General International’s Excalibur brand introduced the model 40-070 EK cast-iron router extension table kit for table saws at the AWFS fair in July. The extension measures 16” x 27” with a standard 9-1/4” x 11-3/4” router opening and two adjustable-length steel support legs.
Product manager Patrick Magro says the product was designed for small shops with limited space.
“The highlight of this table kit is the precision and flatness of the cast-iron top and user-friendly features that are required in a router table with the ability to grow and add a lift system,” says Magro.
The extension can be adapted to all table saws with 27” cast-iron tabletops, according to the company. The standard kit includes the 16” x 27” table, two adjustable-length steel support legs, 27” router fence and a phenolic router plate.
Optional accessories include a dust collection kit, a flip stop, a four-piece zero clearance insert ring set, 4-piece insert ring set and vertical and horizontal feather boards.
The kit sells for $399.99
