  2. This table was designed and built before I had a CNC that would have made it simple to cut out the parts. I relied on my router table and a little engineering to make a jig to hold the wood and pass through the stationary router bit in varying ellipses.Made it from cherry. The base boards intersect with the wide boards dovetailing into the narrow piece. A slight round over on the outside edges of the base mimics the elliptical edge of the top above. This table is also unfinished. Mostly it was a table to verify that my ellipse cutting jig would work. It was used immediately after assembly next to a recliner where my x-wife used to sit. I've sold the recliner and she didn't take the table when she left. 4D
  3. Can anyone tell if they have ever removed the anti-backlash nut from a jessem router Mast-R-Lift table. Mine is stripped and I’m trying to remove it. Called Jessem but they have not returned my calls. Email them and they referred me to a later model Mast-R-Lift. Which was no help it is configured different then my model. Enclosed is a picture of the one I have
  4. I have spent some time this year reworking my shop arrangement. Started with a 60 amp service & this allowed me to move the compressor into an attached shed then hard piped it into the shop. Install a small dust system in the shed and connected my miter saw, belt/spindle sander & a port for my ROS. I passed on things to other people that could use them & got rid of things I haven't or won't need. Consolidated everything to the 3 walls in the shop. I realized during the process that walking around my work bench to get to the other side of the shop just wasn't working anymore, time to downsize & go mobile. The plan is to build a set up to house my table saw and router table in one mobile unit. I have had a good conversation with @Gunny about the do's & don'ts with regards to this set up, "Often suffer from paralysis by analysis in getting a project started" Thanks Gunny. I have the base started with some 4x4 that my Dad had stored, straight and dry. Cut some lap joints, dry fit & ready to screw and glue. Notches in the middle are for the uprights & the cuts were made, after the pics, on the end lap joints for the same.
  5. Looking to buy a new router for my router table. Narrowed this down to 3 choices. I'm not really concerned about the router base as I will just be using the motor in a JessEm router lift. I like the Bosh but leaning towards the Hitachi with a low noise rating. Any help with reliability and performance is appreciated. All routers are over 2hp. https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DW618-Electronic-Variable-Speed-Fixed-Base/dp/B00006JKXB https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-Variable-Speed-1617EVS-4-Inch-Collets/dp/B00004TKHV/ref=asc_df_B00004TKHV/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=&hvpos=&hvnetw=o&hvrand=&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583726541131793&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002ZZWXI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A29PHU0KPCGV8S&psc=1
  6. Nice article featuring Serge Duclos, a very clever guy and shop tips contributor. https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/discover/woodworking/2021/january/shop-made-versatile-router-table-sled?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=RouterSledArticle&fbclid=IwAR2MPb0GDd-zSyNSI3nbvEoTmnrse70Uy4nyr40CUF8cPETYEcGR1hBFunw
  7. Just a small amount of woodworking. Maire has had a print laying around for years waiting for me to frame it. So, I finally did. Using some walnut that was in my scrap bin I made a small frame, ordered the mat on-line, and got some glass cut at Lowes (a story told in another post). Anyway, she was happy though I though maybe I should have used a lighter color wood. The pics show the profile I cut. One of the things I like about frames is using the router table, probably my favorite tool to use in the shop. The second shows the frame in the web clamp, something that hasn't been sued in quite a while...it's also been a while since I've made any frames. Then the completed print. BTW, I used a place called Matboard and more for the mat, and they really do a nice job. I usually rail at the cost of shipping ($10 in this case) and here they really earn their keep. The packaging job they did was truly great and done to protect the fragile matboard from being damaged. If you need one, I highly recommend them.
  8. I'm just getting started in this hobby, but one of the things I know I'll need for the projects* I want to build is a router and router table. My funds are modest, but I'd rather save my pennies for another month or two and get something which will be good for the long haul than just get whatever's on sale at the local big box. I do want quality, but I'm not big into bells and whistles. I generally prefer used and US-made to Cheap Chinese Crap, but good older equipment may be hard to find at a reasonable price and it's possible that I'll want or need some features that the older models may not have. Can anyone make recommendations about what has worked for them and what they might advise for me? * (Immediate projects: General home repair carpentry and cabinet making. Longer term, want to build some custom furnishings. There's a plan for a DIY grandfather clock up on the Shopsmith website that I'm salivating over, but that will be a couple of years down the road.)
  9. Anyone using a sled like this? I like the clear plexi but wonder about using these when doing vertical router table cuts say for lock miter joint or drawer joints? https://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/vertex.html This came to mind when I received an Infinity Tools email boasting their vertical sled. Looked online and really don't see plans for building one at all. Infinity's sled is here https://www.infinitytools.com/vertical-router-sled-4576 I also figure that doing vertical cuts like this will require a sacrificial backer board to prevent tearout which in turn reduces the width of the board these jigs will allow. So just how well would these work? Interestingly I couldn't find any plans to make one of these and I can't see it being that difficult. Any ideas?
  10. These have been out for awhile and came on sale a while back ,so I had to try them out. First picture is the way I usually run trim through the router table, and then the new way. I like the new ones, they do what they are advertised to do. Herb
  11. Forgot about doing this the other day. Did it last winter with mainly scraps I had laying around my shop. Only thing I actually bought for especially for it was the gray paint.
  12. I received the Woodcraft Monthly sale e-Flier a couple of days ago. If you've been looking for a router lift they have the Jessem 02301 lift at a pretty good price; $149.99 Not the top Jessem model, but still a very nice lift especially for the money..

  13. Like many I have a router on the one wing of the TS. And yes it gets in the way sometimes but for larger work it works well. Having been given a Bosch 1604 I saw opportunity in the form of a mini router table. Scanning the shop I found a nice place to stow it away, in the form of a drawer. Lost 3 small drawers but they were only 9 inches wide smaller stuff I can displace, albeit remembering where I did so may be an issue. To make the router lift I am using a small Lab Scissor lift. About 4 inch square with more than enough lift for this task. Put in drawer slides to guide the router assembly smoothly up and down. Had to run a 1/4 threaded rod through the front to lock the sled in place after setting the height with the lower adjustment wheel. So far the drawer is made, sits level and has 4 sets of 150lb drawer slides to support it. The sled is made, all the kinks worked out and it now awaits a wheel to attach to the lift and a switch, box and some wiring. While I know 4 inch DC ports and systems are all the rage my shop has 2 1/2 and it works, not going to go through a major refrb at this time. So the port will be for a DC hose but inverted as the side of the drawer has 1/2 clearance so nothing can stick out. Only issue I have not got a working design for is the mechanical locks to keep the drawer from sliding back in while in use. Have two ideas about it that some mock ups will be in order to see how they work. It's coming, but at my typical pace, kinda slow.
  14. I am not in the market for a router table, I sold mine last fall, don't need one, but I just thought I'd share my amazement with what Shopsmith has available for our machines. I did not know they made a router table, very cool. Anyone own one? @Artie ? http://www.shopsmith.com/ownersite/catalog/rm_routertable.htm
  15. Well here we go again. new set of Drawers for my Jessem Router table.
  16. I have been working on upgrading my machine stands with drawers to store things associated with that machine. My latest is the Sliding router table stand.
