BASIC FUNCTIONS
The Excalibur by General International model 40-070EK Cast-Iron Router Extension Kit for Table Saws is designed
to provide you with the full features and functionality of a stand-alone shop router table along with space-saving
convenience and easy bolt-on installation directly to the end of your existing table saw.
The 40-070EK is designed to either be fit onto the end of, or to replace one of the existing cast-iron extension wings
on your table saw. Though 40-070 cast-iron table measures 27” the unit can also be installed centered on table
saws with 28” or 29” tables with only a slight protrusion of the saw table beyond each end. To facilitate such installations, a self adhesive center-marked drilling template is included to allow you to locate and mark the mounting
holes that may need to be drilled into your saw table or extension wing.
Deciding whether to install the wing to the left or right of the saw is entirely a matter of personal preference, and
will be determined by your own shop space considerations as well as the configuration, type, and model of saw
you are installing it on. Whichever side you choose, here are a few factors to consider before installing:
1. Some cabinet saws have motor cover doors that extend underneath beyond the main table, this may prevent
the router from being hung from that side of the saw, or may require lifting the router out of the table to allow
opening the motor cover door.
2. The distance between the 40-070EK support legs and the cabinet door should also be verified to ensure adequate clearance for the door.
3. Table saw rip fence rails that go beyond the width of the table saw may cause obstructions at one or both
ends, preventing installation of the router fence rails. Depending on your specific saw, the fence rails may need
to be repositioned or shortened, or you may be obliged to install the 40-070EK on one specific end of the saw.
4. At least 3 of the pre-drilled mounting holes in the 40-070 should be used to secure it to the saw table. One near
the front, middle, and rear. If mounting to the main table of your saw, drilling mounting holes into the lip of your
saw table may not be required. However if mounting to the end of the saw’s extension wing, mounting holes
will be required and an appropriate sized drill bit and mounting hardware are included.

CLEANING
CLEANING THE CAST-IRON TABLE
The protective coating on the cast-iron table, prevents rust from forming during shipping and storage.
Remove it by rubbing with a rag dipped in kerosene,
mineral spirits or paint thinner. (Dispose of potentially
flammable solventsoaked rags according to manufacturer’s safety recommendations). A putty knife, held flat
to avoid scratching the surface, may also be used to
scrape off the coating followed by clean-up with solvent. To prevent rust, apply a light coating of paste wax
or use regular applications of any after-market surface
protectant or rust inhibitor.
TIP: WITH A SCREW DRIVER, PUSH A SOLVENT-SATURATED RAG INTO THE
T-SLOTS TO REMOVE THE GREASE.

INSTALLING A ROUTER
SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY COULD OCCUR IF YOU CONNECT THE MACHINE TO THE POWER SOURCE BEFORE YOU
HAVE COMPLETED THE INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY STEPS. DO NOT CONNECT THE MACHINE TO THE POWER SOURCE
UNTIL INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.
1. Make sure the router is off and disconnected from
the power source. and install a 1/2 inch straight
router bit into the routers collet,
2. Position the router on the underside of the plate
with the router bit inserted through the hole in the
insert ring, this will “centre the router”.
3. Scribe around the base of the router, locating
where you will need to position the plastic base
of your router to transfer your mounting hole locations to the plate.
Note: You may need to position the router’s handles
so that they will pass though the hole in the table
top. Make a reference mark on the plate and the
plastic base of your router to help relocate this position later in the installation.
15
4. Unscrew the plastic base as shown.
5. Remove the plastic base from your router.
TIP: IF NECESSARY, RE-DRILL MOUNTING HOLES IN THE ROUTER BASE AND USE LONGER STRONGER FASTENERS (WE SUGGEST A
FINE THREADAND NYLOCK NUTS) TO SECURE THE ROUTER TO THE INSERT PLATE.
7. Align the router base with the reference mark to
the drawing on your insert plate, and transfer the
router mounting hole locations to the insert plate.
8. Drill holes as shown.
DO NOT MOUNT ROUTER UNLESS YOU ARE SURE IT IS SAFE TO USE. MAKE SURE THE ROUTER WILL NOT COME LOOSE
FROM THE ROUTER PLATE.

screws B in the table opening as needed to level
the plate on all four sides.
2. With the router plate leveled to the table, lock the
plate in place using the two supplied hex socket
head screws C in the threaded holes on both sides
of the plate.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
USING THE SPACER BARS FOR JOINTING
A
B
1. Jointing the edge of a board involves using a
straight cutting router bit to remove material from
the edge face of a board. The result is a perfectly
flat and square edge.
2. Two spacer bars A are supplied with the fence
system to facilitate jointing, by offsetting the outfeed fence B to the infeed fence and providing a
straight path for the workpiece to follow as it is machined, fully supported at its start and end.
1,5 mm
0,7 mm
Note: Both spacer bars should be used in the top and bottom t-slots in the fence body as shown. Take
care to install them in matching offset positions;
both at 0.7mm or both at 1.5mm.
3. Each spacer bar has two sides which allow you
to offset the outfeed fence by either 0.7 mm or 1.5
mm staggering.
Note: When not in use, the spacer bars can be
stored on the t-track on the back of the fence body
as shown.
JOINTING
A
B
1. Loosen but do not remove the outfeed fence face and install the spacer bars between the outfeed fence and
the fence body. With the router unplugged and the safety switch in the off position, follow the instructions supplied with your router and install a straight cutting bit in the router.
2. Adjust the height of the lift to raise or lower the bit as need until the bit is slightly higher than the workpiece.
3. Loosen the fence locking knobs, and using a straightedge, position the outfeed fence aligned flush with the
bit, A. Rotate the bit by hand to validate alignment with the “highest” point of the cutting edge on the bit, then
tighten the knobs to lock the fence in position.
4. Adjust the height of the safety shield to make sure it clears the bit and the workpiece slightly.
5. If needed, loosen the lock knobs on the back of the fence and adjust the faces to adjust the gap between the
fence faces and the bit leaving a clearance of roughly 1/4” between the bit and each fence face, B. Plug in
and turn on the router and make a test cut on a waste sample before jointing your “good” workpieces.

GROOVE CUTTING
Note: Beading is commonly defined as cutting a
groove or bead in the face of a board.
1. If installed, remove the spacer bars on the outfeed
fence.
2. With the router unplugged and the safety switch in the
off position, follow the instructions supplied with your
router and install a cutting bit in the router.
A
3. Raise or lower the router bit to the desired height.
4. Loosen the knobs and adjust the opening between
the fences to allow the bit to clear the edge of bothfences.
5. Adjust the main fence until the center of the bit has reached the desired distance, A.
6. Align the infeed and outfeed fences parallel to eachother using a machinist square or a straightedge..
PROFILE CUTTING
Profile cutting is usually performed using a bit with a guide
bearing. The guide bearing controls the depth of cut into
the edge face of a board. A good example would be a
chamfer bit A. The bearing rides along the uncut edge of
the board while the cutter removes the wood.
1. Follow steps 1 and 2 from previous section “ Groove
Cutting ”.
2. Adjust the fence back and away from the bit only
enough to allow the guide bearing to control the
depth of cut or use the starting pin as a support for the
work piece, as shown B.
A
B
3. Adjust the fence as close as possible to the bearing.
The fence will serve as a backup support, reducing
the chance of an accident.
