Unless floor space is an issue, I think that I would just leave the little table saw on its current stand and make a separate router table. Look around at some of the various portable router table designs. You can easily make (or buy) one that attaches to or sits on your work bench for example. They don’t have to be a stand alone design. I’ve used one for years that is not much more than a piece of 3/4” plywood with a hole drilled through it for the bit and a recess routed in the bottom for the mounting the router that I simply clamp to a corner of my bench. When it is not in use, just lean it against a wall or the the workbench. There are many other more ingenious designs out there.

Thanks Lazyman.

I think I’ll do that for now, and after some use see how that works for me.

Just bought this Grizzly Router table. http://www.grizzly.com/products/Router-Table-with-Stand/T10432?utm_campaign=zPage. Very pleased; add some wheels and your good to go. Couldn’t believe how thick (strong) the table top is. At $119.00 + shipping. It’s hard to beat.
