I don't like the dead man, I wiggle around to much and have stopped the machine accidentally in really bad spots.

I do have the foot switch hooked up to 4 tools and the others all have the switch for the "hip bump".

All my tools are on casters and last time I did the "hip bump" thing, my machine ended up at the back of the shop

And yes, I do weigh a little more than a "skinny" 188

Well, I haven't seen the 150lb part of the scale for quite some time either....but back to your question about the table. I saw in Norm Abrams video where he talked about the bit drawers on his original model not being tall enough to hold some of the taller router bits. Just an observation from his video.

Disclaimer; I am a complete newb to woodworking so any advice I offer should be taken knowing that fact.

Don't move fast enough (artifical hips and knees) for a "hip bump", but can still hit a good whack with the hands. That big paddle on the switch at Rockler looks interesting!Thanks for the inputs to all!

Looking good. Great idea. Dust control also?

I'm afraid to picture you guys , 4 foot switches & 3 hip switches. What tunes do you play while doing all this dancing, ROCK??? LOL

Do they make a double pump switch,
click it & it's "ON", click it again & it's "OFF".
(Then you'd have to dance to RAP )


A soft start on the new routers usually helps the startup current stay pretty low.
I'd use 20 amp switches & outlets regardless, they last longer. The 15 amp house outlets don't make good contact over time.
Most shops are wired with #12 wire & on 20 amp breakers. Wired buddy's shop (3/4 conduit) with #12 stranded THHN, good for 25 Amps. Even if not on a 20 circuit the 20 Amp sw & outlet are better. (New house wiring code is #14 wire & can only handle 15 Amps, cheaper, *! so watch that your Vacuum & tool are on different circuits if in the garage)

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.
