I’m moving to an apartment and no longer will have a garage
to make messy – thus the messy tools are mostly going to go while
the hand-tools stay.

I have a CFW router table. It’s a vertical and a horizontal router table
in one unit… and every angle in beween because the router mount tilts
and locks. A lead-screw allows moves the bit back and forth, your router’s
depth adjustment does it’s thing, and moving the work give you the third

It’s a three-axis milling jig for the router, basically. I used it with a Dewalt
plunge router with a WoodRat plunge bar to cut some mortises… it wasn’t
as much fun as using the horizontal mortiser on my Robland XSD, but
it wasn’t nearly as distasteful as mortising topside with a plunge router
and a fence.

It was the predecessor of the Hawk RouterShop and is arguably cooler in some ways.

1. It’s portable. The tables are phenolic so it’s only 20 lbs. or so.

2. It won’t rust because the tables are phenolic.

3. It doesn’t cost $600 or whatever the Hawk sells for these days.

Is anybody interested enough in this to make an offer that will get my

Here's the table with some stuff blocking the view

I wasn’t planning on including the router with the table, but it could be. I
have some special bases I made that make this router work well with this
particular table for plunging mortises and raising panels…. dust collection
works great on the router… but by the time the dust is supposed to go
from the router bit to the hole in the router it has some other options.
It does pretty well with the horrible fine dust but chips still pile up under
the table. It could be enclosed to some extent, perhaps completely
if you were motivated and clever.

The featherboards are included too.

I’m getting rid of a bunch of stuff I used when I did this work to earn
money. I don’t anymore so having every tool for every situation that
comes up in doing cabinets is not “my thing” these days.

I’ll take some pics of individual items and put them up tomorrow,
if I make the time.

Where in Western Mass are you? I’m in Albany, NY and will undoubtedly lust for at least some of the tools you’ll be posting.

Amherst – near Springfield, generally, if you are really clueless
about geography (not saying you are, but I tend to be).

I just put-up a video, should show up in a couple of minutes. I show
the features and explain how the table and router work together.

I’ve decided I’d like to sell the router, accessories and table as one
package. I know some folks just want the table, but watch the video
and you may change your mind.

Hey Loren, I hate seeing you down size. I know CA has to be pretty expensive as far as a decent place to live is concerned. Hate seeing you sell off some of your tools.

You know, you could still take on cabinet jobs with having some minor tools and outsource much of the job such as doors, drawer boxes and so on.

Did you bid on that high tech looking studio job?

Router table is long gone.

This was posted a long time ago when I was living in Massachusetts.

I was burned out on woodworking at the time I think
and dealing with family issues.

I haven’t heard back on the high tech job. That’s fine
with me.

Have your say...
