Default Table saw router extention

Craftsman used to make a router extention for their tablesaw. Does anyone know where to find one or does anyone have plans on how to make a router extention for a tablesaw. I am interested due to limited space in shop.

Have you considered Incra Tools. Their Fence Positioner System employs two rails that are attached to the table saw, one on the back of table and one in front. A router table can be mounted between the rails. You may not need to or want to spend the money for the entire system, but might just purchase the raills which will work I think, I'm not certain about the actual table that you will use as I am only familiar with the one proviced by Incra that works with their positioner systgem. Go to the web an look for Incra Tools, the look for their demos and watch the demo on the LS Fence Positioning System. Be careful, you might decide that you can't live without the entire system.

I put folding legs on a router table top so I can store it vertically next to a wall.

You might consider solving your space problem the same way so you can move work back and forth between router and table saw without affecting your setup.

Make your own mount in the wing of your table saw.

The switch and box you see is to use the main switch to energize either the saw or router and also turns on my dust collection system:

I'm exploring the same idea. Looked at the INCRA products -- neat but pretty expensive. Now looking at the Bench Dog ProMax Cast Iron Router Table Extension (either 40-031 or 40-102, maybe both) which looks like a good fit for my Jet HWTS-10JF table saw. So I'd like to continue to follow this discussion with you.
Question to all: is there a way for me to "tag" this "thread" so I can easily find it later without having to search manually?
Thanks,
Terry

It should already be tagged for you. If you look at the threads in this-the table mounted routing section. There should be a check mark left side of page next to the thread. In options under settings there is also a "Default Thread Subscription Mode". You can be e-mailed instantly, daily, weekly or not at all when there is a new reply.....

My wife sure agrees with you on the fact that the Incra Tool line is expensive, but boy are they nice, and the tech support is second to none which for me as a newby to woodworking, has been a great help. I am one of those people that really likes good tools, wish I was more profient with them, but the learning curve is the journey that I am on and am really enjoying it.

I made a table on the left side of my craftsman saw.
I used 5/8 all thread as suoports to the tablesaw legs at a 45 degree angle. Made for a very stout table that coukd be easily leveled up to my table saw and didnt rely on the rails for support. Ill see if i still have pictures buried somewhere

I've had the Incra TS-LS (Table Saw rail system) for 5 years, and am a believer in Incra solutions, properly applied. It is dead accurate, repeatable, very reliable - you can throw away your tape measure. Mark Mueller, at Incra, has been very helpful in working through different alternatives; though, it does finally rest on one's desire to pay the 'freight' associated with Incra solutions. It is expensive once! In addition to the TS-LS system, you would have to purchase the Wonder Fence, as well.
Certainly, there are alternatives to Incra tables - I believe that most Forum members could build and install a very acceptable table.
