Those are templates that slide into the Incra LS Positioner fence system. A book has many patterns for through and blind dovetails, double dovetails and box joints. After selecting the appropriate pattern you use the corresponding template. That drawer houses a laminated block of PVC that I routed slots into so I can store and organize the templates ordered numerically. It works awesome, I must say. I got the idea from someone else and tweaked the design a little. I absolutely L O V E the Incra! |
Looks like I'm not allowed to post the url. haha.

Great job on your router table build Todd , and thanks for sharing |

Slow start may not be a big deal in a table, but for hand mount it's nice. |
Also, it's cool.

I lucked out at my local flea market and found a non-working PC 895pk for $80.00 as opposed to the $540.00 retail price or $245.00 on Amazon. Turns out the plunge base had never been out of the case and the router was like New except it would not start. I posed a question in this forum and the response was a diagram on how to wire around the slow start function. I did just that and installed the router in my table with a remote speed controller. I have it mounted in a Woodpecker table with a Woodpecker super fence and the Woodpecker aluminum plate and as such it is not unlike a high dollar lift in functionality. In my opinion the slow start function is figment of somebody's imagination to begin with because the router is up to full speed in a fraction of a second. |
To top it all off I sold the plunge base for $100.00

As often as not, its all about doing your homework. It seems that it is more often a matter of the "product" not fitting the "purpose" rather than product failure. My rule of thumb has always been, overbuild. I don't believe in working something to death or pushing its limits all the time. I have a 12" bandsaw sitting in my shop right now that will attest to just how well pushing the limits works. I don't know that a big PC, Bosch or Triton would work as well as our Milwaukee's, but thats just it, I dont know. They are all outstanding products. So many choices, so little time |
As our skills and projects evolve, quite often the demands on our equipment evolve with them. Ya just gotta go with the flow or make due one way or another. I'm always looking at what our members come up with to meet a given challenge. Doesn't matter if its equipment or techniques or design concepts. Take your template drawer for example. To me, thats just an exceptional idea. Brilliantly designed, beautifully executed and fully functional. Its all there in one package. Very cool stuff if you ask me. Some prefer form over function, others function over form. I like it when one compliments the other.
