Topic tags/keywords: router fence table saw accuracy measuring tools keyway keys

Some good things I found on-line that I thought I’d pass along to all my buddies and anyone who happens upon this post.

TIP #!:

Fence transforms tablesaw into a real router table

Free plans for those who want or have a router table extension on their table saw.

I’m thinking of adding this to my Milti-Use Table Saw Fence .

TIP #2

Keyway Keys Guarantee Accuracy
Learn an old machinist’s secret to verify the accuracy of your work.

That’s all for today.

The first one looks pretty familiar to me. I have a reasonably similar jig that I use on my Unisaw at home and on my ShopSmith in Az. They both work great. Lots of ways to build them but you gotta love using your tablesaw fence as a router table fence as well.

Both great tips. Thanks tyvekboy.

I don’t yet have a router built into my table saw extension, but it is on the list. This looks like a great way to do the fence.

Since my fence is just a combination of their ideas I don’t think they’d be interested. Now if I can make it brew beer while using the table saw and router … maybe they’d publish it then … lol
