I had to drill new holes for this router table extension to attach to my General table saw. It's sitting just a sixteenth proud of the table surface. I'll mess with it later as it's not really a deal breaker at this point. I mounted it on the left hand side of the saw rather than on the right. My Craftex overarm dust collector quickly attaches to the dust port on the router fence. All in all I think this is a pretty nice space saving addition to my shop.
I just installed this on my older Delta contractor saw. I've been hankering for a cast iron extension for the saw for some time, and having the router in it is a real space saver, not to mention giving me a huge router table. Like one of the other reviewers, I found that the bolt holes cause the extension to sit a bit high. A few minutes with a file to adjust the bolt holes fixed that no problem. The extension is nicely finished and looks to be dead flat, and it matches seamlessly with my saw table. Mounting my Ryobi 600RE under the extension was easy. The fence is also nicely finished, solid, and easy to adjust.
This mounted perfectly to my saw and has turned out to be a real space saver. I looked at numerous router tables before deciding to purchase this but I didnt have the room for a dedicated table. Well, I didnt want to make the room and this turned out to be ideal. Fit and finsih on the aluminum are good quality and the adjustments are easy. It adapted well with my big DeWalt plunge or my Tirton. I also like the stability as the leg is strong and I ahve not had to worry about sagging or the table moving when Im in the middle of a job.
I received my order of the 200R Router Table for the table saw and was very disappointed.
( 1 ) Mounting my Porter Cable router was a problem, the mounting brackets would not fit my 1/4 " base, I had to make shims. instructions were useless.
( 2 ) Holes did not line up with my General table saw, with all 3 bolted, the router table was 1/16 " above the saw, with the center bolt only in, it would sit flush.
( 3 ) There were two inserts that came with the table , one large hole , one small hole, I had to sand the small one to get it to fit.
( 4 ) Table guide pin does not fit.
( 5 ) Fence works well, with the exception of the dust collection port,it does not fit any hose I have ( or anyone's for that matter.)
In short I was not too impressed. The table is sturdy , the fence works well, but I can only give it 2 stars.
