Any more insight besides what the others have left here would be great.

Thanks

Photos?

dugg,

I'm interested in seeing the photos of your drop in router table design. I have the Bosch 4011 and am looking at the different designs out there.

Any more insight besides what the others have left here would be great.

Thanks

So far, it works just fine, and quite stable...and it does not interfere with the operation of the saw [assuming that you don't extend the right half of the saw table beyond the "closed" position].

Pictures are worth allot of words, so the big question for the day is....being new, can I upload jpegs, or do I have to wait until my 10 comments have been filled??

Thankx, dugg
Looking forward to your pictures.

As far as posting pictures, you need to have 10 posts. You can get them pretty quickly by introducing yourself in the appropriate forum and saying hello to other new users... Or if you happen to have questions, ask them as well.

Hi! First reply for me, and it's about adding a router table to my Bosch 4100.

Thanks for the compliment.

I actually dont have anything sticking up above the table. I used thin metal strips screwed to the ends of the insert that run horizontally. There's about a 1/8th" gap between the fence ends and the table itself, so it can pass over the metal without issue. The downside is, it's not the strongest, and can flex if you're not careful. That's why I like the crossbar supports you use. At some point I'm going to go back in and use them like you did. I've got one spot where it's not quite flush, and I want it perfect. I cut a wide dado with it yesterday, and one side was a little deeper than the other.

almost there wondering how the tires will do with the extra weight. I had considered doing something like what you've done and then use ts surface for an incra ls -25" positioner, but now leaning toward a gadget to do box joints and dove tails with one of my hand held routers.

The hanging design will probably be great for doing more frequent work on the router table, but so far the wooden supports which I have inserted into the rails seems to be sturdy enough for me. My goal was really to make the surface as flat as possible, so I was really trying to keep everything below the table.
