I installed this on my SawStop Contractor saw with jobsite cart. I already had the SawStop cast iron table extensions. The depth of the Bench Dog matches the SawStop table exactly.
The holes in the Bench Dog align close enough with the SawStop that I didn't need to drill or file. I needed to drill additional holes in the front and rear of the Bench Dog to bolt the saw fence and rear fence guide. It took some additional time but was not a problem.
I left the SawStop extensions in place and added the Bench Dog to the right extension. Removing the left extension to mount the Bench Dog would required me to figure out how to remount the saw switch. Removing the right extension might have worked, but the clearances with the saw angle wheel were a bit close. The job site cart extends to the right of the saw, so mounting the router table to the right doesn't require additional floor space. The router table + lift + router is rather heavy and needs additional support to keep from sagging. I used gas springs bolted to the jobsite cart to add ~70lbs of upward force.
The leveling screws + plate lockdown made it easy to get the router plate exactly flush with the table top. The router fence is much better than anything I've used.
So far, I'm happy with the setup: I have a huge, flat workspace for the saw and a nice router table that is portable and does not take up more floor space than the saw/stand alone. It is nice to be able to move both out of the "shop" =garage in good weather. Avoids dust indoors and it's a lot more pleasant to work outside.

This table lives up to the great reviews you'll find here. It has great finish, plenty of mounting hardware, the Rockler router lift fits the table opening perfectly, etc. However, I would point out two areas that you might want to consider before you purchase: 1 The mounting holes that are present do not line up with the older Craftsman 113.27520 10" saw table holes, and considerable elongation of the Bench Dog holes is required to bolt it up. I used a rat-tail file and a pot of coffee, and it took about 45 minutes. 2 Bench Dog did not put in mounting holes for a dust collector under the table. I bought a Rockler Dust Bucket, and I had to drill and tap holes in the cast frame web under the table opening to attach a plywood pad for mounting the Dust Bucket, which took another 45 minutes of carefully-aligned drilling and tapping. Neither of these issues takes away from the quality of the product, but I think prospective buyers might want to be advised about them before deciding to purchase. The fence is excellent.

I agree with all positive feedback for this great addition to a small or large shop. Space is an absolute premium in my garage shop. My roll around setup causes me to move each piece of equipment to the center for use. This space saver also added a great deal of functionality to my table saw by adding an extra miter slot. My original table saw wings were stamped steel, and this was an improvement all by itself. Installation was easy, and took me only a couple of hours to get it on, and my table saw fence back into adjustment. I did not purchase a router lift, as funding ran out on this expenditure. Although, it is certainly on my wish list.
If I ever update my Jet contractors saw, I will put this router setup on anything I purchase, including a cabinet saw.
The cast iron top, and rigid fence setup has greatly increased my accuracy in my projects. I hate sanding, and this has significantly reduced my work in this regard. I definitely recommend purchasing a remote switch, as this adds to both convenience and safety.

I mounted this on my saw and what's great is that I was able to remove my existing cast iron left end section and install it on the right side of the saw, and then installed this cast iron router table to the left side. This gave me a very large full cast iron work surface for my table saw, and saved me a lot of space in my garage . I also purchased the very nice Bench Dog nickel plated router plate and the bullet proof Bench Dog pro router lift along with that very powerful Porter Cable router. I think this stuff will last me forever, since I'm not a professional and don't use this set up daily (or even monthly-sadly, woodworking seems to be a retired persons hobby-not enough time avaliable). I did manage to mount this pretty heavy extension by myself, but I had to use the excellent Rockler heavy duty support stand to hold it in place while I leveled it and bolted it up. I needed to use little pieces of tape between the main table and the extension along with a reference straight edge to get the extension to be absolutely flat. I also remember having to enlarge at least one of the holes to get the table to align with existing holes. Not too big of a deal, but perhaps slots would have been a better idea. Yes, this set up is very pricey, but It's very accurate, and I won't need to upgrade this system ever. I'm a big believer in purchasing the best that you can afford so that you don't have to buy it again later.

I installed this on my 25 year old Delta contractor saw without assistance in about an hour. Everything lined up perfectly, all necessary hardware for a variety of applications was included. I ordered this with the basic plate, but later decided to go ahead and spring for the pro-lift, glad I did, that's another amazing piece of equipment.

I have just finished installing this table to my Delta contractor saw. I have a small shop and was looking for a setup that would give me the table space, but not take up any more floor space. The fit and finish of this product is second to none. The installation was simple, although I had to buy some hardware, being that I added the router table to the already existing cast Iron wing on the right side of the saw. The router plat has eight leveling screws, and being that you can reverse the fence to make use of the entire table saw's table is just an added benefit.

I was able to install this on my old Sears Contractor saw in about an hour with no assistance. Fit and finish are excellent. I have a small shop and also need to move the saw to rehab sites; it's a perfect addition. Most of my router usage is to reproduce old moldings and create one of a kind trim for older houses. It is great to have the router table mounted and on-site with me. The saw is a bit heavier but still manageable. Definitely a good investment.
