Chaps\esses - I am meaning to pick this up and was fully intending to do so and catch up with the drawings this weekend - but with the theft\break in of the workshop - I'm having to side track and get a few sections of the garden perimeter sorted and finish off the door and it's frame.
So in all likelihood there will be a little delay on this.
I'm just building my first router table and in my searching have come across this forum - these plates you're making are exactly what I've been looking for. Is there still time to join the list or have I missed the boat?
(If not then please could you put me down for an Al plate with Al rings, with one of the rings having a shoulder to take the 30mm guide bushes?)
btw, I might be misreading your diagram and notes, but I'm not sure that a 9.5mm hole for the lead-on pin is correct - isn't that the outside diameter of the part of the pin that protrudes above the plate, but that there's a shoulder and the part of the pin that fits into the plate is narrower?
I prefer the screw-in style myself but since I can't find any such pins at the moment would prefer no holes for the pin - I'd drill and tap it to fit whatever I eventually find (the brass pin that comes with woodpecker plates is very nice (http://www.woodpeck.com/precisionrouterlift.html#70) but can't find it in the UK, and it's probably got some dodgy US thread )
Really impressed that you're putting this together Dibs. Sorry to read about the break in.
I'm about a week out from having the 'shop secured up. So will pick it up then. By way of a test - I'm having some s\s door plates lasered up and as the quotes are coming from a few different suppliers, should have a few more suppliers to get a quote from for the inserts.
Update: Now that the shop has a roof and windows\doors and is more secure - I will be picking this back up. I'll be going thru the thread and figuring out where we were and then move forward with this and adjusting the list etc.
Right - gone thru both threads (will be making a cuppa shortly & resting the brain) and have come to the following conclusion,
- 2 types. 1 Aluminum (8mm plate & 3mm rings) and 1 M\S (6mm plate & 3mm rings).
- AL rings can be used with M\S plate.
- 3 "rings" to be supplied, 30mm inner hole, 50mm inner hole & 0 hole (referred to as disc).
- 12"x9" plate with 90mm hole in the middle - 3.1mm deep shoulder stepping up to 110mm. Allowing 3mm thick, 110mm dia rings\discs to be used.
- 3 x 4mm holes in the shoulder (which will allow for an M5 thread - which most folk will do themselves)
- holes in the rings\discs to be done by most folk themselves.
- 2 lead in pin holes (plain)
We are way past 10 sets for each - so will those interested look at the following link (spreadsheet),
and let me know if they are still interested - and if the specifics are correct? I've sort got my head round the size, holes, etc. so will be going over the drawings and making the necessary alterations etc.
