This was a second try at Table Saw Router Extension. The first try wasn’t particularly bad but wasn’t as well planned out and used scrap wood laying around. The fence was a lot more simple too.
I made a simple box frame using my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig using 3/4” Birch Plywood. The top is a 3/4” piece of MDF with a hole cut for the Phenolic insert. An additional item I did this time was to build in dust collection accessible from the front.
The dust collection is still a work in project. It is not very visible in the picture the the dust collection underneath connects to the fence on top via a hole in the MDF surface. This actually works pretty well but doesn’t do much for underneath. I put a D-Handle on my router that allows me to connect a secondary hose but haven’t figured out how to connect the two or if I even need to.
The fence connects to my Table Saw fence and provides storage for the Router Accessories and most of my router bits. The fence is removable and has a carrying handle. The intent here was to have storage somewhere for the fence but I haven’t figured that out yet.
