    Stupid question...

    I have been eyeing up the cut line wondering if it's too big for filler...

    Stupid question...

    How long do you need to be woodworking before you stop periodically forgetting to allow for the kerf of the blade? Been staring at my latest thing trying to figure why it now doesn't fit and... facepalm.

    Triton routers for under a table - Quick TRA query

    Having lived with the TRA001 for a few weeks now, and having considered this mod, I can't see why people would do it. The automatic lock is frankly a massive boon for bit changes. Sure, slightly annoying that you have to power off etc. but better than fumbling around under the table, in my view...

    Does it have the hole for the lifter-arm?

    Triton routers for under a table - Quick TRA query

    RE: fence, I'm not sure yet. I think I was attracted by the simplicity of the two rails on the side (in terms of building the table) but in hindsight and seeing the way the higher end fences move (like in this...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RL7QrGLNmKE) i've no doubt it will be plenty fine...

    Triton routers for under a table - Quick TRA query

    have just gone through this process with a TRA001, some UKJ components and a homemade table. generally speaking pretty happy with it all, and the TRA001 is a great router... I can't imagine doing a lot of handheld work with it though because it weighs an absolute ton. i've got a mixed view on...

    This price is OTT

    I have a very budget dust extractor thing (dust commander on top of a tub that goes to cheap vacuum cleaner) and a very budget hose to go with it. It works fine when attached to a static machine; but when I was routing the hole for the insert on the router table recently, that hose was snagging...

    My homemade router table

    Well I'm calling v1 of this table done. It's in and have done a first test cut with new 'Cavetto' bit from Wealdon. I put some threaded inserts in to the table top so the insert is attached, and put some smaller metal washers beneath the grub screws so hopefully that will hold up. I have not...

    My homemade router table

    After a fair bit of head scratching and a little bit of fettling to the table top, the router is attached and test fitted in. Left to do is mark and cut the hole for the lifter handle, rout and insert something beneath the levelling grub screws, attach the plate fully to the top and then...

    Best Practice and advice for making up small picture frames

    Interesting that using an actual mitre saw hasn't been recommended once... are they just not accurate enough?

    Which Wi-Fi mesh?

    I've used Draytek routers for years and when they brought out their mesh, I went for it, to replace a Netgear Orbi system. The Orbi was mostly faultless and there was no good reason to switch. Draytek stuff is very unforgiving but finally after a few weeks of tweaking I've got it working well...

    My homemade router table

    Thanks Mike. I did enquire with a local fabricator about having something like that plate in the infinity tools kit made up.. but tbh your way sounds easier!
