Robert, if you do not own a PC 7518 yet I would suggest buying one of the 2-1/4 HP combo models instead. The 7518 is very heavy and not good for doing small jobs in tight places. Don't get me wrong, I own a 7518 for doing the heavy stuff. I think you will find that hanging your router under your saw is more work than it is space saving. There are many good small table designs. I suggest you check out the Oak Park site and look at the Router Workshop table. Another good spot is ShopNotes. They have 3 very cool table designs. It is much easier to store a small router table under your saw than it is to adjust and mount and dismount your router there. check this out i have the fences and the brass bar's the table with the dust shoot's is the one i built or made the base for it they have lot's of good item's their del schisler
