I am new to router tables. I have used routers a little, and would like to move to intermediate level and have equipment that won’t hold me back.
I made my first router table with mixed results. Using a suggestion from Bill Hylton’s book, I placed the router plate at an offset from center, fairly close to the front, and centered in the left-right direction. For this table, most cuts move from right to left.
Now I would like to use the table from my Delta Contractor saw – specifically, the right-side extension table, which is made from melamine. I am installing an Incra LS32-TS fence for the saw, and I think it makes to leverage the investment by using the same fence system for the router.
What I would like to know: Where would YOU place the router on the table, and why?
