« Part 3: horizontal router table (cont) Part 4 of misc series Part 5: horizontal router table (cont) »


I have made some more progress here. I got the adjustment knobs working and the vertical action of the router plate now works as it should. I also have the table working and adjustable from ~30 to 90 degree angle to the router bit.

I did manage to destroy the dust collection holder, so that will be rebuilt tomorrow.

Particularly impressed with the adjustable table angle feature. This seems a lot more easy (and solid) way to go than angling the router

It’s alive and growing. Neat.

I love thinking about these kind of projects. There are so many ways to do them.
It will be fun to fire her up.

arrrgh! Just broke my keyhole bit making theT-slots on the sled.

I’d like to say that it’s due to an unforeseen knot, but it’s actually due to a knot that I didn’t pay attention to.

Next up is the dovetail bit. Perhaps I can rectify this or break the dovetail bit too! It’s not like I spent anything on this bit…
