Rolling Table Saw and Router Table Cabinet

This is my roll around cabinet base for my Delta Contract table saw and Sommerfeld Tools router table. Not much to it, 3/4” plywood, lots of screws, and some heavy duty casters. Hope it inspires you to build a better one (really, this shouldn’t be that hard :-) ) and share it with the rest of us!!!

Great use of space. It does inspire me to finally put the router table in my extension table. Thanks for the kick in the back side. BTKS

Yeah its a good router. My only problems is that twice now i have had to completely tear down the unit in order to get to the inside of the handle that turns to allow height adjustment. After so many cuts, fine dust gets lodged in the spring loaded button that switches the unit from free plunge to winder handle mode. The mechanism is identical to that of a ball point pen that has a clicker on the end, just bigger. Once dust gets in there, the button binds and wont switch out of free plunge model, thereby making the winder handle stuck, and the micro adjust wont work. Which wouldn’t be a big deal if the handle was easy to disassemble by itself. However, the problem is that you have to COMPLETELY take the router apart from the motor down and then across to that handle to get to the problem. Stinks. It’s probably my fault since I have cut LOTS of MDF with little or no dust collection. I should probably do a review of the router, it’s great other than that.

Good job on the rolling cabinet. It will serve you well. BTW, the right hand side MDF wall of the router support is split. I also noticed your TS fence. Is it the home made fence, out of the 80/20 aluminum profiles? I also liked your drill press table. Maybe one day I’ll have more space and definitely inspire from your projects. Cheers.

is there dust extraction on the router table as well? or only on the table saw?
