Scott the same line of thinking applies to making your own table, i.e. make a simple one and use it until you figure out what you would like different about it. Follow the links given and look at what others have done and pick out what you think would work for you. Ask questions about the different features you see and we'll tell you the pros and cons as we each see them.I thought about making my own in my free time at my job. I have a great set of machines that I can make a table top with, but I'm thinking that I would rather come home and make what I'm interested in. Since I have never had a router table before I think I will buy one for now then make one when I better know what I want in a setup. Plus my wife is telling me that she is buying me a table for Christmas. Maybe she is trying to move me out to the shed for a permanent residents. Hmmm doesn't sound to bad.
Hi Roy. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.Vince no sir, although I'm not sure why I would have used that device as my router place came with pre-drilled holes. Would I still need to use a method to center the router on the base plate?
I'm talking about Mike's first reply, last picture. Where the above table T-handle wrench is going through the access port. There's a black plastic/rubber baffle or sorts, but now I think I know that it's just a dust sleeve? My second hand router (same model) didn't come with it and I don't think it's necessary.
