Default tablesaw mounted router

Hi there. I have a Ridgid TS3660 tablesaw in my shop. I want to mount a router to the extension wings, but not quite sure how I should go about it. Is there an aftermarket product that will work on that particular saw ? Or will I have to fabricate my own version? Has anyone else done this?
I would appreciate any help or suggestions.
Thanks.

Hello Joel: Glad to welcome You! I don't know of any aftermarket solutions to the problem, but My feelings are that You will be much happier to take Your time and check on the forum, and others for the best solution to meet Your individual taste. I used to have a table made by My table saw co. on My saw, and I didn't like. The reason was that the fence of the table is set up to work with the router, Possibly a add on to the saw fence. Any time You need to use the saw with the fence, You need to remove the router goods off the table,and loose all the settings You were using on the router. That is the down side. It will support the router well without an extra table!

I thought of an extension, to put on my table saw---
after giving it lots of thought, evaluating the pros and cons,
I decided to go with a separate bench style router table.

With an extension on the table saw, I decided it would be to much of a hassle putting it up and taking it down, and resetting everything---
so I scrapped that idea.

With a separate bench style router table, I can leave it set up and tote it around to the job site.

You can make/buy a separate stand, to fasten the router table, to the top side---either bolt it or clamp it.
You can enclose the base, install shelve(s) and drawer(s), to store your router tools and associated accessories.

Works much better for me.
