Here’s the router table. Sorry if you get motion sick. :-)
Pictures on the router table with more explanation and detail.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Cross cut sled for table saw.
Miter gauge for table saw cross cut sled with flip-up stop block. Still have some finishing touches to take care of, including the final length and possibly a sliding sacrificial fence front, and some hold-down clamps.
Upgrades to my Jet JBS-14mw, I got from craigslist for $100.
Before, you had to unscrew 4 knobs and take both top and bottom covers off, just to get inside to change the blade. I connected the 2 covers together and put them on hinges, installed a wheel brush, and a tension quick-release. I still have to adjust all the guides and would like to install one of them fancy yellow springs and some new tires.
(see my other video for a look at the final version of the quick tension release.)
Better version of quick tension release to replace prototype from previous video.
It’s been said that a good way to test if your table saw is running smoothly, is to stand a nickel on edge, while you turn it on and off. Guess mine is smooth enough. I’d still like a link belt, ...
We all know what it’s like to have a small shop and very little room to work, let alone the tools.
I got very frustrated one day, after realizing that I spent more time moving tools around than working with the tools. So I started putting wheels on everything…. everything! :-)
You can see what I did in these movies and hopefully get some ideas from what I’ve done.
