I have a cast iron router table-saw extension wing, that I dont use, as it a PITA to use, always in the way of the T/S.

Sorry about the side way pic.

I was thinking about making one out of MDF approx 685mm x 600mm
The cast iron one is only 685mm X 255mm
My router is a Triton, I have the winder handle kit, a while ago I bought a Incea 7518 router plate.

How would you affix it to the T/S?, the T/S fence brackets are not very long.

I bought angle iron to affix a "countertop" to my table saw (as a wing) and installed my router lift in that.20200207_155316.jpg

I would spin that one 180º so you can stand at the end of the table and not reach tp use it. A fence that drops over the existing table saw fence instead of that one. Plan B is to do a new top in the extension with the Incra pate in it and use the saw's fence. Then take that one and add it to the other end to use when needed. It would add some extra surface to the left of the saw blade. Having two routers in tables is not a bad thing. ;)

If turn the fence around, I have only 125 mm of table area.

Proberly what I will do.

I have seen people put a router table on a workmate. Folds up nicely and stands against the wall. Easy to take router out with plate and all.
