are you referring to a horizontal router...I just received an email from Infinity advertising a vertical routing
sled. Any plans available for a homemade one? I put together a vertical routing table but haven't used it yet
When's the last time you needed to run a board across a router bit at an angle for a tapered profile? This reminds me of Titebond's claim of waterproofness. It looks to me like they're trying to sell something of no consequence for $139.now we're talking...
that looks easy enough to reverse engineer...
Yes, this is what I'm referring to.
Nice work. Thank You for posting pictures!!!!!Jim,
I made one from odds and ends around the shop. It is designed to hold the vertical member being cut for a lock miter joint. The cutter tends to push the member up and away from the fence and it is pretty much impossible to hand hold the board and guide it through the cut. I made mine to use the existing 8" high fence and the 3/4" groove for holding Bench Dog feather boards. It's adjustable for boards 21/4 to 5" wide but narrower boards can be held with a spacer. The bar across the bottom is a handle that allows applying pressure against the fence and the cam disc helps resist the outward force that the cutter applies to the work piece. The push bar is relieved to accept boards up to 1" thick. The guide rail in the groove is there to resist the upward force of the cutter. It's probably overkill but the top backer piece rides on the top and back of the fence to resist the outward force of the cutter. Both the groove and top edge of the fence as well as their counter parts are waxed to help move the whole contraption carrying the work piece through the cutter. For harder wood I clamp the work piece to the right side member to resist the upward force. It didn't cost $139.00 + shipping!
Nice...but only $636 U.S. or about a cool grand in Canadian gold.are you referring to a horizontal router...

I looked at the four videos that Al has on Youtube for this lift, and that's a really nice setup he has there. While he may not show everything (and I don't blame him for that) there's enough info there to make a similar setup.Al Thayer was selling plans for a home made lift that would convert quickly to horizontal. I made one of my own design and used it to make some picture frames, There are some major advantages to having the back of your work on the table and running the bit over the top like a pin router would do but from a different angle. http://www.routerforums.com/table-m...outer-lift-something-you-have-never-seen.html
