  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Kreg PRS5000 router lift and want to replace the Bosch 1617 currently mounted in my router table with something beefier - in the 3-3.25 hp range. Many of the routers on Kreg's compatibility chart are no longer available. Anyone know of a heavy duty router that the Kreg lift will...
  2. Phenolic Router lift extension on the cheap ($165 total)

    New router lift table saw extension done on the cheap $165 total I got my bonus in January so I knew I was getting a tool for my self, money is too tight to buy anything real big But I saw the Jessem Rout-R lift II and decided that 120+ shipping was too good to pass up. I ordered it without...
  3. New Router Table

    I found this table in my copy of "Smart Workshop Solutions" by Paul Anthony. I made a few changes from the article, mainly the switch location and the size of the right side cubby. I moved the switch off to the side below the table itself. Thsi opened up the right cubby and made for more...
  4. Table Saw Extension Wing Router Table

    A router is a very versatile tool in the shop and flipping it over and mounting to a table makes it even more (not to mention increased safety). Since each saw is different (and it's doubtful you also have the same 1997 model of Jet that I do) On this one, rather than focusing on technique, I'd...
  5. Stumpy Nubs Router Lift

    I looked over many DYI plans for router lifts, including shop notes and Matthias Wandle's among others. Stumpy's use of ball bearing slides is the clear winner. See his plans here. Worth the $5. James even puts in a mistake to keep you on your toes. If I were to rebuild this I would beef up...
  6. Router and lift in TS extension

    Completed and operational. Now onto some projects to put it to work.
  7. ArduLift - Arduino controlled router lift

    I thought I would build a lift from available plans, but… Here is a DIY computer controlled router lift that was a really satisfying project. Made for a drop in router table and uses a stepper motor for precision movement. Has an auto zero probe (that thing at the lower left in the first...
  8. DIY Lift for Plunge Router: With Gears

    Always wanted to make one, here it is. Works great. Blog is here for the full story: http://lumberjocks.com/Lsmart/blog/34666 Credit to Matthias at woodgears.ca for gear template and lots of inspiration.
  9. my shop-made router table

    Here's a few pics of my shop made router table. With me being pretty much broke most of the time, I have to use what I have, or can find, a lot of the time. Most of the time I can do pretty decent. Being an electrician that does mainly new commercial construction work helps a lot though. Most of...
  10. A Home for my New Router --- (Router Table)

    I got a new router (Bosch 1617EVSPK) for Christmas so naturally, I needed to give it a good home. I decided that a nice new router table would be the way to go. I quickly planned what I wanted and put the necessary parts on order. This included an Incra 25" joinery package, 27" x 43" top, and...
  11. Obligatory cutting board #1

    My first project. Nobody will be impressed with the complexity of my design or workmanship, but I did learn a few things while making this. It was a lesson in working wood for the pleasure of it. I had starte a much more complicated project involving many small pieces and requiring a lot of...
  12. Router table with DIY lift

    A while back I decided it was time for a new router table. I tore down the table I had and made a router lift. The plan was to make the table right after. Around 8 months passed and the table never happened. There just isn't enough time in the day. I really wanted to make my own from scratch but...
  13. Router Lift

    Bought the plans from Stumpy Nubs for the compact router lift. Took me some time to complete but it was a fun process. I took the advice of Combo Prof and upgraded the screw blocks to 3/4 in ply rather than 1/2 in. I bought a simple router plate insert and used hot glue to level it to my router...
  14. Router table - table saw mount

    decided to mount my homemade router lift in my table saw. I don't currently have the room for a stand alone router table so the table saw wing makes the most sense. I also decided against an adjustable fence. I just didn't really see the need for it, I elaborate more on that in the video...
  15. My First Clock

    I've finally completed this craftsman style clock. I don't know how long it took me, but I'm glad it's done. Had a couple months away from the shop during this project after my son was born. (His 3 older sisters absolutely love him!!) First off, huge thanks goes out to LJ. This site is simply...
  16. $3 ROUTER LIFT

    I have this router for a couple of years and it has been great in the router table except for the rack and pinion drive which keeps getting pluged with dust and jamming up . I thought of buying a router lift but not in the budget and other tools have priority so this is the solution I came up...
  17. Yet Another Router Table

    I have planned a router table of some sort for quite some time. This winter I decided a table saw extension would best fit my needs. I have a 70's vintage Craftsman 12 inch floor saw with three table extensions - one left and two right. For the router extension I removed the table extension...
  18. Router Table With 2 DROs

    Router table with router lift and Incra fence. I designed and built my own router lift then installed it in a portable table of my own design. My brother made the steel table top for me. The lift has a remote digital readout for height and the fence has a digital readout for position. The sides...
  19. FrankenSaw Lives!

    I found a Unisaw advertised as basically new on Craigslist, and it was unusual for a couple of reasons. First, the owner had bought it in 2002 and it had been sitting, unused, in his (climate controlled) basement since it was originally delivered. He'd never even plugged it in. The motor was...
  20. Router Table and Fence | DIY build

    I got my hands on a router lift a while back and I've been wanting to make a router table for it ever since. I finally finished the build of this 36×24 inch table. It's top is melamine, laminated with 3/4 plywood to help keep it dead flat. I also made a custom fence using the same lamination...
