I'd agree with Jay, don't go less than 36".
Bill why don't you just scoot it to the left & re-drill it & thread it.That is what I did with my fence. My old Unisaw is right tilt & I wanted to cut bevels on the left side of the blade. I have 40" to the right & 24" to the left.
This would keep you from cutting the tube if you ever decided you wanted the 52" capacity back again. PM me & I'll tell you how I did it.
You could put your router table on either side this way if your planning to use the table-saw fence in combination with an add on fence for the router table.
I have done this in the past on my contractors saw. BUT...
I don't like using the table-saw fence this way because you can still do a limited amount of cutting or ripping with the table-saw fence if you have a stand alone router fence.
