Try again to make a compact Router Table. I had the full size router table and that is the green top in the photo and the 2 hp Sears attached to insert about 10×10. Now in my blog and future I will need to give up my router station, so my quest for another table. This is a version from Shipwright and my adaption. Features…the table drops between the rails at 10 inches apart. The height of the table is adjustable and even at the end of the Shopsmith, better for use. For fence adjustment I will use the Shopsmith fence, there is a 7 inch board between the fence and the clamp block. This gave me speed of mounting and detaching the whole arrangement. 3 parts. the table, the router and insert, and the fence. I did use the Shopsmith support leg to hold up the extension table. each of the side plywood ends were 6×10. later I will add the dust collection mount to the fence. I have in my projects another Shopsmith router table and an outfeed table. Check it.

Looks good. I finally upgraded mine with the PowerPro headstock and the dual tilt so I don’t use mine much anymore but it sure worked well when I did and it is still a little quicker to set up than the headstock-under-the-table shaper setup.
Hope it works well for you.
