Router Table Guard/Fulcrum/Vac

One of my router table has a safety guard and another has a fulcrum pin. My twin mini router tables have nothing but emptiness (think naked). With this new versatile shop-made addition all my router tables will feature everything I need for accuracy, safety as well as dust collection. (I hope I didn’t forget anything!)

And all this at no cost since I used readily available material. I hope it will inspire at least on LJ to make a step towards accuracy, safety as well as dust collection. The main thing here is the fulcrum pin that provides safety when big bites are removed free hand (no fence).

All details and more photos on this page of my blog.

Best,

Serge

@Dusty56: I love your avatar. It reminds me my younger days while I was watching The Munsters. Thank you so much! (Wow, 1964!)

Best,

Serge

Hi Serge , when I saw the picture and burst out laughing , I knew Grandpa just HAD to be my new avatar !
So many funny memories of The Munsters. Glad you like it , my friend : )
If you go to my home page , the photo is a little larger and clearer, and of course, funnier.

Another winner, Serge. And, yes, I agree with Dusty. The Munsters were always a favorite o mine, and still are.

This sure beats the heck out of my rounded board nailed to a scrap put together the last second. As usual a super design and build Serge.

Nice job serge. Mine is similar, but it clamps to the fence so I don’t have to remove it.

Serge; you have my vote for a simple but effective router table accessory.

It is very satisfying to get such positives comments from other woodworkers. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’m glad some like it and I hope it will serve your well, as well as save your fingers!

@NiteWalker: I agree that yours being clamped to your fence is handy, but since I have several router tables mine is better to be on the fly! Thanks.

Best,

Serge
