  • adding bench dog router table to TS3660

    Hi, I am thinking about adding a cast iron Bench Dog router table to my Ridgid table saw TS3660. If I put the router wing on the left side of the table, can I use the left saw extension wing and add it to the right extension wing to extend the table? If so do I need to add a leg to help to support it??
    Any suggestions??

    Thanks,

    I don't think that you would necessarily have to add support legs. I added a wood extension to the right side CI wing on my 3612 and didn't need to worry about supporting it. The one area you will have to address though is the bar that keeps the front and rear rails parallel to each other. It wouldn't be a good idea to eliminate that bar so you will need to consider that when mounting the wing.

        There should be a couple of holes drilled into the sides of the wing, one at the front and the other at the back of the wing. You can utilize those holes and a couple of hex head bolts to secure the wing to the rails. Just as the wings are attached to the saws table top you should also attach the LH wing to the end of the RH wing. You will need to drill four holes into the end of the RH wing in order to attach the LH wing. Am I making any sense or am I clear as mud?

          Yep, I can do that. Thanks for the speedy reply.
