    It's pretty easy to fit nearly any router table that spans at least 27" to a TS. You can make your own in a matter of an hour or so, or buy one of the many 27" router tables with precut holes for router plates...MLCSWoodworking, Rockler, Freud, Grizzly, BenchDog, Woodpeckers, Woodcraft, Eagle America. Most won't be a direct fit, but are pretty easy to adapt.

    There are tons of examples...Google "router table" or "Router table plans".

      Scope out the general international router table attachements for the TS. Cast Iron, methinks about the 130$ range, Kill two birds with one stone...Ts table gets larger, no wimpy router table tops to sag and droop. (and unless they'r metal, they all do this. Added bonus, with a modicum of refinement, yer TS fence doubles as a router table fence.

      To me most economical choice. Scope it out, make yer own decision. Remember, cast I ron don't sag...

        Just a side-note. The BenchDog ProMax is a direct fit. Bolts right on to replace the wing. You can drill new holes if you want to bolt onto the side wing itself (will require additional leg support if you extend the table that far.)

          Freight: $44.00

          Package includes two support legs. Legs need to be modified to fit the Ridgid ts3650 - ts3660

            I just made 1 last night. Made from 1-1/2" oak faced plywood (2 pcs 3/4" glued together). Cut ends to fit in the front and rear guide bars. Made the insert out of 3/4" oak faced plywood. Made a fence that fits right over the existing saws fence. This thing is solid as a rock, wish I would have made 1 a long time ago. Made from scrap wood and it exteded my saws working area. Today I will finish sand, stain once dry I will coat with car wax.
            Good luck

                one that only takes bulry picts. Actually a 50mm lens takes great pictures but when I saw this one I was going to retake it but the table saw is in the pole barn and it was raining. LOL

                  nicely executed router table. especially satisfying when you know you made it out of what was lying around. just be careful about the final waxing. car wax contains silicone which can adhere to work pieces that slide over the surface. if the workpiece is to be stained or painted, the silicone can prevent a finish from adhering properly.
                  there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                      To avoid this blurry effect, increase the depth of field by decreasing magnification. Zoom Wide and dolly (walk) the camera closer to the subject to frame the subject accordingly.
