Engineers vice mount platefor the MFT3 table. When I make stuff like jigs and so in the workshop, I often find my self running from one end to the other, as my engineers vice is in an other room by my big workbench, but the other day I had it! Since I have several vices laying around, I decided to dedicate one to my MFT3 workbench, like this the running can come to an end and I can focus on the work. I had an engineers swivel base, clamp on vice that I found good for the project, as it ...

Systainer router table #3: Adding a fixed base

12-01-2020 11:40 PM by mafe | 6 comments »

Systainer router tableadding a fixed base. The China base arrived, so I could make a fixed mounted base.This will make it no more than a click, to put the router on the table. Crazy world, 4.99 GBP / 6.5 USD / 40 DKK, including shipping – no wonder the Western economy are falling apart… Had to wait two weeks, but that’s more than fair at that prize.Even comes in a nice box… It’s a plastic base, yes so not as solid as the metal base, but it does not matte...

Festool fence and rail dogsupdates to the workshop.

At first I just gave it a simple swivel base, using a bench dog to keep it together. Scrap piece from a vac...

Systainer router tabledust extraction and more… Last time when I finished the build and wrote the blog, I knew I could not fool my self… I wrote that the systainer should take the dust… Well I were fully aware that if I used it inside, I would have a lot of dust every were, so I decided to solve it right away. So here it is, fully hosed up, for routing.One hose on the work surface and one under the table, on the router, suction here provided by my small Makita battery vac. Here...
