I have the Woodhaven TS extension. It is made with 1 1/16" laminated MDF
with a 3/8" phenolic insert. I reinforced the bottom with two 1" steel
bars, hoping I could just leave the router in. If that is a bad idea, do
those of you with TS router tables just make or buy a blank insert for when
the router is out?
When I had a TS router table extension I kep my PC 690 in a Rouseua
base for 6 years or more. The extension was homemade from an old
kitchen countertop - formica over 3/4 ply (1&1/2 inches along the
edges. It was fitted with a 30 inch Unifence that did double duty for
the router as well as the TS. (Wow, I must be feeling like a veteran
poster now that I've started abreviating tools!)
Unless the manufacturer of your insert advises against it, I'm
confident that you could leave the router in full time.
