Hey Lj’s Wanted to let you know what I’ve been doing.

Posted a video of this router table which houses my new 3.5 hp Bosh router for hardwoods. It’s been planned for awhile . Bought a reconditioned router from CPO Outlets as I have other tools I purchased. Tested it worked, put it in a box for a year or so. Went to use it to make the table and it quit. Checked with CPO although I figured it was probably a lost cause. But they really blew me off. They lost a customer. From now on New which is what is in the table now!

Posted a video on YouTube. I’m getting better but feedback helps. so comment and like. PLEEEZE LOL!

My apologies….The pictures are right side up in the files. Haven’t had the problem when using the camera. These are from my Galaxy Note 4.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

Thanks for checking me out

Looks like a good table you have there. You should be able to tackle a lot of jobs with that size hp router too. Your shop still looks cold. isn’t it warming up there yet?

Great addition Tom. I like the fact you have plenty of room around it for longer stock.
And you proved it again, one can’t never have enough clamps !!

Best,
Serge

Hey Dave,

Although we’ve suffered the Polar vortex It’s not a whole bunch different that when I lived in and around Chicago. Just melts faster a little further south. I’m near the Iowa border!

Thought about your statement. I’ve a lot of fluorescent and now some LED lighting. The ceiling is a reflective insulating plastic. Which might visually be cooler. also the floor is old concrete. Didn’t remove/replace before rebuilding. Last is a big window, now holding ac and limiting the light. So even my natural light is cooler.

Spring time Wooo woo! I work outside on my pallet bench as much as possible. Free dust collection and air quality. as well as lighting!

Oh yeah I installed a forced air furnace when I rebuilt my little barn. Can work year round in comfort, albeit expensive???
