This saw is similar to the Sears I used to have I wouldn't move it more than for a 36" rip to the right of the blade that covers all the rips & cuts usually needed to include base cabinet ends. Anything longer you can flip & cut with the narrow side against the fence with your project part on the left of the blade. You still need to properly tie in & support the left wing. I made all sorts of cabinets as did my Dad for over 30 years in his commercial shop with a saw set up this way. If you have a commercially made 50" fence system you would still be supporting your left wing but your running some chances with only the bolts that hold the wing to the main table supporting it you could break the casting on the wing or the main table. The fence system & table & wing system are meant to be integral to each other.(supporting each other) With the support on the left side you could also mount the router table there & be able to stand along side the end to run it.
I see you do have your router table on the right side of the saw.
I look at a router table & my position when using it the same as if I were standing at a shaper or even a jointer where I stand along side. There is a reason these tools were made to be operated this way control & safety where you can easily use both hands for better control. I plainly don't like to reach from the in-feed side of a table saw reaching forward with my right hand & trying to assist with the left. If I have to have the router table on the right side of the saw I would put the router fence between the saw blade & router bit & feed it from the end of the table. Is that a Sears router-table? How do you like the ribbed aluminum table does it trap chips on the top?
Here is a pic of my TS cabinet.
In the 2nd pic you'll note 2 webbed wings on the right side & a brown topped router table on the left.
I see you have the table mounted with the miter slot to the outside So you could use it feeding the material from the back of the saw & standing at the right end of the saw. This way you don't need the rails out so far to the right either & the left saw wing will be properly supported & you may not even need those extra legs. This would also give you a more compact foot print to the saw.
