I had an OK router table

I was on the watch for a decent router lift and or table but i just dont use the router as much since it was a PIA to adjust it so when woodsmith offered free plans I ordered the router lift so with minimal parts and money i put it together counter top i got for free with plate and all i have around 100.00 in it all no its not perfect but it is an improvement for me

NEXT UP
Is a jig for sanding wheels round … here is the old one

and then the new one

the kerf cuts are at 1 inch intervals NEXT UP
THANKS TO Brian and HTL this will be a huge help in making kerf cut in tires for treads

NEXT UP
Last but not the least a little more organized wood area
i got this for free from cabinet shop near me

as you can see to the right of the fence i needed something as i could not move my fence anymore then 9 inches to right so here is my shelf before

and then after MMMM WONDER HOW LONG IT WILL BE LIKE THIS LOL :<))

thats the quick tour of improvements for my shop i do hope you enjoyed some of them :<)))

I built that same router lift and really love it. I couldn’t locate, locally, the threaded rod but did get something close.

Love the router lift Tony! Something that is lacking in my shop. I’ll have to keep this in mind. Great job!

Tony, anytime you clean up, and make some new jigs/fixtures to make the work easier, and more accurate is a great day in the shop. Those days will pay dividends down the line.

Thanks for sharing.

I think from now on though you may be referred to as a Ted magnet. :-)
