Just joined the post a few days ago after I decided to add a router table to table saw. I haven't done lots of projects that required serious router skills... most have involved just putting a decorative edge on or maybe removing some interior wood. For years my router was a sears "hand-me-down" that was tough to adjust, hard to use and tried to kick itself out of your hands when you turned it on. Three years ago, I received a Bosch 1617 combo kit from my Dad. What a great gift... promptly used it to build a workbench. I didn't have a table saw then... so I used a worm-drive circular saw for the rough cuts and the router to clean them up. I am having fun with it.
Last year, I saved enough pennies to I have add a table saw with a Beisemeyer fence. Awesome. This year the addition will be installing a PC 7518 with a Woodpecker PRL V2 lift on the right side.....That project is what led me here. So I am looking for wisdom and helpful hints as I go about rebuilding the tables surrounding the saw so I can put the router in.
Any advice, photos and bits of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
About me... I am 20 year science teacher in the small town of Wenatchee Washington. Working with wood gives me a nice balance to my high energy days.
