Topic tags/keywords: bench dog tools 40-102 dwe7491 dwe7491rs dewalt

Does anyone know if adding a Bench Dog Tools 40-102 to a Dewalt DWE7491RS would be possible? I’m planning on removing the rolling stand from my Dewalt table saw and building a mobile stand for it, but I’d also like to incorporate a router table into the table saw and I’ve only seen a few videos online that accomplish this with a small footprint.

The Bench Dog Tools 40-102 router extension looks perfect, but I can’t seem to find any examples of people using this for that table saw.

Thanks!

Not sure, but I have never used ready made plates and such for my two router tables. Make my own custom fit.

For a lift I used a lab lift.

I looked up the table saw on Dewalt’s website, and the table dimensions are not sufficient to support the BD extension. The BD extension is designed for 27” deep cast iron tables. It looks like the dewalt has a weaker, cast aluminum table (for weight reduction necessary in that type of saw). The extension is very heavy, and 16” wide, so it puts a lot of leverage on the edge of the table to which it it is bolted. Because of the extension depth (27”) it will not fit between the fence rails on the right, and I’m not sure it would fit on the left end because the stand would not clear the router suspended from the extension. If you have transferred the saw to a custom cabinet, and forgone the existing saw stand, it might work, but you would need to provide additional support from the cabinet to the extension.

By any chance has anyone built a router table extension for this table saw? I’ve been scouring the internet for a while now trying to find plans for a table saw stand / router table wing for the DWE7491, but I can only find one design which I’m not a fan of.

I want to ditch the rolling stand and build my own stand with a router table inside the table saw wing. I want to keep it as small as possible due to space limitations so I’m trying to avoid a large table.

Have your say...
