We remake our amazing router table fence, complete with lead screw drive positioner similar to the Incra LS system, a micro adjuster, and multi-joinery features. It’s really unlike any router fence you’ve ever seen! It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)
Since I relied on many pictures when I was designing my router table I thought I would share some of what I came up with. I used: Incra Maste-R-Lift II, Incra LS17 Positioner Super Fence, PC 7518 Router, Kreg paddle switch and a iGauging 6” DRO Additional pictures here Though I found many pictures of tables with Incra lift systems, I never found one that showed how to attach a iGauging DRO (digital readout) to the lift. Also I never saw any satisfactory locations for the DRO...
My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...
I picked up a Jessem FX II router lift a couple of years ago and finally found time to make my 4th router table. This time I took a novel approach to make the cutout using the template as a support frame to increase the thickness of the plywood to 1 1/2”. The 2nd part of this blog illustrates how I made an adjustable fence using 1/2” screws. This is an awesome design that uses epoxy so no welding is needed. My neighbor likes to take pictures for me so instead of writing a no...
I used threaded rod as a rack to make a fence positioner. This is the same basic concept I had used earlier for a stop block which supplies 1 click every 1/32 of an inch. The threaded rod does not turn, other than a half turn for micro-adjusting. I still consider this a prototype, so I used bolts for construction which allowed me to try different options. I am in the process of reworking the router wing on my tablesaw, and this will be part of it. The whole assembly locks into place in one ...
Router table the finaleA little tour through my last part on this project. So here are the place we will end as usual… Yes I am Mr. backwards. To finish where we ended last, this is the glue up of the vacuum hole.I made pieces of plywood that could make it tight, so the suction will be optimal.Did that make any sense? No this is not a ship drill press… And you are not on drugs!It’s just tilted to drill the holes for the vacuum hose mount, I wanted it to come in on a angel, so I...
I have a cast steel wing on my table saw, that came with an attachment for a router fence.It does not work..I am creating and building a new higher and more solid router fence.
