I was wondering if anyone can recommend some sort of potable work table that I can use to bolt my router or 7 inch Makita saw to.

My workshop is tiny so I need something portable that I can put outside.
I just purchased a Makita RP1801 router and definitely need a table for it, also I was thinking if I could bolt my Makita 7 inch circular saw under it that would be even better.

Anybody got any ideas? Thanks in advance

Kind Regards
Anthm

Just build a small router table and make 2 inserts for it. One for the router and one for the saw. Google “free router table plans” and you will find hundreds of easy plans for a table. EDIT: here is exactly what you need… http://www.woodsmithshop.com/media/pdf/303/routertable.pdf

Cheers mate,
Ill take a good look at that, so you saying I could cut inserts in it for the saw and basically use the same fence for both the router and the saw?

I don’t recall seeing one before that inserts the
router and circular saw in the same hole.
While it’s certainly possible to do it that way,
the router sub-base might have to be larger
than you really want to allow the saw sub-base
to drop through the same hole.

Here’s a video of the sort of thing some people
do, especially in countries where stationary
woodworking machines are very expensive.

Thanks for the reply, yes I know what you mean about the base, I’m already thinking the router could go in from the top but the saw would have to be mounted from the bottom of the table top.
I watched the video, it was great, I was hopping to see how he was going to do his fences for the router and the circular saw at the end.
Cheers

If you are going to build a table, then you can make the inserts any size you want. Make them big enough for the saw or router to just drop in from the top!
