Just an update.

The T-Track kit I provided a link to above is on sale again for $10.99. It's a pretty good deal as most places sell just the track for more than that.

Default router table

I made one, will try and get some pictures. I haven't used it much, but it was great when i made all the window moulding for the inside of the house.

I have a powerfeeder and i fed the wood through.Had to run each piece twice, but the horizontal router table is the only way to go for this job.

The thing i could say that i wish i had did was make it smaller and more portable.
.Mine is the size of a router table.. and takes up extra room.. would be better portable, so you can put it under a work bench and then just take it out when needed.

HI Rick

I would like to see them, (pictures) please

Here's a small tip to save room in your shop, just hang it off the back side of your standard router table ( that's to say just the back part of the Horizontal setup. )

=========

Just a update,,, I'm making a new Horizontal setup to hang off the back of the router table just to see if it can be done, it's going to be a copy of the one I now have made by MLCS with just some new ways to make it a bit cheaper and essayer ......

Just as a side note,, I have seen the plans for the Patrick Spielman one and it's bit lame
It's almost the same one in the Router Magic ( page 191-202 for the table saw side mount)

Default Alternatives

To maximise use, portability, one method that may be adapatable to most existing tables_

Back of base must be rigid, 90 Deg to Hor. router mounting

Use a pie shaped triangle of 3/4 MDF or ply, laminate masonite or seal both sides
Drill two 3/8 holes centered on bolt holes through table base
Small end acts as the swivel, the larger, , through rout a semi-circle

For height adjustment, this easily pivots the router mounting - no complications of tracks or screw adjustments

I use two sturdy 3/16, 2x2 angle irons on backside which keeps "pie" absolutely rigid,

In use, the higher it's raised, the finer the height movement
The pie shaped mounting has rounded corners
Optional - Use 3" long, 3/4 outside hex "bolt-connecters" onto mount/swivel bolts

A shop-made knob may be glued on the swivel's end hex (Never needed it)

Using same concept, for table-top (angle-iron stiffeners)

Their distance apart equal to sides of table base, drilling four 3/8 holes allows fast yet rigid attaching to a base
The table-top can be swiveled for accesss to bits etc (or can be folded)

Router should have over-sized rectangular sub-base anyway, that allows dropping
all into a rabbeted cut-out in top w/out using screws (always use screws if used horizontally)

If cutout is sized w/care, the fit is snug enough no movement takes place
In practice, I use a router w/out sub-base bolted to the Horiz "pie"

Once made, you may find that using a router horizontally is better
(Example, vertical panel-raising bits)

Fence- may be simple or elegant
I once more use angle iron, faced w/wood (then surfaced for trueness)

It is swivel mounted one end - a small clamp on opposite end "locks" fence at any position
My tops always overhang base - ease of clamping, featherboards

If used for jointing, either split the sub-fences' wood or use Tmp carpet tape
(approx 25 thou) on outfeed side

A top safety guard attched to fence may be used, &/or vacuum hose coupling
I prefer a wooden fence-facing thick enough to fully enclose a bit

For profile cuts, I use a subfence , slowly move it into cutter
This gives a zero-clearance "guard"

These adaptions mostly came from the very helpful book
Router Jigs & Techniques > Patrick Spielman
ISBN 0-8069-6694-7


I hope other users find them as useful

Best of regards

Cool Waiting for the paint to dry.

Ah Bj. You have to read my statement carefully. I said, "it gave me ideas on making one."
Not that I was "making one." Big difference. I'm still waiting for the paint to dry on my shop floor. I did get it painted.
