Unit removed from table. side view.
This is a angle router I made about 15 years ago to make straight complex cabinet trim.I almost sold it on Ebay twice but decided to keep it the second time because I needed to do some mortising.
It started years ago when I was taking some scrap aluminum to the recycling yard and I spotted a couple of big aluminum ring flanges and I thought they reminded me of trunions. I got bought them and at the time I had access to a limited machine shop.
i normally have this mounted to a scrap sink cutout I pick up at the local building supply. I removed it from the countertop for the photos.
Well it took about 4 years of on and off playing with them on the mill and picking up some other scrap aluminum i came up with this.
I have since moved on to making another router fixture that does the same work except I can’t tilt the new one 90 degrees for mortising like this one.
