Router Table Insert

Several months ago, in order to reduce the footprint of my tools, I decided to build a router table into my table saw.

I had a Skill 1820 2hp plunge router I rarely used since I had purchased my Porter cable router with dual bases (fixed and plunge).

I also had a scissor jack that I had bought more than a decade ago. It was still in its original unopened box. I’m not even sure now why I bought it in the first place but I figured it would work well as a lift mechanism for this project.
