Talking Ridgid ts3650 Table & router

Hello Everyone,
this is my first post - pleased to meet all you wood enthusiasts.
hopefully some of your experience can contribute to the lack of mine.

I'm looking to by a Ridgid TS3650 table saw - i've read the reviews and think its the right one for me.

i have the Ridgid Router combo and i want to save some money by making the table for it myself. Can i buy a plate and feel confident that this will be a solid table? Can I build it into the wings of the TS3650 and use the tblsaw fence to double as a router fence?

Welcome to the forums, Mick Tools.

The Ridgid review shows a lot of nice features and a not too bad of a price. I hope you enjoy your saw and make some saw dust.

Have a great day!

Welcome to the forums. The Ridgid has a pretty good reputation. Nice saw.

Unless you have severe space limitations I suggest you build your router table separate from your saw. You will find that making adjustments to the router in a saw table is more difficult and time consuming than on a free standing unit. You can build a table with the features you deem best easily. I highly recommend the tables from Shopnotes #1 and Oak Park, the home of The Router Workshop. Having built both I can tell you they perform well.
