Still in gear acquisition mode but had a thought come to mind since I've got a relatively small space.

Is there any reason why nobody's mounted a router under a drill press? You could have a single table/fence system for two tools that spin bits in the same direction. If it's been done, has anyone done this on a table saw wing? Because if so, I could definitely justify splurging on an incra fence that could be used for 3 tools….

You'd need to look at a different method for atatching the table to the DP, most DP's are metalworking and have rather thick base tables which we atatch larger wooden tables to. You'd have to buy mostly 3" bits to be able to cut above the table top. I have seen, ("Somewhere") a bracket that could work, If I have an epiphany and recall, I 'll add a link to it for you to consider, but the other limiting factor to yout idea would be the distance to the column of the DP & thickness of your fence could be a PITA

I have never seen it done, and like ChefHDAN says, I don't see how it could be practically done, and you definitely couldn't do it in a table saw wing, because of the width of wood that you cut with the saw, the drill press column would be in the way.
You could move the fence between tools. It would be a little trouble, but you could do it.
Incra sells all the accessories to make use of their systems on multiple tables.
I love the Incra stuff.
Good luck in building your shop…keep thinking outside the box, and I'm sure that you will come up with some good ideas.
