I started woodworking in my father's garage in the 80's working on little projects here and there and with him on projects around the house. Later in HS I took a cabinetry class, and really found something that gave me some peace. In college I earned an AA in Engineering and finally a BA in Aero/Astro Engineering. Following college, I joined the USAF. I have spent over 20 years in the AF, all the while accumulating tools and learning how to use them properly. I have always been building something, it keeps me centered and somewhat sane.

Hi B’73. Looks like you deserve a belated welcome!


... and getting my router table off of my table saw. It takes so much work to set up the router, then set up the table saw, then possibly the router again….

- Breeze73


Picked up this comment from your reply to the Incra jig project by JI.

When I upgraded my router I also purchased a Woodpecker lifter. This made my old UniLifter redundant. Not sure what tablesaw you have (more on this later) but it should be adaptable so that a router does not interfere with the saw’s setup. I had a “side feed” table extension that I converted to accept a second router,

It makes an ideal backup router table when I don’t want to change my primary router table setting and can use my tablesaw fence to boot… its dust collection is non existent but worth the price.

May I suggest a few words about yourself… That way we will all know how to take the mickey out of you and try to ensure our “insults” and quips will not offend… I’m speaking for myself of course (haven’t done a ventriloquist course…yet).

Also a lot of people neglect to populate their workshop. It’s nice to appreciate people’s environment and what they have to work with… that way I could tailor recommendations… I would not recommend purchase of a large plane when you only have room for a small helicopter…

PS. Nice workbench.

Great idea. I’ll work on posting some more info about myself. I can definitely see the benefit of allowing the Lumberjack community to get to know me a little better. I definitely know how to take criticism, I’ve been in the military for over 20 years. Almost ready to retire!!

WRT my current table saw, as can be seen in the picture of my workbench, I have an Incra TS-LS setup on a Jet contractors saw. 75% of my frustration with going back and forth between the table saw mounted router table is having to reposition the fence for the router table. And if I need to make some cuts on the table saw, I have to completely tear down my router table setup. Part of that is my own fault as I usually don’t use plans, and build on the fly. So, I know my workflow could be smoother. However, I love the accuracy and repeatability of the Incra fence, and will not give it up. For myself, I believe a stand alone router table with a separate Incra positioner is the next tool I need to build for my shop. I plan to build everything except for the fence and the positioner. I already have the Incra MasterLift and I love it!!

I Have never tried it before, however, I have heard of people using mag switches to hold down the fence, in fact I just found the one I was referring to.

The mag switches great… though not cheap… I have always been sceptical about the lateral movement with the jig, however, that chap has continued to use it for years.

Agree with the dedicated router table and the Incra positioner, however, if you have the hardware, don’t let the potential router real estate on your tablesaw go to waste… just keep it for a backup free hand (bearing) routing. Sometimes the extra table space (without the Inca) invaluable.
