Default New to the forum; mobile router center questions

Hello all,

I'm new to the forum, and new to routing. I'm planning on building a mobile routing center that I saw on the American Woodworker web site. (I can't post a URL because I'm new to the forum, but it's easy to search on by googling "mobile router center".)


I have two questions:

1) Has anyone built this? Any suggestions? It seems like it's a good set up for a small shop.

2) (Beginnner question): If I upgrade my router at a later date, how hard will it be to adjust the router table for the new router?

Thanks all. You seem like a great community.

Chris

Hi Chris

It should be easy to adjust it for a new upgrade router.

I have a Ryobi R181FB1. It's a 1 1/2 HP fixed base router that I bought used from a neighbor who is a carpenter. I've done a number of handheld projects (dados, etc); it seems to work well enough, although I need to work slowly and make lots of passes.

I assume I will eventually get a second, more powerful router that I put permanently in the router table, but I am setting up my shop, and thought that building a router table would be a good project, both to help me learn the craft more, and to make more complicated projects accessible to me.

Thanks already, for the quick comments. This is a really amazing forum, and obviously full of smart, compentent folks who are committed to helping one another.

Chris Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode, with the aid of template guides. Check out the material below.
