My design will be fairly familiar to most of you - the only thing that looks
different is the fence and dust collection system. The router
is a ripper old Hitachi TR-12, 2.5 Hp and plenty of grunt. My dust collection is through 100mm sewer pipe. Works its ass off.
Read about my thoughts on dust collection in thoughts.
Those of you with a keen eye will have noticed in pictures 3 &4 the switch mechanism
is in fact a jet mechanism. Bought this for $50
and was something at the time I thought was expensive - but in retrospect it was money well spent. It's much safer, I can turn it off in a
hurry without reaching underneath the router table - that just has to be safer. Made it myself out of a piece of ring gidgee - a very hard
Australian Native hardwood (actually the hardest!) and a die cast box to keep it all together.
