Always wanted a top quality router table and now I have one with all the bells and whistles. The table and all machined parts are all expertly made. I installed a Porter Cable 3.25 Hp. Router in the lift and when everything is hooked up to the two dust collection ports ( 4” under table and 2.5” on the fence ) there is virtually no dust at all. An excellent addition to my shop.

MLCS PowerLift Pro Router Lift

MLCS PowerLift Pro Router Lift

10-28-2016 01:06 PM by Indiana_Parrothead | 1 comment »

About three years ago I built a new router table and added the MLCS PowerLift model 9450, I had reviewed it here. Since I use a router quite a bit this was a great addition to the shop. With it having a digital readout it gave me a lot precision when it came to the depth of cut and made changing the depth of cut very easy. A few months ago MLCS introduced a new model that incorporated a Android Tablet to control the lift that added a lot of new features. Since I use the router a lot I decided...

H.F. Dovetail jig vs General Tools Dovetail jig

H.F. Dovetail jig vs General Tools Dovetail jig

10-21-2016 05:11 PM by jdjdjfhgnghgn | 9 comments »

I gave the Harbor Freight dovetail jig a perfect 5 rating. I purchased Exactly 3 of these jigs and exactly 3 were broke right out of the box. Each one had a knob broken completely off. Perfect score. I know, it’s harbor freight…....I’m actually a fan. Might even try again. I bought a General Tools dovetail jig and it is pretty good. I’m a beginner and it was a quick setup and got good results. Joints a little tight, but that can be adjusted. Yeah, more seasoned ...

Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

This review is of a product I am selling (can I review my own product?) I need to get this information out there and so far my relatively small business doesn’t have the budget that allows mass marketing and advertising. This router lift is completely unique in that it mounts in the cabinet below the the table rather than to the bottom of the table top (or inset). The biggest advantage to this design is that it can be used in a lift top router table! Yep… no more bending ov...

A serious consideration if after space saving & 100% flatness

A serious consideration if after space saving & 100% flatness

09-19-2016 03:14 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

This would be the 2nd largest new $$$ item I have purchased in the wood working arena on sale at Rockler for $249 (full retail is $329). This is the Promax RT, full cast iron, made to fit between the rails of your contractor / cabinet saw (space limitations apply such as motor being in the way on left tilts). I came from the Bosch benchtop router table (RA1181) that was giving me some…gruff. When I was looking to upgrade to more robust router solution, I came across this Bench Dog. ...

Does what it's supposed to do...  with a bit of frustration

Does what it's supposed to do... with a bit of frustration

04-20-2016 06:25 PM by vulgarviking | 3 comments »

They say hind sight is 20/20. I recently bought this because my stand alone Craftsman (diecast deluxe router table and cabinet) was taking up too much space in my one car garage and with the recent purchase of my Delta 36-5000, I needed all the space possible. So, I sold the Craftsman and rather than take the money to build a router table between the saw’s rails, I bought the Bosch. And the reason why I choose this is because the table is exactly 27 inches and with some modifications...

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

04-19-2016 03:56 AM by Jay39 | 5 comments »

Before I begin, I already had a Bosch 3 HP 1617 Router and a small benchtop Bosch router cabinet. Changing bits were a chore (usually ending up with cuts on hand when changing), and I did not enjoy the routing experience. In fact, I rarely did it because of the difficulty. Fortunately, I knew that as a wood worker, routing is an important technique that can enhance many projects. Well, this just in! JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Complete Router Table System! System came in 3 mid-size boxes, ...

Not Precisely Precision

Not Precisely Precision

04-15-2016 02:15 AM by TheMrWoody | 10 comments »

I have many Rockler products in my workshop and I’m generally pleased with their accuracy. This router table insert replaced a Rockler Pro Plate so I could install a new 3 HP Porter Cable. I found the mechanical system to be exceptionally well made and the top plat is an excellent thickness to avoid any deflection. The adjustment mechanism is easy to use and the clamping system for the motor is very good. Where this device gets and “F” rating is on the insert (see the pics showing the gap ...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

Long story short, I have been trying to find a sub base plate to use on my routers, problem I always found was none would line up with my router, most of the ones i tried with pre drilled holes was they didn’t line up properly on my router, and if i attempted to drill new holes, there was little room for error. Low and behold I had two choices buy a different brand of router, or keep hunting. The hunt paid off. I finally found a sub base plate I can use in conjunction with my router. ...
