A solid, heavy duty cast iron table designed for mounting a heavy duty router upside down.This turns the router into a small wood shaper.Because of the 19mm thick mounting section, certain router will have to be fitted with a collet extension to allow cutters to reach the top of the table. Securing the router to the table is by means of 4 clamps that slide into T slots on the underside of the table. This way the router is held in place with clamps around the base and there is no need to drill unsightly holes into the router base. The router collett can easily now be positioned to be concentric with the hole in the table. The cutter height on certain routers can also be adjusted from the top if an access hole is drilled for this purpose. There are 2 x metal rings with different diameters that will cover the opening around the cutter. The table comes with a sliding mitre gauge that is usefull when making coped joints on end grain. Two hold down springs will provide downward pressure. A cast iron dust hood with a 100 mm dust port and an aluminium fence also forms part of the setup.
A good value-for-money disc sander which will be a great asset in any hobbyist's workshop. The item is merely pressed against the revolving disc and a perfectly flat end can be quickly created in this manner. The 300mm disc is driven by a quiet 750W induction motor and any grit sandpaper can be fitted to it by means of spray-on self adhesive glue. Tip!Self adhesive discs can easily be removed complete with their glue by gently warming with a hot air gun before removing. There is also a brake in the form of a lever that you press to bring the disc to a quick stop. The cast iron sanding table is provided with a slot for the adjustable mitre fence, used for end grain sanding. The table tilts from -15⁰ to +45° and is firmly locked in position with heavy duty handles at both ends. The righ half of the disc is covered to prevent accidents. Dust can be extracted from the bottom of the disc via a shroud which ends in a 63mm diameter outlet. A 450mm length of flexible hose is provided with the machine; this has a 60mm diameter sleeve at the end which will connect directly to an extractor. Designed to be placed on a standard height table or workbench.
