Thanks to the clever folks at Bench Dog Tools, woodworkers everywhere can now enjoy the speed and precision of stationary routing without having to buy or build a router table. The 40-031 ProMax Router Table Extension bolts directly to the edge of most 10-inch table saws, thus providing a flat, rock-solid platform for mounting a router.
The roomy cast-iron extension measures 16 inches wide by 27 inches long, and comes with a durable phenolic insert plate for mounting the router, and a smooth-sliding fence. The table has an adjustable miter gauge T-slot and an accessory slot that accepts featherboards and other accessories. The fence has adjustable sub-fences, a dust-collection port for attaching a vacuum hose, and two integral jointer settings (1/32 inch and 1/16 inch) for jointing board edges perfectly straight. When not in use, the fence can be removed and hung on two hooks beneath the extension table, or left in place and used when cutting on the table saw. -- Joseph Truini
What's in the Box
The 40-031 router table extension comes with a full-feature fence, pre-drilled insert plate, and all necessary mounting hardware.
You can have all the award winning features of ProTop router tables on your table saw. With the exclusive mounting system, installation is clean and professional. Includes a phenolic ProPlate, mounting brackets, and fence. The fence comes with a dual position bit guard, quick adjust sliding subfences, front and back t-slots, built-in dust collection, and built-in jointing settings of 1/32 and 1/16 inch. The fence accepts the optional FR400/100 fence riser attachment. The dust port fits all standard 2-1/2-inch shop vac hoses. The RT250 fits most contractor and cabinet style table saws with "t-square" style fences, as well as most late model Sears and Rigid table saws equipped with front and back aluminum rails. Older saws, and saws equipped with Vega or Delta Unifences, will require additional hardware you buy on your own or that is available in the UM250 kit. Individual components are not sold separately. Made in the USA.
The main problem for me and my Grizzly cabinet saw was the mounting holes didn't line up and I had to build an adapter. Read morePublished on June 20, 2012 by SoCalWoodworker

I have owned it 6 months. Great for the price and what it is and does. Don't expect miracles but is saves shop space and is a quality item.
I added the Bench Dog ProMax cast iron router table extension to my 30-year old Rockwell Unisaw. I spaced it to the left of a new Delta cast iron saw table extension. Read morePublished on December 24, 2008 by Grego
I bought this when I replaced my 35 year old table saw with a Jet JPS10 Hybrid (both from Amazon). The installation was very easy, 3 bolts on the side of the table. Read morePublished on September 19, 2008 by C. PAULUS
This is obviously not a review, rather a question. Does anyone know if this compatible with a left tilt saw? I have emailed Bench Dog for the last 6 months but no response.Published on September 12, 2008 by Tbone
Exceptionally well made, clear instructions as to how to install. Configured for most table saws with a 4 or 3 hole install on a 27" table edge. Read morePublished on July 26, 2008 by Graeme J. W. Smith
I agonized for months over the price, and finally did it. All the way.
