So ... as with all of my projects, things have grown a bit. I am thinking about building this table for my shop. What are your thoughts?
The fence can be brought to the front and use the first six or 8 inches of space to route. The depth of the table is only for larger projects that require routes further from the edges.Crazy is good! Table is huge.:smile: Bigger is better until you can't reach across it. :frown:
Hmmm .... No, I hadn't. However ...Joe, have you considered how you plan to power 5 routers running simultaneously? Interesting idea, but maybe a little bit bent! :wacko:
Where is your sense of adventure?! People used to start airplane engines by hand!There is no way that I would want 5 router heads all turning 20000 rpm at the same time, I have enough to do to keep track of the one!
It will be the one head I wasn't watching that would fling my work across the room, or manages to take a bite out of my hand...
I do hope it works out for you if you do this...
Your only here once .Five of the INCRA Master Lift devices would be awesome. Whew! $2K for them, shipped. UGH. Retirement is expensive!
I use to work in a wood craft warehouse in Utah, back when I lived in Provo. We had 10 router tables all going at once, and no guards or safety devices on the bits, since the wood craft items were all cut out by bandsaw and then hand routed to round off the edges. Just 10 1/4-round bits sticking up in the air with a bearing at the top of each one!There is no way that I would want 5 router heads all turning 20000 rpm at the same time, I have enough to do to keep track of the one!
Joe your ten times the man I'll ever be . I get a sliver and run around the neighbourhood screaming like a little girl :fie:I cannot count the number of times I sliced my thumb pads open on that blade. At first it was traumatic, but after several times, I'd just wash it, pinch it closed, tape it up and go back to work. I think I changed my thumbprints on that job!
