Hi Router

That's COOL, I have one also that I use from time to time and they do work great when the band saw or the scroll just can't get the job done ,BOSCH makes a great blade to use on this type of setup :) it will do just about all the small and big cuts that the scroll can do.
Drop and cut :)

Since I lost all my tool buying cash at casino as usual, I had to compromise and make me a pseudo table scroll saw.
This one is not as dangerous as the last one. :D

I love my bosch jig saw! I had about half a dozen cheapies over the years and finally bought a Bosch 1691 barrel grip model about a year ago. Defitely go with bosch blades. They kick butt on any blade around. I don't know how it would work used in an inverted position like back but can't wait to hear how it works for you.

Thanks BJ,
I have a few packs of Bosch blades awaiting the new project.
The T shank blades are just great for quick changes, especially over the table.

Corey,
The inverted position gives you a lot more control and the table insert eliminates tearouts and blade reflection on heavy stock. much more acurate cuts.

WOW! What a cool improvisation!! I've thought of putting it in a vise, etc. but NOT a router table!

Looks like it would be like operating a band saw... bottom half only!

What is the smallest blade type you plan on using?

Good job! Thank you for sharing!

Sweet! I love Bosch's little scrolling blade. Do you use it with the blade guides ( the arms that come in from the side to hold the blade) locked in?

Black and Decker marketed a router/jig saw table years back. My first router came mounted in it, a grey plastic affair. Always thought it was a neat trick, but I've never had to use it with the jigsaw yet.

Bosch did the same thing about a year ago with a Skill table saw, router, jig saw set up like that.

Router table scroll saw

That's neat. Many years ago when J.C. Penney sold tools in their catalog, they had a steel table that could be converted to a router table,scroll saw table and a circular saw table. All I had to do was mount the tool to the underside of the table with the parts that were provided for each tool. Too much set up and take down so one day I decided I needed a router table so I cut out the center of the table and mounted a 1 1/2 inch thick formica top to it, mounted my router to it and this has been my router table. It even came with a switch and outlet which I plug my router into.

Thanks wil141.

It's Bosch 1590EVSK and they are around 160.00 these days.
The so called blank router plate is from woodpek but in the picture it shows it has no holes as in blank but all of their plates have 4 damn holes in them.
their idea of BLANK plate and mine are completely different :D

The PC oscillating sanders are pricey, but still a better deal than most fixed base sanders. The only other adaptor you missed was for using the Kreg pocket hole jig in your router table.
