Default The beginnings of a double-header

I had posted a question in "template routing" about using guides to route the opening for my new router station. I just wanted to say thanks again for the help and wanted to post pictures of what I've got done so far.

So here ya go ....

That sure doesn't look like a beginners workshop to me, and that router table, most wives wouldn't object to it be inside the house. Happy routing Thom.

Thanks Harry, the shop may just be a 'tad advanced'

It's just a shame the owner isn't

THANKS!

Love my DeWalts Corey!!! But I also have the big Triton to go in this table, love the triton as well and having a hard time deciding which is gonna be my 'main' router. I'll also have a 3rd setup in the wing of the TS for bearing guided bits and pattern work.

The joinery fence is actually an older Jointech IPM-1

The other two fences are the Craftsman professional fences, I just happened to have these laying around.

Looks absolutely great. Did you find the templates make the router plate fit well? Where did you get the templates?

Nice set up.

Thanks Steve,

I made my own template ... here's the thread when I was having problems ... http://www.routerforums.com/guide-bu...-go-wrong.html

Once I got the bugs worked out, the template made the plate a PERFECT fit.

I really wouldn't pay for a template, they're easy enough to make yourself if you've got some 1/4 or 3/8 scrap layin' around to play with.

I agree, just make sure they are fixed down real well and can't move you won't have any problems. Nothing wrong with buying a template to match a plate though if you want to do it that way, still need to make sure it won't move on you.

Hi Thom2, you may not have read my impressions of the Triton router, if not you can find it here
http://www.routerforums.com/51019-post1.html
Having used it quite a lot since then, my thoughts haven't changed, it is superb for table use, I have NEVER used one that comes even close, but for plunge routing I have to give it a C-.

That's a very nice router table setup!

I like the access from both sides like that...

Thanks for the pictures! First Class!!

Have Fun,
