For Christmas my wife gave me a new router. I thought that I would be returning it, when I first looked at the box. When I was at WoodCraft last month to pick up my new bandsaw, the salesman wanted me to look at it, but I wasn’t really interested. After looking at it though,,,,,,,,, I decided I could find a home for it.
I decided it would become a dedicated router table router, because I can lift it from above the table. I ordered a router lift from WP, but it looks like it is going to take another month, at least to get it. The trouble with this router, I found out as I was making it’s new home, is the width of the grips. My old router, a POS Craftsman purchased back in the eighties, was smaller so I had to cut out a new hole for the thing. I purchased a new plate at WoodCraft that is the same foot print of the WP PRL.
When I was at WC I also picked up a “T” track and installed it also. So the new router I didn’t think I would need found a home and also got me off my rear to bring my router table into this century.
I also replaced the lag bolts that hold the secondary fence on my router fence with quarter twenty screws and threaded inserts.
Have to say, I love my wife.
