Default Milwaukee Router table

Hello everyone, I'm looking to see if there is any plans out there to create a router table for the Milwaukee M18 Fuel handheld router?

If it is cordless, why put it in a router table? I'd get a corded for that.

Hi Max and welcome. Just about any router can be put in a table, the issue is mounting it. I see a few router insert plates lately that are made for trim size routers. The full size plates usually won't work because the center hole is sized for allowing large diameter bits and the base on a trim router is too small to bridge that hole. So that would be your first step is to find a plate to mount it on. I can't recall if Lee Valley has them. I'm pretty sure I have seen them on ebay. Maybe there are other sources. With a trim router you will be limited to fairly small projects.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I guess the reason I'm wanting to put it on a table is just to be able to feed boards through in a relatively easy manner. I'm new to routers and so I'm a bit unsteady and I'm hoping to build some newel posts.

Welcome to the forum.
I am not familiar with that particular router, but newel Posts will require a pretty powerful router in my estimation. A battery pack router might not fill the bill. Also a corded full sized router is more suited for the job, It also depends on what material you are using,and how detailed of routing you have planned.

What they said about power. The Milwaukee is rated as the best of the cordless bunch but all of them are limited to about 1" diameter bits and, depending on what you are doing, making newel posts may require larger bits than that.

By the way, I got a Milwaukee circ saw when I bought my drill and impact set and you need 4 amp hour or larger batteries to run it for any appreciable amount of time. I'm betting the router is no different.
