woodpeckers router table free hand guard woodpeckers router table free hand guard No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

one of our members dw (desert woodworker) posted this a couple months ago,when i saw it i went and ordered immediately. it wasn’t yet available and i just got it yesterday.it is made to attach to woodpeckers lifts with two threaded knobs but can be retrofitted to any lift by simply drilling and threading a couple holes. a real simple guard that eliminates a starter pin.has a 2-1/2” opening that you can just plug your shop vac into.trying it out id say it sucked up a good 98% percent of the dust.cost is 39.99 not bad for what it does for free hand routing. i wish i had this years ago.

I’ll tell you if yours is as good as mine when it arrives by the promised date somewhere in July.

looks like a great addition for not that much money. How hard is it to take off the clear guard? I would have one application where it wouldnt work.

super easy buddy,just two knobs that lock it down to the table.but to remove the clear guard means removing the screws that hold the jig together.you could though make your own shroud that is taller if needed!this one is really deisned for 3/4 stock!

Looks good, pottz. I’d tell you that you could have made one using the Shaper Origin, but that would be rude.

Ah, what the heck. Get an Origin, pottz. You know you want one.

It’s all relative. You’ve already spent $4K, so what’s another three? Do I have to spell everything out?

I just got to use mine the first time today and it was really good for the dust collection part of it. I really needed to make it taller. I was doing 1 1/4” cutting boards and it made it but not much. A question, I have a 20-year-old table and plate. Are you able to mount both screws? My base plate has only two screw holes so I can only screw one down. It holds

It might take a year to get it but that Shaper Origin seems like an expensive but worthwhile investment. My laser engraver is just a poor substitute for a CNC machine, which I have no room for.
