Anyone tried the Bench Dog router table that attaches to the table saw?

I'm also interested in hearing from someone that has it.

This topic comes up from time to time. My advice is to not purchase this style of table and here is my reasoning: Your table saw is not the prefered height for a router table for most woodworkers. Set up's take more time and are more difficult because of the router location on the saw table. If space is a concern then consider that many router tables are designed to be clamped onto a work bench or sit on a stand. It is a simple matter to store one of these tables underneath the tablesaw wings and the stand under the other side. You get the advantage of saving space and still can tailor your table to your height requirments. If you consider the projects you intend to make you may discover that you wish to work mostly with smaller pieces of wood or if you have a health condition it may be to your benefit to design your table so you can sit to work at it. Again these designs would store under your saw's wings so you don't need to constantly make changes in your set ups. Food for thought.
