I recently bought a Milwaulkee router, model or catelogue # 5625-20.
I don't have a router cabinet, though I've considered making or buying
one. I've discovered this set-up, router mounted under the right side
of the table saw extension table:
Is this a practical option for mounting a router? I have 2 Unisaws
with extension tables and if this is a reasonable option for router
placement, I may opt for this kind of mounting.
One extension table is 3/4" ply with formica top (rough cutting,
utility blade saw) and the other extension table is 1-1/2" solid wood
with formica top (fine, delicate and/or precision cutting WWII blade
saw). Both saws with Delta 50" Unifence. I would suspect the
Unifences are not recommended for router use. Is this correct or is
there a modification (sacrificial board?) that can be added to a
Unifence for use with a router? In the link, I see no separate fence
for the router. Also, which extension table might best be used for
the router? I'm thinking the 3/4".... I kinna don't like the idea of
cutting a hole in my big 1-1/2" thick extension table (4' W X 6' L).
* I haven't used the new router, yet, to know if it will rise far
enough to clear a 1-1/2" thick table top properly.
Thanks for any help.
