Default Clever Ideas from Germany

I just stumbled on a Youtube video that shows a number of router table ideas.

I don't understand the language, but I like what he's done!

Pretty cool, thanks for sharing. I have always thought that the European woodworker had more advanced equipment, technique's and safety practices then us.

Great ideas on the video. I placed T trac around my new table in the edges so I can bolt accessories to table edge no need for clamps

Bob,
European BETTER? IMHO wing nuts are not more advanced than plastic knobs
Was that a Fein plunge router (europes best) being raised with a scissors lift? Just different not better

PADUKE, think the router was a festool. IMO Europe has better equipment, example sliding table saws, etc.

Thanks J.D.,
I think everyone will probably pick up tips from the videos. I subscribed to the channel so I could look at all the videos they have.

I think the scissor jack lift mechanism looked interesting, it would be worth a try!

If you google holzwerken.net (translated woodworking.net) and click on videos and go to page 3 and click on the third video "Der beste Frästisch aller Zeiten ?! " (the best router table of all times) you will get a guided tour of that router table
