I'm building an extension table on my Jet table saw to house a router for
sake of space. I've seen some of the Rockler router table extensions, and
they use slots to guide and hold the fence. I have a 30" Jetfence, with
cast iron wings. If I buy the Rockler extension, I'd have to take out the
right cast iron wing, which I don't want to do. This is why I'm making my
own "smaller" version that will fill up the empty space.
My questions are:
1. Is there any advantage in somehow using the table saw fence as a router
2. If so, how can I go about doing it? I can't figure out any way to attach
another fence to it, without drilling holes in it. I've never used a router
table, but it seems like a clamped on fence would get in the way, so that
seems out of the question.
I've searched all over this newsgroup and can't find the answer to this.
I'm not an expert, so what I am asking may be stupid.
Thanks in advance,
