I really like the looks of that fence and lock down system . Certainly looks sharp, almost too nice to use

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Update on my table. Should have put my progress here instead of elsewhere.
Hope I didn't break any rules by some duplicate images.
Started with a steel framework and added 3/4" plywood, then put on some free to me blue laminate, and inset my lift to the table and added some Kreg tracks. So finally got something serious started.

I went with 3 by 3 angle aluminum for the fence. I wanted a split fence.... made of metal because metal doesn't warp or swell. I don't have a climate controlled carport. 😄
I cut slots in the fence to adjust the split fence.
For the split fence itself, I found two pieces of 1 1/4" square anodized aluminum tubing. I used JB Weld to glue the two pieces of tubing together, one on top of the other...... then cut em in half to make the split fence. The tubing dimensions are extremely accurate, to the fence is very true.

I briefly thought about using the open tubing for dust control but nothing came to mind.
Tom mentioned utilizing the tubes for that purpose, so I gave it a lot more thought.
I came up with cutting some square aluminum tubing and shaping them into 'L' shapes so I could attach some vacuum hose to them. There are two of those 'L' pieces, one for each side of the split fence.
Once inserted into the fence ends, the two hoses connect into a PVC connection so that I can connect to my shop vac.
This suction system only works on the two lower tubes.
Thanks for the push, Tom. It got me motivated.
It works fantastic. Eats dust almost before it gets made. 😄

I am devising a reducer molding for a flooring job I recently completed. Two doorways and a 9 foot span across a kitchen to dining room opening.
I decided that I had to come up with some sort of outfeed table. Router tables are new to me, so all I can envision using it for in short time, will be small items like trim or moldings.
I decided on a narrow outfeed table long enough to support 8' material.
I need everything on this table to be portable, for storage or taken to a job site. This table extension needs to be easily installed and removed. It folds flat when not needed.
So here's my mini-outfeed table. It's more like a ramp. It's just under 7 inches wide. I used two pieces of 1 by 4 pine that I had at the house. I split one board in half, then jointed all edges true using the split fence, and combined the 3 pieces of pine together to make the 7 inch wide outfeed table.
Kind of a fun learning process, something I haven't done before.
The outfeed table needed a leg to stand on. It also needed of course, to be adjustable.
Hope the images show what it is and what it does.
I made. 3/8" or so rabbit joint for the adjustable part of the leg to fit into. The slots would have done just fine on their own without having the support of the rabbit...... but I guess this was a great time to practice using my new toy.

Anyhow, most members have seen my bits and pieces that I have placed randomly, but they make more sense (I hope) when stacked together like this as a project.
Table still doesn't have legs yet..... another day.
For now, it's functional on my table saw table..... sort of.

That table can't possibly work jw. It has to be 5 layers thick of 3/4 inch Baltic Birch or it's going to warp. 😄

strongly suggest you add a foldable leg bracket...



adding a brace is a big plus too..



or go whole hog...


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