Hi guys,
I've been out of workwooding for a while due to other priorities. Had a nice shop and gave it all to my son-in-law since he had an interest. So now I'm back, with more interest and more $ to spend, but mostly an empty shop :-(

After getting a Rigid 3650 (for price) and making some jigs, I decided to do so small work, so on a whim I picked up a Bosch Colt palm router (1hp). Although a bit weak, it's a fun router to use for small jobs. Although I've built a couple different router tables over the years, I thought I'd try out a new idea (to me anyway) for an overhead router sled/jig/fence.

See my post, as I'm having some problems designing it.
Thanks and cheers,
Randy

Hi Randy

Below you will see a link below to one that's not a Pin Router but it's a nice clean router table design , just my 2 cents=most pin routers don't work very well for general routing needs :) it's nice to have a pin router on hand BUT :(

The PDF file below has the swing fence that's nice setup for any router table.
The only thing I would add to the design is a insert base plate for the router so you can pull it from the top and change the bits or work on the router.:)

Oak_Park sells many base plates that you can use in the top.
Or the plates below.
NOTE*****all the Oak-Park base plates are taged with "Currently unavailable" on the Amazon web site but I'm sure you can get them from Oak-Park Sales.

I used the same tactic, but did not give it ALL away! When my wife asked recently why I bought a new router ...

"Oh, gave the old one to Nate" (our new son-in-law). Helps me upgrade, helps Nate, too!

The few cheap Harbor Freight things I bought on a whim go to my divorced sister-in-law ...
:p
