Work Mate Router Table

This is was the first webpage I made and my first tool design that did not work very well as the top warped due to I used two different material and did not have on one side the same as the other :(

I have since built a new plastic and aluminum table top and fence system and hope to post images of it soon..

Below is my work prints

 

My work prints they not a exact copy of my table but what I used to make mine.

The split fence side is different  along with holes and slots, the materials sizes are correct..

Here is some more pictures of the router table and my shop (the driveway) hehehe

MKIII Sharpening Machine I have almost finished building a LV style MKII \ Lap Sharp sharpening system.. I call it my MK III, the total cost so far is about $70, I used a 1/3HP GE motor and some Pillow Blocks, a Jet Lathe 8" Face Plate with a 5/8" shaft and some pulleys.. So far I have only flatten blade backs and it works super. I have clad the plywood with a sheet of SS metal and will build or buy a tool rest soon.. You can view the images and description..
