Thank you for your reply.

That is what the three head shapers do. They have the fences set where you can run any size peace and not hit the other head. You could do the same thing with two routers. You would have to build the table.

Do you happen to have pictures or plans as I am not familiar with shapers?

This should give you an idea of what I am talking about. Only with 2 routers.

Dean,

why not build your own? Making a top is not difficult, I built mine to replace the wing on my table saw in an afternoon. it uses back side of the table saw fence for the router and works great. You could build a table double width with T-Track on each side (for clamps/featherboards/etc.) with a common fence in between, or 2 fences back to back one for each router. Drop in two inserts for the routers and your golden. It might take you a couple days and a couple hundred in materials but it will also be suited to your work needs and not the other way around. If you need some plan ideas let me know I can probably point you to a couple to get your thoughts working.

Thank you jaidee. That is what I ended doing. The table is finished but now I need to find a Bosch 1617 used router.
Have a great day and make a lot of sawdust.

Thanks jaidee, That is what I was trying to get across but wasn’t doing a very good job of it.

Great Dean, glad it worked out for you. If you can, post a couple pictures so we can see what you came up with.

Sweet!!! I especially like the fold down compactibility of your design. I have a small shop and am always looking for ways to make things space efficient. The only question I have is on your fence. It looks like it’s a dovetail jig and I can’t see how you would attach a fence. Then again, perhaps a fence is not needed for what you’re using this for. And I will never stop making sawdust …..... if only to keep my wife occupied dusting in the house so she stays out of my shop ;-)
