    Freud Router Table modification

    I got this Freud Router Table on sale with 3hp router and all. I hated the three position fence though. I also hated the inserts. Other inserts that I could find would not fit it. The inserts that were provided were either proud of the table or just under so I made my own out of lexan.

    For the track I just took a track and cut it in half, then used my router and ran it down a straight edge to route out the table for the track to fit in. I glued and screwed the track down. My only mistake was the over cut at the front as you can see. i will fill that in with something a little later. Works great and I don't have to unscrew the adjustment knobs to do gross adjustments.

    All total cost me about 20 dollars and 30 minutes.

    Looks like a good modification. Bondo works great for filling odd holes in melamine-covered MDF. Epoxy also works.

    When I made my drill press table, I messed up the slots (repeatedly), but I had a lot more space to fill, so I used wood.
