I just purchased a new Rigid TS2400LS Table Saw. I read when
researching the purchase, that a router table/plate could be added to
the saw. The saw table splits in half, making a hole that a router
mount of some sort could be added using the table saws existing fence
for the router also. The local Woodcrafters store has a predrilled
plate that will fit my router, but would need some other larger plate
to fit in the saw table. If you have ever seen anything like this
rigged up, please post back. Thanks so much.
Robatoy and all,
Thanks for the replies, did you use a ready made router plate and then
set the plate in your homemade plate? Or did you just make the
homemade one and then drill it to fit your router? Where would my best
bet be to find some soild surface material to make the plate? My
router is a Porter Cable 692, 1 1/2hp with the "D" handle.

When I needed some small pieces of Corian to make zero clearance inserts for
my table saw I went to a custom kitchen and bathroom fabricator and asked if
they could spare any scraps. They knidly supplied me with a small stack of
them at no charge.

My saw had cast iron wings with supporting ribs underneath them. Even with
all that iron, I was able to use a flexible grinding disk in a drill to
grind away the ribs in a specific area then I mounted my 3hp Makita router
directly to the wing. The grinding took several hours, but got finished
eventually. Worked out fine with the rail and stile router bits I used to
build some cabinets for my mother's kitchen.
