    router table-tannewitz-extension wing

    i just finished this extension wing for my tanney U with router drop in

    the size of the top is 24"x42"x1 3/4" it's made from a bunch of different woods-

    showing how angle iron is fixed to saw- top is screwed to angle iron

    there are two threaded inserts for the knobs that tighten the fence down fixed in the table top


    the drop in is 5/8" thick-it's 5/16" billy webb laminated to 5/16" birch -one grain going one way the other going ninety degrees the other -billy webb on the top

    the aluminum inserts are 1/4"

    showing the simple lift i use to adjust bits up are down

    i really like the way this feels--solid


    rounding off the sharp corners

    Looks like it fits right in your shop, Alex. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but straightforward and made to get work done. Your shop is a classic example of a craftsman's shop. And what you build there proves it.

    That looks great Alex. One of a kind for sure.

    As a bonus, you can use it to cut limes on Friday afternoons for cocktails once the tools have all been shut down.

    thanks all-
    some answers-
    vaughn-no bells no whistles-don't need em-i live a short block from the railroad yard.

    larry-no gas filled shock-just a tube with a threaded rod-highland hardware in atlanta sold these at one time-i added the little wooden crank handle.

    glenn-yes that is a rock-a stone-i keep one on each machine-it's a safety thing.

    jeff- why wait until friday-this is texas.

    alex--?

    ken- it's like baseball - what ever works for you-how so, well first the stones should mean something to you are else they're just rocks-they should not be so big that they're awkward -they will have to be moved often but this will become second nature after awhile-(like throwing your neck tie over your shoulder, if you work in a neck tie-((i'm just speculating- iv'e never worked in a neck tie ))-)--anyway right before you turn on the machine you put your hand on the stone,if you have to move it then do it now.
    an old apache in new mexico told me how to do this,he also said to put the stones next to your head at night for headaches-i don't have headaches so iv'e never tried that but i do keep a stone on each machine,such as

    ok the rock is it for a reminder that you need safty gear when yu move it off the saw or tool? and as for the highland hardware adjuster,,do they have a specific name for it or just router adjuster?
