I just finished a router table mobile stand. I carries a mid-90s era Jointech cabinet maker system…IPM-1 & fence. I know many folks have have problems with Jointech of late; however, this setup has given me absolutely no problems and it produces easy/flawless dovetails very quickly. I based my design for the stand on plans I found in issue no. 1 of Shopnotes magazine. The stand is mobile thanks to some rather inexpensive locking casters. Wood used was construction grade 2×6 pine. I installed a set of plugs and switch so I can easily turn on/off the router. Setup is rock solid…I’ve loaded cutoff lumber in the bottom tray to add weight/stability. All in all, a simple, useful stand.

looks good and practical. thats a good fence system, I wish Jointech were more responsive to tech support and such which I believe is their culprit.

I agree…they were a very good/responsive local company here in San Antonio. Seems the owner/inventor died a while ago and the company went broke after a years of poor management. Last I heard everything was sold to a storefront organization called iTools. They maintain the old Jointech website and maintain an unattended storefront downtown, but I sure wouldn’t send them any $! Too bad, because their early equipment was well made.

Looks good mountainaxe!!!
I too have the Jointech system, it’s what they call the saw train system, no problems with mine either.
Just amazed every time i use it. That right angle fixture is amazing.
Yes there service is slow, but they do make good on it.
Very happy with system,

Looks like it worked well…I too used construction grade lumber for a variety of tables…

Easy Shop Table

I found that you can get the best lumber by picking the largest size practical (2×10) insted of 2×4’s (that gave me straight, clean lumber when ripped to size)
