Default Adding Miter Track

I have a older CMT Router cabinet modle 999.402.00 it has no miter slot. There is not a lot of room to install one on the front of the cabinet. The top of the cabinet is 1 1/8 thick, I think there is sufficient depth,but am concerened with the width. From the edge of the drop in plate to the outer most edge of the cabinet is 2 inches. The miter will be 3/4 inch wide,leaving me with an 1 1/4 material to work with. Centering the slot within the center of the 1 1/4 inch thats left, gives me 5/8th on each side of the 3/4 miter slot. My question is, is this enough material to cut the miter slot,or should the bottom side be beefed up. The thickness of the top diminishes 3/8th under the slot leaving only 3/4in thickness.

Hello Bob, welcome the router Community.

Is there more room at the back of the table Can you reverse the fence and use the back side of the table

Looking forward to your participation.

of the back side of the table is not repeatable until I go and measure it. My profile already denotes tools in shop and years experience

Bob check out the thread "Router table top material?" currently running. I would ask why you want a miter track. They aren't absolutely necessary.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
