Thanks y’all.

Jim and Tony, yes it is fun to be able to say I built it my self, then more fun to use it to build something else.

Took Junkie, I haven’t actually used the router yet. I’ll comment after I try it.

This is really impressive. I’ve seen his work, as well as the design by Mathias, but the complexity is a bit intimidating to me.

Keep us posted on the Harbor Freight router. I was thinking of getting the plunge router they offer.

This lift probably looks more complicated than it is. The plans step you through each piece and the assembly is fairly simple. Hope to get back into the shop in a week or so.
