I recently have made friends with our new Priest. I found out that he is very interested in woodwork. So I invited him to my shop,he was interested in finding out about useing a router. He said he had a router and a table,but didn't know how to put them to gather. So on his day off (Monday) as he works Sundays He cam bye with both router and table.
As you can see the fence was a diaster,no ajustment to speak of and unsafe. I just started over from scratch. Also they had some small little brackets to hold the router to the table...I replaced them with 5/16 socket head screws that screw into the router base.
they hold it firm.
I also drilled and taped for a starter pin for odd shaped pieces.
Added some pices to clamp the table to the bench
Then made the fence.that is ajustable and with dust collection.
It will also accsept a feather board.
It is small but will get him started, He will teach me to do some Relief Carving. Thats something that has always intrested me.
All Though the router is a small Ryobe with only a 1/4" collet and a 1" hole in the table at least he will get the idea of how it works. I am eager to show it to him next week, hope he will like it.
