Default Router insert for Bosch 4100-09

This is a semi permanent insert I made for the table. (you need to diassemble to get it out) I am very pleased with the results and as an added bonus the TS table is now a lot more rigid.

The TS is the Bosch 4100-09 and the router is the Bosch MR23 with fixed base with a Bosch router plate but any could be used. It was on sale so that's what I went with. The base stays on the table and everything clears for storage. I am in the proces sof making a fence attachment for the TS fence and adding a T slot bar if there is room.

Neat arrangement, Brad.

I assume you unscrew the router from the base to change cutters?

Brad, nice job on the router table addition. I have that same saw and I am very happy with it, I do have to adjust mt feed rate in harder woods, but I let the saw tell me when to do that. I would be very interested to see the fence you are making , and could you please explain what that attachment on the back of the saw is? In the last picture, there appears to be a bar or a tube running toward the back of the saw, I'm thinking maybe you made an extension table for long cuts? Thank you for sharing.

BE WELL

that is the outfeed extension. It's available from bosch. I also got the left side extension as well. It is a great addition. It won't support a full sheet of 3/4" but it handles a 1/2" sheet fairly well. It is also great for smaller stock. Heres a picture before the the router table went in.

You can actually get to it from the top if you take the rings out of the router plate. It has an adj screw that is accessible from the bottom side. The nice thing about the stand is it's a 2 second job to set it up on the edge to get to the router so you never have to work under the table if you don't want to.

Thank you for the information, Brad. I'm planning on going to the WOODWORKING Show in Sommerset, NJ this weekend, and I think I read that BOSCH is going to be represented there.

BE WELL

Rick, Woodline will be at the show and they carry the Musclechuck. With a 4 mm Ball end T handle Allen wrench that is at least 6" long you can easily change your bits above the table in a set up like Brad has.

As I was assembling my T4B it struck me that it would be good for a router table too.

Well. a little update on my insert. It sagged. I knew it might but I didn't think this fast. The good thing is insert 2.0 is even better. and more refined. I added a t slot track and a supports underneath to prevent sagging. And I also made a jig for cutting out the insert.

The template:

Hi dude!

Insert looks great. I'm wondering if it works with a jessem mast-r-lift II. I just ordered this saw and I have a PC 7518 motor i want to mount to that lift, but don't want to have to build a router table.

Thanks,
