Been working on this one for a while, like a lot of things I do I start a project and as I need it I finish it. This is one of the I need a router in a table to cut finger joints so I made the base and the top and clamped my jig to it and made the box I need. Then I need to cut some molding so I need a fence so I made that. Now I have finished the miter rail and put a safety switch(pic 3) and plug so I don’t have to get to the wall every time I need to change a bit. a piece of PVC pipe to hold the router adjuster and some large storage drawers. just in case I need to take my show on the road I put some tie down points on it. kind of a hog pog of parts but it works for me.
When I saw the price of store bought safety switch I was real proud of my switch. and it works good.
Router is a Porter Cable 7519 3.25 hp
the lift plate is a Kreg Precision PRS3000
handles are oak scrap
The switch is a cheep decorator 15 amp with a thin 1/4 inch cover with a stick out to hit the off side of the switch. The cover must be lifted to turn on the router. the plug is there to allow safe bit changing faster no moving crap to get to the wall plug.
I made the large drawer to hold box joint jig and other router (smaller hand router it’s a Dewalt combo 1.75hp.
