Default Lee Valley Compact Router Table

Mine just came in yesterday!
I also ordered the bases for my Bosch Colt, and Dewalt 611.
It assembled very easily. Quality materials, as expected.
I think that I will: put a finish on the BB plywood,
incorporate dust collection on the back of the fence.
build a storage box to store the table, allen wrenches, and pivot pin.
Since I only had one DWP611, I had to get another.
How could I not!!!

I already have a setup for both trim routers to drop into a table. This way when doing
DT joints I can set up both bits at the same time and cut away!

I just love options...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Dan won't be needing his Colt any more so he'll ship his w/ the table as a consolation prize...

I put a coat of sealer on all of the bare BB surfaces.

I have 3 Mastercraft trim routers from Meynards that I picked up on sale a few years ago.
I might just have to make some bases to drop in that little jewel for those.

It was Saturday! Really good intentions of progress...
Tomorrow is another day!!

Correction***

They are Performax 1 1/4 HP trim routers, not Mastercraft.

Must have been a senior moment.

Ellery,
You had me scratching my head with the Mastercraft name and the Meynard's.
I own several Mastercraft tools and they are exclusive to Canadian Tire, not top end but OK for hobbyists.

Dan,

I made a mistake. It is the Performax routers that I purchased from Meynards, not Mastercraft.
They were $30. I have not seen them at that price since then. I picked them up because of the price.

I wanted to clarify that to everyone who may have read this post.

My apologies.
