I really like it . hope I can make it work too. After I .make this table-saw router combo. Wish me luck! I also like the dust collection system,whoa.
Oh, for . . .
Jeez, I just finished puzzling out the process of adding a router to the side table of my Powermatic 2000 and [i]now[/i] you publish a set of plans! Oh well, better late than never, I guess.
I have been using a Bosch portable saw/stand in my remodeling biz for a few years now. One day when I pulled out the right side extension of the table I saw the potential to build an insert to accommodate a router. I made a "temporary" plywood insert that has worked fairly well(for 3yrs) but getting a good fence setup such as the one in this plan is a needed upgrade. The special clamps to span the saw's fence are exactly what I needed rather than having to clamp my shop-made fence onto the edges of the tabletop. I spotted clamps like them recently while searching tool catalogs/websites for a specialty router bit. Prior to this I'd made a similar setup for my Delta contractor's saw with a right side extension table with a shop-made router insert. Again the dust collecting/easily adjustable fence was the hang-up. Good to see this setup. I hope some other entrepreneurs will share their innovations like this, especially the very portable ones. They're great for remodelers and small home shops too.
Dear UkuleleCrazy, Stay tuned... John White's new router table/outfeed table will be online (and in homes) by about Sept. 30. I hear that it features dust collection too. -Gina, FineWoodworking.com
This sounds like a great idea for those of us with limited workspace. Of course what I would really love to see is how to make a table-saw/router combo with a dust collection system as well. Be nice if it also had storage for the various bits too.
