Simple works as good as fancy does. I'd like to see Norm make something with your outfit! Nice work vegeta.

The only drawback to this type of set up is for those with only one router base. Set up time is significant. This is a real cost saver for those first starting out though.

Good job, vegetta88. I sure would like to have a chunk of that corian for pen turning. How did you come by this slab?
