I kept it simple and bolted an oversized piece of 3/4” mdf using the existing slots in the table and carriage bolts recessed to stay below the table surface. I nipped one corner at a 45 to keep access to the elevation crank. I opened the center with a 1” hole saw to make sure I don’t drill into the original table. When I want to clamp anything, I clamp to the edges of the auxiliary table with QuickClamps or c-clamps. I also made a short fence that clamps to that table.
