Q&A:

pizzalover asked how to use a router table? Fixed base router or pluge base router?

Which one can be used with the router table? Or both? Thans for help!

And got the following answer:

Some router tables will only work with a fixed base. You have to be careful which one you purchase. Read carefully.

Router tables vary greatly in price. In selecting a table you need to determine what you want to do now and what you may wish to do in the future. The difference in tables is not only the quality of the structure itself, but also the accessories and features that it offers.

As I said in your last question, some routers come with both bases, but are much better quality routers (stronger motors) and more expensive. I’ve listed a few below for you to view.

Both fixed and plunge bases:
Bosch 1/2″ collet $189
Porter Cable 1/4″ collet $210
Hitachi 1/2″ collet $169
DeWalt 1/2″ collet $202

Fixed base:

Skil 1/4″ collet $60
Ryobi 1/4″ collet $60

If you wish to ask anything about the features of specific table or a router, please feel free to contact me via email. I’ll be more than happy to help any way that I can.

Good Luck!

PS: You should first select the router (or several) that you are considering for purchase. Most router tables will come predrilled for certain models of routers. You can always make your own adapter plate, but I don’t whether you want to get that involved right off the bat.

SexyArmyWife asked What is the difference in tools?

OK, i need to get my husband, who is deployed, a router for fathers day, since its cheaper this day than anyother time, i want to buy now, while i can save a few. What is the difference in a PLUNDGE ROUTER and a STATIONARY ROUTER?

Also, when considering BRANDS, which is a durable brand for say the next 3-5 yrs, till he gets ‘permanent’ tools. As he is in the service, we don’t want to buy hundreds of dollars worth of tools , just to have the movers drop them and break them, it happens and I want to wait till later to spend alot on ‘good’ tools.

I also need a circular saw, does the ‘inch’ matter?

and i need a table saw? will a black and decker do?

thanks!

And got the following answer:

A Plunge Router is equipped with with two spring loaded rods that allow you to lower the blade into the wood during the cut. There is normally an adjustable stopping device which sets the maximum depth. A Fixed Base (Stationary) Router does not have this plunge feature, but still allows depth of cut to be preset. If your man is only doing the basics, a Fixed Base will do fine.

The standard size circular saw used by most DIYers is 7 and 1/4 inch. With a good “Combination” blade, you can cut plywood and 2X dimentional lumber in a single pass, or 4X dimentional lumber with passes on four sides. Larger saws are generally not required for the DIYer.

If you are considering a table saw, go for 10 inch or better. This will allow for cuts throught most sheet goods, as well as rip cuts on 2X dimentional lumber. Look for a saw with table extentions and a self-aligning rip fence.

As far as brands are concerned, stay away from cheap store brands. The $25 saw is only good as long as the blade remains on the arbor instead of flying across the room.
Porter-Cable, Delta and Craftsman are all good lower priced models. Dewalt and Makita are good mid priced models. After that you get into pro tools.

While you are thinking power tools, you might want to consider a Compound Miter Saw. This tool allows you to make straight or angled cross cuts on dimentional lumber and trim. It also allows you to make the complex cuts required to install crown molding. Go for at least a 10 or 12 inch model. For added capacity, a Sliding Compound Miter Saw gives you added reach for cutting planks and laminate flooring without having to flip the work over.

I hope this helps. God Bless our men in uniform.

[email protected] asked Buying Woodworking Tools?

Could anybody point me in the right direction with regards to building a workshop. I would like to know which tools I should buy first e.g. a table saw, band saw, etc.

And got the following answer:

Well, this will depend a lot on exactly what you intend to do. And, knowing exactly what you are going to do is not possible, because once you try something else, you need tools for it. For a general wood shop, Id suggest these, in this order,a) 10 inch Tablesaw, contractor style, or cabinet saw, NOT a benchtop model.b) Equally important is a good quality blade for that saw, a combination blade will get you started, look to a freud or forrest blade.c) A miter saw, sliding compound miter is best, check out the Makita LS1013, or Hitachi also makes a good one (and again, another good blade is important). d)Router with 1/2 inch collet, bits to go with it,and if you can afford it, a table mounted router is priceless. e) a bandsaw, Jet Delta and Grizzly all make good ones in the 14 inch models.f)A planer (I have a Ridgid 13 inch planer, its a workhorse).g) a drillpress.h)a good scroll saw, stay away from any of the ones under $200, I really like Dewalt.i)a wood lathe, youll be amazed at the fun this tool will be. j) a disc sander, 12 inch would be nice, and if you can afford it, a combination belt/disc sander is even better,k) a jointer, stay away from benchtop models.l)a thickness sander, the Performax is great. Many of those tools need some type of dust collection, so a dust collector should be one of the top priorities as well.
Some necessities I didnt mention are equally important, like clamps, you never can have to many of them,a good square, straightedge,and tape measure, hand tools like drills, sanders,etc. Most important…. a pair of safety glasses, good old fashioned common sense, and all the other necessary PPE.

rmlowrie asked how do I build a router table?

I have a DeWalt 621 plunge type router, and I want to convert it into a mounted device on a router table. I cannot find any plans online so if anyone can help me with this that would be great. My goal is to convert some of my hand power tools into desktop, or bench/standalone work tools: plunge router into a router table; my skil saw into a table saw.
