After reading Fred’s post about his beautiful jigs, I noticed that for the router mortising jig Fred used “Cutting board” (UMHV or something like that).
I tried to push it over the TS Aluminum top and got disappointed, very difficult to push.
All the story started some 2 years ago when I covered the floor with “Floor Panels”.
The “floor panels are made from HDF covered on both sides with very durable “plastic laminate” (Formica) and if I get 15 years guaranty for walking on them…
I use the 5/16” (8 mm) panels of the smooth surface type.
In Poland they cost around $10 per 39½ square inch (1² Yard or Meter) and that’s, considering the “Euro prices” (not only Euro hinges we have) and come in 50” or 100” length.
On this pic, you can see the “Nicked” cutting board and the floor panel top and bottom sides
I used it for the CS and router auxiliary bases
I used it for the CS and router guide board
For the TS sled
And the sled support (I don’t know how it’s called) to level the table with the sled
For the Drill Press table sacrificial plates (I made a few and change from time to time)
And last but not least, my crazy router table
You can glue it very easy and strong with CA (Super glue) or screw it as I did on the router table top.
