    I made a router table insert for my R4513 table saw similar to this one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCH_38GvRl4&t=643s. Would that serve the purpose?

    One thing I could not find anywhere on the internet for the 303N router was the hole spacing. I have the router on order but would like to plan the rest of my table layout. Does anyone have mounting hole dimensions?

    I have used that router quite a lot and highly recommend it. It should handle your needs easily. If you want a stand alone router table, you can buy one or make your own. It can be as simple as you like or as elaborate also. The internet can give you lots of examples.

    Hmm I see, Some of the wood I am working with is 5/8" or 3/4" thick. I might need to go a router with a larger shank diameter to use larger bits. Good call on the quarter inch collet. Ill go to the 1/2" collet tool for this type of integration:

    Hi All,

    I currently own a Ridged Table saw:
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-1...oduct-overview


    and am I'm considering buying a Ridged Router like this one
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-5...4012/100337039

    Does the bracket set that is included with the router allow the attachment to the table saw? I'd like to use the cross bar and flat surface of the table saw to help me line up long wood planks for window and door trim to apply some fancy edges with some router bits.

    If not is there a bracket set I can buy or would you recommend a different combination to accomplish what I'm looking to do with the router?

    Best Regards,
    MicheliDE
Working...
