Default Veritas Routing Table

Found an almost new Veritas Router table (heavy steel), fence, right-angle sled, hold-downs, and fence stops.

Someone bought it an estate sale, but no longer wanted it.

I waltzed home with it all for $250.00.

Great way to start the weekend.

As often quoted on another forum I am on, no pictures didn't happen.

Still a few more goodies in the trunk.

Whoever originally owned it did a superb job of welding bolts then added heavy rubber mounts underneath. The very slight surface rust will be gone tomorrow.

It sits perfectly on an old B&D workmate so for now, no building necessary to get started.

The Veritas manual is no longer available. If anyone has a digital doc/pdf I'd appreciate a copy. Thanks.

Steve

*Found a digital copy so I'm in business. I'm going to order the Veritas DVD that completely covers the router plate and accessories.

The top is rust free. Spent 15 minutes on the bottom cleaning up the surface rust. 95% of it is gone. The rest can wait until morning for a final cleaning then waxing all over.

Over the years I have bought quite a few Veritas tools. They have all been top notch. I have never regretted buying anything Veritas or Lee Valley.

Cool Find. You have to seek to find.

My wife bought me one of those for Christmas, maybe 20 years ago now. I use it as a bench top model. It could easily outlast my children, never mind me.

It's missing a pivot pin. Any ideas on what might work?

I have the Veritas router jack for one of mine and it does not work at all on the Freud router because it binds when at the ''most plunged'' position. One day I will try an extra long bit in it.

Great find indeed. I never knew Veritas made a router table and this looks like it would survive forever as long as its away from moisture. You pay extra for Veritas but the quality is top shelf. What I call heritage quality and worthy of passing on. I need to start looking for a few quality hand planes and theirs always go to the top of the list, as do the prices. I need to start going to estate sales and find some gems in the rough.....
