Default MLCS Horizontal Router Table

Hello Gang,

I just received my MLCS table a couple weeks ago. Easy to assemble. Does anyone have experience with this product? I already had an extra router so just attached that. Still working on my technique, but table is easy to use. Just wondered anyone has one also.

Joe, a couple members have that table and others have built their own versions of it. You can not do much better when it comes to making raised panels with vertical bits.

Bobj3,

I see you added a dust collection port to your Horizontal table. What did you use for the port? Thanks

Hi Joe

I just boxed in the bottom and took a hole saw and cut out for 2 1/2" hole for my hose size...works great and no chips on the top at any time,they get sucked right down the hole in the top,that I made just a bit longer to take on the long bits, up to 4" long..

It seems like a good value. Can you get it predrilled for a particular router?

Hi SB

I don't think so, but it's easy to drill and mount your router..

I can't believe they have jumped in price so much, I got mine for 130.oo bucks If I recall that right and it came with 4 bits in error,in a wooden box .

So you may want to just make one like Rusty and Router did...I not sure what he put out but I'm sure it was much less..my guess would be about 40.00 bucks or less..
It's just a box with some 3/8" thick plastic............and a knob or two..you will see a link to his in the same post..

That is a nice setup.
I would like one like that to do mouldings.

Yetiatlarge(Bigfoot) HaHa,

Go to the MLCS website and watch the video. He makes molding with the horizontal router stand. Both Crown & Base molding.

Talking about Both Crown & Base molding I just got a new bit to do just that

http://cgi.ebay.com/1-PC-1-2-SH-2-1-...QQcmdZViewItem


It works great to make molding, the 5" stuff that's not cheap, but now I can make my own quick and easy at about 1/4 price... 3/4" MDF works great for painted base molding...
