Yes i know its not a wood project but its for woodworking
So a few weeks ago i got the idea to make a router table extension wing. the only problem with that is that the right side of the table already had a storage cabinet made for it. after thinking it over and doing so research i decided i would mill out a hole in my cast iron table top for the insert to fit into. Yes i know that i could have bought the benchdog one but I am a high school student who doesn’t have that much money to spend. I mean i bought my saw used for $500 so making it myself was the best bet. The metal shop at my school had just got a new Clausing CNC mill. unfortunately nether my teacher nor i could figure out how to use the CNC function so i had to hand mill the whole thing. after about 4 hours of combined mill time it fit my router plate perfectly! i did experience some warping in the cast iron but that was corrected once i got it home and mounted on the saw.
