Been doing some modification on my MFT/Wagon lately. Since I´m short of space I was thinking about integrating my router into the MFT somehow. Came up with some ideas

So I went to work

Placed the Routerlift where I wanted it and lay some scrap pieces of MDF tightly to the routerplate. The MDF pieces has some doublesided tape on them.


Drilled 4 holes in the corner and cutout the centerpiece with a HANDSAW!!! :-)

Used the Routerplate as a depthindicator

Done

Testfitting

“Lika a gloooove” (Jim Carrie style) – Perfect fit

Trying it with my INCRA fence

First test routing. No dustextraction since my dad borrowed my CT26 so it´s kind of a mess. I will install added dustextraction later on.

Since this MFT also is my assembly table I had to somehow make the INCRA fence easy to install and remove, so I came up with the idea of a mini MFT plate mounted on the INCRA base
It works really well. Installation is a matter of seconds, Scchweet!

I lock it with my 6 “bench dogs” and for added security I can use nuts and bolts to really clamp it down.

So this is the current status. I added a routerbits drawer for storage.

Take care!

Thanks! I made those myself on the lathe. Simple PVC plastic…
