Default MFT with integrated router

Been doing some modification on my MFT-Wagon lately. Since Im short of space I was thinking about integrating my router into the MFT somehow. Came up with some ideas

So I went to work!

Placed the Routerlift where I wanted it and lay some scrap pieces of MDF tightly to the routerplate. The MDF pieces has some double sided tape on them.

Drilled 4 holes in the corner and cutout the centerpiece with a HANDSAW!!! :-)

Used the Routerplate as a depth indicator



"Lika a gloooove" (Jim Carrie style) - Perfect fit

Trying it with my INCRA fence

First test routing. No dustextraction since my dad borrowed my CT26 so its kind of a mess.

I will install added dustextraction later on.

Since this MFT also is my assembly table I had to somehow make the INCRA fence easy to install and remove, so I came up with the idea of a mini MFT plate mounted on the INCRA base.
It works really well. Installation is a matter of seconds, Scchweet!

I lock it with my 6 "bench dogs" and for added security I can use nuts and bolts to really clamp it down.

So this is the current status. I added a routerbits drawer for storage.

Take care!

Really nice Matt. There are some well thought out ideas there.

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 don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
