Add a Fence to your Router Table or Table Saw

Add a Fence to your Router Table or Table Saw

I picked up a job site table saw a few years ago and decided to combine it with a router table that would slot into the extension arm of the saw. On top of that I wanted a multipurpose fence that would function for the saw as well as the router table. The whole unit can be folded up and wheeled into a corner when not in use. The router table and fence also get a dust collection system. Part one features the router table and part two covers building the fence.

    I’ve been considering something similar in my shop – Well done man, great video!

    What software are you using to animate the beginning? This video is a very well put together.

    Why didn’t you use your router to machine the aluminium? Those tungsten router bits are fine for ali.

    To help minimize chip out, don’t let the tool explode out of the back. Slap a scrap of wood and finish the cut into it.

  6. peter on February 16, 2023 at 5:28 am

    Very nice work. A table saw has been on my shopping list for some time and your solution ticks a lot of boxes – I might follow suit. Did you lower the speed or change the blade on your bandsaw to cut the aluminium?
    ps. for 8:00, would a sacrificial piece of wood between the jig and the cutter for that first cut not prevent the blowout?

    nice video bro

  8. blueknight on February 16, 2023 at 5:37 am

    If you put a scrap piece in front it wont tare out the good piece…

    I always see people cutting their t-slot.

    What I did was use the 2"×2" (10 series. 2020, but not the metric 2020) for my fence. I used one 40" and two 16". I put two 16 on bottom, and the one 40" on top. (It made 2" thick, 4" tall fence.) And it allowed me to use the 2 bottom 2×2 extrusion for as dust collection by attaching hose on the ends. Now i didn’t need an under, or rear dust collection.

    In your case, I’d have just capped the circ saw side of the 2020 and pulled dust from one side.

    The nice thing about the 2020 is the weight and stability.

    As far as the slide/drop in nut issue…

    I’d drill through the track to put nut on other side of extrusion. But even better is to tap the track on the other side.

    I wish I could do 3d printing… I’ve had too many concussions to absorb that type of thing.

    I love t-slot extrusion … I’ve used it for years, and it’s just amazing for everything.

    But good 10-32 and ¼-20 tap, and aluminum tap magic goes a long way.

    Let the drinking game begin. Maybe benifitial to tape the extrusion ends at the router cutout. Not sure if using the extrusion as dust collection channel is viable.

    Do you have any link for all these products?

    Do you have any link goal all these products?

  14. R H on February 16, 2023 at 5:49 am

    Good stuff

  15. P F on February 16, 2023 at 5:49 am

    What would you say was approximate cost for all the materials used to build this? Great job btw. I love the industrial look of it too.

  16. Rokas Raulinaitis on February 16, 2023 at 5:54 am

    about tearing up, place sacrificial board on good side, clamp it. holes will be buttery smooth

  17. IcanCwhatUsay on February 16, 2023 at 5:59 am

    2:14 your step-up from Drill A to B was too large, had no lube and too high of RPM for that size drill. That is why that didn’t work to plan.

  18. Zahid Javaid on February 16, 2023 at 6:01 am

    Which type of Aluminum Extrusion you are using for this fence?? Is it 3090??

    Beautiful work my friend with brilliant design & functionality! This build (both videos) were the 1st I’ve seen of your’s but won’t be the last… Subscribed and begun some binge watching lol.

    Must also commend you on the overall video presentation. 👌 Pure overall quality my friend IMO! Great visuals. Perfect audio. Great format… I prefer your method – voice over with while work is happening. Thank you for not having annoying background music! 🙏

    Just casually waitIng for this channel to blow up

  23. Noise Hatch on February 16, 2023 at 6:15 am

    Hi, thank you for the great video. The link you gave for the ‘2 x Angle Brackets for 1.5" Extrusions (8020 brand)’ is incorrect (it links to some other part). Could you please furnish me with the link to the brackets?

  24. Ehud Gavron on February 16, 2023 at 6:15 am

    So… AWESOME work. You really put a lot of detail in your work, and in the video. Secondly, I like your dry style of just calling it like it is. You’re no carny — great work and great vid!

  25. BossSpringsteen69 on February 16, 2023 at 6:16 am

    The best shop video i’ve seen in awhile. 3D Handyman saved the day for me. An answer to my problem. Thank you, 3D Handyman.

    Loved the animation – sweet build with minimal tools used – thumbs up! Subbed.
