          Kevin, you're a scavenger supreme! Nicely made .

          How on earth did you get the mitre guide and the router plate? Surely they're worth more than $63 in their own right.

          There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

            Sharon, the table top is a Jet Extension table that I got off of e-bay for $15. Gill, the miter itself is the same one that I use on my table-saw. I went with a full size miter track so that I can use the same stuff on both the router table and the table saw. I used to work part-time at Sears, the router plate was getting thrown away (gotta love discontinuations) so I grabbed it. The only things I really had to buy special for the table were the mini t-tracks and the star knobs (for the fence hold-down).
            Lucky, you're on your own as far as building one, hehehe. This was a year in the making.

              Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

              I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

              Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
