Adding Miter Track
I have a older CMT Router cabinet modle 999.402.00 it has no miter slot. There is not a lot of room to install one on the front of the cabinet. The top of the cabinet is 1 1/8 thick, I think there is sufficient depth,but am concerened with the width. From the edge of the drop in plate to the outer most edge of the cabinet is 2 inches. The miter will be 3/4 inch wide,leaving me with an 1 1/4 material to work with. Centering the slot within the center of the 1 1/4 inch thats left, gives me 5/8th on each side of the 3/4 miter slot. My question is, is this enough material to cut the miter slot,or should the bottom side be beefed up. The thickness of the top diminishes 3/8th under the slot leaving only 3/4in thickness.
