Tablesaw Workstation #1: Fence Purchase

03-27-2017 02:49 AM by Gingzillaman | 0 comments »

Today I purchased the Vega Pro 50 fence system. I had some Amazon Points saved up and decided this was the first major upgrade I wanted to do in regards to the workshop. I did a lot of research and reading on different fence options. This fit the budget and did not require much tweaking for install. I was looking at the VSC fence and making the rails but I just didn’t want to fuss with all that. I am more focused on building a safe and functional table saw workstation with ample capacit...

Router Table Build

02-12-2017 11:11 PM by builtinbkyn | 12 comments »

So I decided to make a mess, um, no I mean a router table. Man I forgot how routing hardboard and MDF makes copious amounts of the most nasty dust imaginable and there’s almost no way to capture it, so I gave up on trying. Respirator all day and then a massive cleanup. Well anyway, I’ve been using a Craftsman Workmate with an Incra top bolted to it. Actually there’s even a layer of oak flooring strips below the top making for a heavy load. Not sure why I did that. I ...

New shop! #10: Router Table Continued

10-08-2016 01:10 PM by Steve Felsheim | 3 comments »

Just finished the construction on the router table. Pretty happy with it. My electrician friend scoffed (rightfully so) at my switch because I didn’t mount it in a box. I cut out the old switch location and installed it properly. Not many practical color choices of laminate at the home center, so black it is. I used Incra T-Track and a Woodpecker router plate that will hold a Triton 3.125 HP router. Given the Triton has a tool to adjust the height from above the table, and...

Router Table Build #5: Cabinet Build

07-15-2016 04:36 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Its been a long time between shop projects. Harbor Freight Dust Collection System still seating in pieces yet to be assembled as are a few other projects in various states of incompleteness :-( However, the past week I did manage to get some shop time. The new layout I made for the shop several months ago before all the WEPs started is proving out to be very productive. I actually have dedicated space to layout, cut, fabricate, and assemble. Still need a finishing area. However, separat...
