Default My new toy !!!!!

Spent this morning setting up the ne OP table,

Used one of those cheap fold up work mates as a base.

1. the plate supplied by OP was pre-drilled for the big Triton and fitted perfectly . Thanks OP.

2. total unit is very light an portable and folds up for easy storage.

3. Still able to use above table bit changes.

Also had a few test cuts

So happy, I just had to tell someone.....LOL

I can appreciate your happiness James, simple is so often the way to go. Whilst the fence shown is adequate for many operations, I would suggest that you make a tall one to enable the rest of the operations to be performed more easily and accurately.

Congrats James on your table. I see in the third pic, you have your "fine adjustment" tool handy.

Harry,

I agree on the KISS principle.

It sits about 50mm lower than the old old on and is more comfortable to use. (and I still have all the advantages of the Triton router)

The table is now the first thing I see when I open the shed and will be very easy to carry over to the car port to make sawdust if the weather is not the best.

I still have the aluminum fence for the old table and will make a higher face for that out of 18mm mdf.

Dave,

It works, that is why I use it. If the fence is clamped to the table like this one, it makes perfect adjustments for the normal OP fence and the spacer jigs.

I don't think it would be a good idea if your fence was secured via T track.

Good score James
I have a set of those same benches. Damn good little fold ups for the money IMHO.
I got mine from Harbor freight for around $12.00 each on sale last year I believe.
They are gray and black but the same horses though for sure.

Duane,

If you go back through the forums,last year, (I think) there was quite a long discussion regarding the B & D Workmates and the copies.

I still have 2 in the box ready for an opportunity like this .

Yup I remember reading that. That's what Prompted me to buy the cheaper versions from Harbor Freight actually.

What's it like to be wealthy James?

Regarding fence mounting methods, I firmly believe that popping a couple of Tee nuts beneath the top is superior to clamps.
