In this episode we revisit the homemade router lift, completely redesigning it! This one is better than ever, and it doubles as a mini router table with full lift and lower dust collection capabilities! All this and a little twisted humor in this episode of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop!

It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. So check it HERE!

This has got to be one of, if not your very best projects. This is something I absolutely want to fit into a wing of my table saw once I save up for a new fence kit, with longer rails.

Nice. That would be very useful especially in a small shop that may otherwise not have the room for a router table much less with a lift.

Another fine project with some funnies thrown in for free. I’d be tempted to put some thin but strong pieces of wood on the bottom so I could stabilize it on my workbench with holdfasts or clamps.

Your work has become more refined, and elegant in the design. I miss the frequency of your programing as well. This is on my list of builds. Adding the instructions is a really good step in making your stuff more user friendly in the builds.

Mustache Mike never responded to my email request on your contact page regarding the type of blower to use on my scroll saw?
