I made a router table one year ago for my ELU router (cf. pic 6) and it worked fine but there were too many technical limits (especially when I wanted to make panel doors). Also last year I bought a Festool saw that could be mounted so that it became a table saw (cf. pic 5). As the tablesaw turned out to be very precise and versatile, I decided to make a new ‘tabletop’ (cf. pic 3) with which I put my router into the frame of the table saw. The result is a new router table (cf. pic 1 and 2).
It works fine, it’s more precise than my previous router table, I can do more with it (use it in different angles etc.) and it has become a lot easier to mount my router.
Together with the new ‘table top’ I also made a handle that can adjust the height of the router without having to take the router out (it’s a simple turning mechanism)
Idea for the routertable came from: http://www.festool.be/NL/Products/Pages/Product-Detail.aspx?pid=570269&name=Tafelfrees-TF-1400-Set
