Default The more I use my new router table ...

the more I like it. It is so much easier to use a bigger table with a lift! It was somewhat expensive, but worth it.

Bryan, they are not that expensive!

You can build your own fairly easily. Another alternative is to look for a used one. I got an older RT1000 with a fairly new Hitachi M12 for around $150. This was basically buying the router and getting the table free. It is not my favorite set-up but it does everything I ask it to do.

You can do more then you think with just a top and a fence bolted to a workbench, or across a couple of saw horses.

Get busy, my friend.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget.

Bill,

I do have some space issues and have a lot of other projects going right now.

I do think however that if I had a roll around table I could make it work but just not yet. I had originally thought that I'd make an insert for my table saw and picked up so corian for the top to make a Stumpy Nub drop in with a screw lift and even went so far as to cut up the plywood for the lift but the more I read on this forum the less inclined I was to follow through with it. I did keep the pieces and my eventually put it together as just a portable unit instead.

Recently, I've built a couple of table saw cross cut sleds that once I get my camera back from my daughter I'd like to post some pictures of here.

Also, I do occasionally check Craigs List for what's out there for router tables and if one came up that I thought would work for me I'd buy it. I'll get one eventually, I'd love to have one. I could have use one on this sled project when I was trying to cut out slotted holes for my Stops but I end up using a couple of drilled holes and jig saw cuts in between them. Not as clean and a lot of filing out but it worked. A little bit more finesse involved with not nearly as nice of a finish but still ok.

Thanks for the tip Bill, I appreciate it.

Bryan

@bryansong

I know that there are several disadvantages to using the tablesaw. However, if you are limited on space and have the parts/materials already, go for it. Although a little aggravating, you would have a working router table. When time, space, and finances improve then you can build a stand alone table and free up the tablesaw.

Bryan, you can get some awesome buys on cameras on ebay, I buy the old cannon power shots for from $10-$20, and have 6 of them, one in every vehicle couple in the house and one in the shop. They are great picture takers and cheap.

Thanks Herb, I'll look at ebay. I'm not familiar with Cannon Power Shots.
My wife sent our camera to the daughters house to get some grandkid pictures. That camera is so easy and takes such good pictures that my daughter borrows it often.
I did mention it to her today so I expect to see it back soon.
