hi,
I know that system, they are usually used to make a camera slider, but they can also work for the fence.
I look forward to seeing pics with your progress!

I now estimate 700EU of purchases still to do. My monthly budget towards this project will be just about 70EU, plus whatever additional I can gather.

Photos of my actual build will thus only be early next year. Sorry!

For now I will continue to communicate my final planning and purchases.

Thanks

By the way, here in SA the extrusions etc is extensively promoted for building your own 3D printers / mortises, routers etc. Later when embarking in building your 3D Router I might relook in using same components

Still concerning the tops. Using the planned alumiium extrution, I will be forced to change the plan to allow for overhang of the tops both ends. I have decided to stick to the length of 815mm, thus I will have to resize the rest of the length parts for the body of the workshop as appropriate.

I plan to border the tops with a 10mm strip of hardwood.

And I plan to allow for the top for the saw to tilt open towards the back to allow easy access to the saw.

And I am still going to cover the tops with acrylic.

The miter channels will be cut after allowing for all of the above

More I cannot plan to change concerning the tops. Lol

Hi Suso,

I have a question based on the following (downloaded from one of the showcases) i.e.

http://paoson.com/uploadPics/uploads/Example.JPG

Difficult to explain.

I need to know the distance measured from the the top of the closed workshop to the "side top" of the closed router top. i.e the top is 18, +18 for the fence guide, then the gap , then the "side top" of the router top.

Hope this makes sense.

HI Wieger,
this user has used a router similar to the one you are going to use, maybe it will help you.
