I know that. But the SS has a short extension table made of something
much lighter than cast iron before the extension table. The Professional
edition is available in 30" and 36" (and 52"). It's probably just that
6" of the table between 30" and 36". It was pointed out to me that it is
available in cast iron.
I think a router table is a short table wouldn't be what I wanted but
to each their own. Keep in mind Bill if you go over budget and it
hurts a little it's much better then not getting what ;you need and
having to do it again.
Not cast iron ones, at least not that I've ever seen or heard of.
However, I have drilled/jig sawed out a heavy cast iron table saw
extension before for use with a router. Along with using a heavy
flexible cut off wheel in a drill to grind away part of the extension
ribs underneath, the whole process took a little over an hour. Not
difficult, just a little tedious.
Is an hour of your time and $1 for a cutoff sanding wheel worth your
effort if you have a cast iron table saw extension?
While I haven't seen a cast iron extension set up for a router as
original equipment (except on the 3K Powermatic), they're certainly
available aftermarket. For example:

Or for an entire prefab table, try this at half the price:
Mod it to fit your TS if necessary, but a separate table is nice if
you want to leave the fences intact each time. The TS fence is less
useful, anyway, since it isn't 2-piece.

Aw, Hell. Gimme CHOCOLATE!

I've never seen a table saw top too unflat to be useful
(but cast iron with a crack, I HAVE seen). And don't check
for alignment, you will have to set up and realign completely
regardless, after moving the machine into your work area.
