My workshop shares space with the family car. So it's important that all of my power tools be portable and take up as little space as possible. After building the upgraded router table top from issue
No. 85,1 attached the table top to a pair of 2x4's with screws. Then, after removing the top of an adjustable clamping table, I mounted the router table to the clamping table stand, as shown in the photo below. The table is firmly supported by the clamping table base.
The nice thing about the table is it can be raised and lowered to match the task at hand. Best of all, I can remove the router and quickly fold the table up to store it against the wall whenever it's not in use.

Congratulations to Clark Robbins of West Lake, Michigan. His tip on making a micro-adjust for the router fence was selected as winner of the Porter-Cable router just like the one shown at the right. The micro-adjust allows accurate adjustments to be made to the router fence.
To find out how you could win a Porter-Cable router check out the information above. Your tip just might be a winner.
