Default Guide Rack

Just a brass template/guide rack, I just added some more to the collection and needed a bigger rack..

It can be used as a wall rack or a work bench rack..it's going on the wall in the shop ..

This one was made from a old work bench top I had in the shop, 1 1/8" thick MDF..stock

Nice Bob. I would have settled for an old piece of MDF or particle board Are you missing any guide bushes or are there still a few you don't have?

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Hi nzgeordie

MDF ,me too but it needs to be 1 1/8" thick because of the threads on the guides and all I had was some 3/4" stuff,, I still need 6 more guides ,they are the long ones for sign templates ( about 1" long) but other than that I have it covered for now I think ..

Thanks Corey

Can't have to many guides,I'm always removing some of the brass to make them fit the templates..

Yup, I agree with Dave, in fact, why not have one complete set per router.....that's the ticket....

Nice job BJ! One question, all the space is used, so where are you going to put the metric guides?
