One of the machines that can be used the most in the home carpentry shop is the milling machine, and once we see everything that can be done with it, we still discover the advantages of having a milling table or a small router for wood working. And then we think "how I haven't discovered this before" (nothing to say if you already have a lot of experience as a woodworker). On this page you will see how to make a home router table, or at least you will see all the projects that I carried out to manufacture mine, from the table structure to the lateral guide, also including my lifting system for the column milling machine.
Perhaps this is not a system as precise as a tupi that we can buy, but this home milling table gives me quite a good result. Of course, with this homemade woodworking machine sometimes we cannot get the milling cutter to the correct height, so be sure to take a look at the CMT milling cutter extensions. In addition, these table milling machines generate a lot of dust that will make the carpentry shop very dirty and what is worse can harm our health, so do not neglect the vacuum system.
On my YouTube channel you can see how to make another model of a home milling table, and I hope to write the entry of that home woodworking machine soon. As soon as it does, it will also appear on this page. But while I leave the video.
It is an easier woodworking machine to make, with a much easier cutter lifting system and a pivoting side guide that seems very simple but effective.
Also, to make things easier I use the wooden frame of a stretcher table. although this brings the disadvantage that it is light, so it is necessary to put that or anchor the structure of the milling table so that it does not move while we mill wood.
