The hinged box is for router bit storage. I put the hinges on it so I could lift it to a horizontal position when selecting bits. Much easier then standing on my head to get at the bottom ones.:laugh:
I don't have the vacuum plate, just a hose attachment on the left side of the table. It gets most of the dust that falls into the router area.
Jim I wondered about that toggle clamp. It sort of defines the whole setup, as in rather cheap. Thanks for the comparison, I think you did a great job for not having the MLCS one in hand
I also saw the shop made one in Shop Notes. It was on that LONG list of shop projects somewhere.
Ed you won't be disappointed with the Router Workshop Table. I think these guys have done an amazing job building some of these tables, some of them rival fine furniture. But I wouldn't trade the RW table. It's simplicity and capabilities suit me just fine.
