I am thinking about making a horizontal router table..anybody ever try one. I have an idea, but would like some plans if you have any. Thinking about using a screw lift to adjust it..

Hi Hickory
Here are just two of them

Rusty just made one but I don't know if he had any plans to go by ,I don't think you need any to speak about just fly by the seat of your pants thing.
http://www.routerforums.com/show-n-t...ter-table.html

I also just got one it's was made by MLCS or to say sold by them and made over the pond tool,if you need any help just ask and I will get the ruler out.
Also if you want the part numbers just ask in that way you could just order the parts you need and then you could pickup the wood.
http://www.routerforums.com/show-n-t...4-new-toy.html

Just a note*** now that I have one it would be easy to make, the hard part are the uprights (two ea.) but if you use some 1 1/2" x 18" oak with a dado slots + a rabbit or two you would have it done,the 3/8" thick plastic base plate you get from any Ace Hardware and most of the others parts as well,rod coupling nuts,t-slot bolts,knobs,threaded brass insert,threaded rod,lock nuts,etc.

Here's a link, this will show a snapshot of what it looks like when I got it in a box, note it didn't come with a dust vac. port or a power outlet/switch so I added the items that I wanted and need plus a bigger hole in the top for longer bits. (molding bits)

Rusty did a great job making his, i also like the MLCS you have BoB. I live in Canada so i dont think thats available to buy here.
If i Do make one,hwta confuses me is where the router plate fit into. It looks like on the MLCS model it either slides in a metal track or it just fits into it flush, and then the knobs hold it in place.

I was thinking about making a track out of wood for it to slide into. I should have all the material here.

thanks for the help

Hickory

Flush is the key and the knobs with a hex bolt slide in a t-slot,but a stantard t-slot would work just fine for this job,I use a key hole bit when I put in a t-slot and it works great for this type of job.
I am a cheap SOB so I don't buy t-slot bolts I take a 5/16" x 3" toggle bolt and grind the head on two sides then cut it down to the size I need in this way it only will cost me .10 cents for a t-slot bolt then I make my own knobs out of scrap hard wood.

Just a NOTE *** the top is 1/16" short at the point where the plastic runs up and down, so it can move free but the two ears on the back are sq.with the top.
If you want a snapshot just ask and I will post one or two.
