Completing the $3.00 table
Members may remember that I recently showed a table top router table that I paid the princely sum of $3.00 for at the re-cycling shop. My next task was to find a suitable second hand router, the criteria being:
3........at least 1 1/2HP
4........no taller than 10.5" extended
After a lot of searching, I found a Ryobi ERT241200 in a pawn shop. It worked fine but had been used to rout plaster, which was all over it so the first thing that I did was strip it right down and gave it a thorough clean at which point I removed the single spring. An above table height adjustment seemed the sensible way to go so here is a small photo shoot as it happened.
