I had to get rid of my dedicated router stand to make room for the new bandsaw ;-) Now I had to find a place for my router. The OEM SawStop extension table was 11/16” particleboard and a laminate on both sides. I was concerned about it not being stiff enough so I made my own wing. A sheet of 3/4” and a sheet of 1/2” baltic birch should be stiff enough not to sag. Gives me 22 total ply. Couldn’t find a vendor locally who carried gloss black colored laminate like the SawStop so I had to settle for graphite. But it’s flat and it’s flush. Table top insert is a Woodpecker aluminum plate with inserts and a Porter Cable 890 router. Now I need to make up a sacrificial fence to clamp to the SawStop fence and some type of dust collection underneath. With a dedicated enclosed stand hooked into the dust collection system I had forgotten how much a mess routers make. I’ll be looking to LJ to see if anyone has shared a dust collection solution for table saw mounted routers. Thanks for looking.
