The base for almost all of my projects is finally nearing completion. I received a new R4512 late in 2012 and although being very good, it needed some upgrades. I received the Vega extensions for Christmas and the rest is history. I added the extension table on, which required some engineering to keep the catch on the back of the fence. I kept having trouble with the extension mounts bending, so som 2×8’s made great suppoert brackets.
The biggest task was getting the router table extension built on the left side. I had to dado out quite a bit from the underside to make it fit on the aluminum extrusion frame. The most frustrating part was when my plate jig came loose and the router bit took off on me. I intend to fill it in later, but for now it servers as a painful reminder of making sure your double sided tape is actually sticking.
Overall it’s not perfect, but it is mine and it works for what I need.
