Let me start by saying Hi to everyone and then quickly move into my question heheh. I've got a Bosch 4100 jobsite tablesaw that has geven me much happy use. I've been wanting to attach a router table to the side of it but haven't found any luck for tables for jobsite saws. Has anyone attempted to attach a router table to this or any other jobsite saw? Thanks

Some people willl attach router bases to the contractor saws with the iron tops because the iron can withstand the weight and the table usually is not moved that much. On the model that you are speaking of, it would probably not be recommended as the table is more lightweight and the model of saw is designed for portability. You would be better off building a mobile router table that could be pushed against a wing of the table, with the height level to the saw, if you are seeking to use the wing as an extension to your router space.

hi goose. welcome to Lumberjocks!

I had the 4100, and was planning to do what you're trying to do. however, I ended up ditching the idea for the limitations it held.

I was planing on extending the table on the right to the max, and create a custom top that will fill the gap between the table and extension wing. then install a router plate into that. I felt that the TS was too light to be able to handle a router table extension on the left side of the table. and eventually, I felt that If I kept the extension wing open I'd have some limitations with ripping narrower stock, so I ditched the idea, and just went for a stand alone router table on 2 work horses until I could build a dedicated router table with storage and all (which is what I'm doing right now - 2+ years later).

bottom line - it's doable, but the question is - would it be good enough, convenient, and useful for you?
