Wise Buys: Rev Up Your Router Table

MLCS 32" Combo T-Track/Miter Track, #9859

Editor test-drive:

I always have extruded aluminum T-track on hand because I build a ton of jigs. It's so versatile. And I wouldn't own a router table without it or combo track, because they're ideal for guiding and securing these accessories: feather boards, stops, safety guards, and a miter gauge. The combo track (miter U-channel and T-slot side-by-side) is perfect because all those accessories work in it. Trust me, buy extra lengths of both -- you'll find yourself using it for a lot more than routing.

Please be aware the the switch is NOT UL listed (nor listed by any other agency that does certification) nor or there any electrical capacities (amps, volts) noted on the box or on the switch itself. I wrote to Rockler about this and really did not receive an acceptable reply. Other companies make switches that are listed by UL, etc.

I have mine plugged into a foot switch. Take my foot off the switch and it stops. No need to reach under the router, or take your hands or eyes off the work piece.

I prefer this power safety switch over any other I have seen. I have used it and it give the operator the ability to shut the power tool off safely without having to let go of the project. This helps prevent a possible an injury from kick-back or a damaged project piece. More control equals more safety.

I mounted this switch on my table with a slight modification. The under side of my table is boxed for dust collection so I routed the output cord through a handi-box recep on the out side and then into the enclosure to accept the router cord. I can now turn my dust collector on/off along with my router.
