

***ridgidforum.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?****

there are some threads on your exact question****ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7542&page=12"]http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7542&page=12*****


I just mounted AL angle to the fence rails to sit the router table top on so it was flush. I used (for the first time) phenolic resin coated plywood and I've been quite pleased with the results. YMMV.



I dont' have enough posts to put up url's so you will have to ridgidforum.com yourself and search. If you go to the tips and techniques section and look for the "3650 outfeed table" thread about 7 rows down you will get a good start.

I removed the TS extension from my saw. I then cut a couple pieces of 3/4 plywood and laminated them together. Then I cut them to fit between my TS fence rails. You will see that the rails on your saw are held away from the saw top by about a half inch or so...correct? Well, cut your router table to fit in the same way. After you have it cut to size clamp or hot glue a couple boards across the router table and rest the ends of the boards on the fence rails. Now you router top is suspended between the fence rails. Now, mark where the mounting holes go through the rails and where they attach to the side of the TS top. Now drill out those holes and attach the router table to the saw table. I used washers and even a large nut as chims between the fence rails and the router table. Install bolts and tighten it up. Use a straight edge and rubber mallet or a board and hammer to align the router table with the TS table.

I actually drilled new holes in my fence rails, farther out from the saw so that the router table would be supported farther out.

It seems complicated the first time you do it but it really is not.

1) laminate your 2 pices of ply.
2) cut to fit between rails and extend as far out as you want them.
3) suspend top between rails.
4) mark holes.
5) drill holes.
6) attach top between rails using long bolts and washers or nuts.

Looks like I have access now.
(I still don't think I can post links)

if you go to the rigid forums and the woodworking section of "tips and techniques" you will find a thread about 8 rows down titled "outfeed table". It should give you all the info you need.

with it I built this





search the rigid forums for router tables and you will find lots of folks who have put one on their 3650 and 3660

have fun
Paul

apparently I can't post pictures or links yet without moderator approval Big Jim must have seen my post but we still can't see it.

I'm trying to pass on that there is a really good thread on rigid forums for this exact question.

have fun
Paul
