RIDGID r4514 – Router table insert for table saw and fence extension.

RIDGID r4514 – Router table insert for table saw and fence extension.

Added a router table to my RIDGID r4514. Some scrap wood a $20 router table insert plate, and some shelf pins and I made a fantastic router table attachment. RIDGID’s fence design is great for this application because it incorporates t-track on all sides so it’s very easy to add on an auxiliary fence system with t bolt. (Or in my case bolt that I ground down into t bolts)

materials list:

router table insert – the one I bought off Amazon is no longer available but all the cheap ones look the same except for the paint jobs. (also had to re drill the mounting holes in the one I had)

here a comparable one:

    ok, how to put this?
    I own the same table saw for quite some time and you’ve open a new world for my best "portable table saw" ever!!!
    Even that you took it to the next level, I’ll make it simplest, according to my essentials.
    thank you very much!

    Where did u get that metal plate for router?



  3. Alexander Miller on June 23, 2023 at 1:41 pm

    what are those pins called? what size? thanks!



  4. billybike57 on June 23, 2023 at 1:41 pm

    Nicely done!



  5. David Brewer on June 23, 2023 at 1:42 pm

    I did exactly the same with my Ridgid saw table…logical idea. I don’t understand why Ridgid don’t make an insert which does this…



  6. THE LOUIE BRAND on June 23, 2023 at 1:42 pm

    Very cool!



  7. Gojira61 on June 23, 2023 at 1:42 pm

    Yep. Gonna do this! Good stuff!



  8. Tuka Rachid on June 23, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Jaw drop! Definitely making this!!



  9. Chadz Hairy Nugz on June 23, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Does anyone else always try to blow away the sawdust while watching these woodworking videos 🤣?



  10. MisterBrash on June 23, 2023 at 1:47 pm

    Really great video and explanation. Does anyone have recommendations on which t-bolts to buy for a Ridgid fence? I’m new to this t-slot stuff and have noticed how many sizes or options there are – it’s a bit confusing for a newbie. I purchased the Ridgid ts3650 used and I’m loving it, just wanting to get the bolt situation figured out.

    Sometimes you see things that make you go,..hmmm, interesting. Then there are some things that just make you feel dumb for not seeing a solution right in front of you. This is one of those, fantastic.



  12. Ben Choquette on June 23, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    Great job man I love this! Just picked this saw up today and can’t wait to build a router table in it.



  13. Man O'God on June 23, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    Excellent idea! i like it A LOT!



  14. SorinG2010 on June 23, 2023 at 1:55 pm

    Hi do you have a vid about the fence upgrade to your table saw? Can you please give me the part number for it? Thanks Nice video btw



  15. Austin Holmes on June 23, 2023 at 1:55 pm

    The exact solution I was looking for since I run the same table saw. Thanks for putting this content out there!



  16. Hasan C on June 23, 2023 at 1:56 pm

    Brilliant! Thanks for this very practical and great idea. Perfect timing coming across your video as I’ve been planning on making some sort of setup for my trim router.



  17. J. Duke Manning on June 23, 2023 at 1:56 pm

    Well done. Great solution for a small shop.



  18. xb liu on June 23, 2023 at 1:56 pm

    Smartest idea I’ve seen on YouTube, thank you so much for sharing this, and could you plz tell something about Rigid table saw? I



  19. dennis driscoll sr on June 23, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    This is a genius. Bumped myself on the head that’s a good idea.



  20. Shann W on June 23, 2023 at 1:58 pm

    This is awesome. I must try this for my rigid!!



  21. The Rookie Fisherman on June 23, 2023 at 2:00 pm

    Very nice I have the same table looking forward to following your video to build mine thank you. Does your blade go out of adjustment every time you make some cuts?



  22. Ghassan Dawoud on June 23, 2023 at 2:00 pm

    Great idea. Have the same saw and router and totally going to do this. Thank you for sharing bro.



  23. Portland Two Wheels on June 23, 2023 at 2:01 pm

    I did have a question about this. I don’t exactly want to drill into the table saw but I was thinking…is there a way to make a dado/groove or something so this fits in between? I think I might try your method since I have the same exact table saw. Unsure if I should just screw the 3/4 plywood or mdf together or glue them though.



  24. The Rookie Fisherman on June 23, 2023 at 2:01 pm

    I have a question, this means that every time I need to use the fence I would have to remove the router fence to flip the short fence?



  25. MMFD76 on June 23, 2023 at 2:10 pm

    I’m a little embarrassed I didn’t think of this. I’ll be doing this with my saw and a homemade router lift. Good idea



  26. Ramule56 on June 23, 2023 at 2:11 pm

    Such a clever use of space!! Well done!



  27. Alessandra Vai on June 23, 2023 at 2:11 pm

    I have your same router and bought the same metal plate to make my router table. Unfortunately only 2 holes on my plate match with the router holes🤔 Did you have the same problem? How did you secure your router to the plate? Thanks



  28. BryGTYR StaffordRSE on June 23, 2023 at 2:11 pm

    Pure genius looks like I have my next project



  29. Derek Primeau on June 23, 2023 at 2:12 pm

    Just bought this table saw and I think I am going to use this great idea, but one question does the table saw still fold up for storage with the rotor attachment left in?



  30. Ryan M on June 23, 2023 at 2:14 pm

    Sweet! Recently got the same saw and have been considering doing this so I am just curious… why not extend the saw plate out all the way and make a larger birch router plate to insert?



  31. Dan Goldblatt on June 23, 2023 at 2:18 pm

    How thick is laminated plywood?



  32. Eric Martin on June 23, 2023 at 2:19 pm

    Great idea



  33. The Rookie Fisherman on June 23, 2023 at 2:20 pm

    What bit was the one you use I know that you mentioned it was a 3/8 but which 3/8?



  34. Rennsport911 on June 23, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    Very clever and well documented with no fluff. Really appreciate the effort you put into this!



  35. Richard Kenae on June 23, 2023 at 2:23 pm

    speak up



  36. joe baker on June 23, 2023 at 2:24 pm

    This is genius. 💪 Thanks for the idea. Nothing more needs to be said!!!



  37. 1966johnnywayne on June 23, 2023 at 2:24 pm

    Very nice addition to this table. Too bad Ridgid removed the fence micro adjust thumbscrew from this model and it’s predecessor R4513…fortunately my R4510 is still in great shape.



  38. Eddie Giovanniello on June 23, 2023 at 2:24 pm

    you stole my idea LOL I did the same thing but I did it 10 years ago. I’m glade to see someone can think outside the box. great job



  39. Samuel Eto'o on June 23, 2023 at 2:24 pm

    Just got this exact table saw and will definitely be making this attachment and returning my dads ryobi table 😊



  40. AVCONSULTTX on June 23, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    Spectacular–thanks for the great 4514 add!



  41. StevesFascinations on June 23, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    I just found your video, and LOVE IT! I have the same saw and just ordered the plate after watching your super idea. Thanks for sharing! I am going to subscribe and look at your other videos. Could you make a video on how to make a table saw dado plate for the saw?



  42. Donovan Leeds on June 23, 2023 at 2:27 pm

    I’ve been needing/wanting a router table and this looks like the perfect solution! I don’t have a trim router but this looks sturdy enough to handle my plunge router.



  43. Michael Gross on June 23, 2023 at 2:27 pm

    Clean and concise installation, one of the best designs that i have seen. Great fence too!



  44. Dave Pierce on June 23, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    Creative, simple and extremely functional. This was a timely find for myself as well … I’m picking up the Delta variant of the Ridgid R4560 next month and I wanted to do exactly what you just did in this video. About the only difference between what you did and what I’m going to probably do is have a laminate surface on the addition. Other than that, pretty much on board with your design.
    Thanks much for sharing your design and instructions, it will save me a certain amount of trial and error. Cheers and good luck with your saw and router table.



  45. Joel Webley on June 23, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    Brilliant!



  46. Robbrand Photography on June 23, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    Genius, doing this tomorrow!



  47. thetravdav on June 23, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    dude. you are a GENIUS



  48. Bobby H on June 23, 2023 at 2:29 pm

    I absolutely dig this video. I have the same tablesaw as a stand in for when my delta took a crap on me. I’ll be copying you. Liked and subscribed



  49. Onehappydawg on June 23, 2023 at 2:29 pm

    DUDE!
    I have the same table saw.
    Definitely have to do this. 😎👍



  50. Jeffery Jones on June 23, 2023 at 2:29 pm

    Could you share the source for the $20 router insert? THANKS!
