Default MFT 3 / OF1010 router table

Hi

This is how I made a small router table addition to my MFT3 installing the OF1010.
It does not take much to alter your router and table to make it work. As the design is now it's only allowed to take bits up to 18mm since I'm using one of the 19mm holes already in the MFT for the collet. The thickness of the table-top gives some limited depth but I made this just for small routing jobs.

First I took off the base-runner and drilled three holes lined up with the threaded holes on the base of the router. I then use three countersunk M6 screws to be able to fit it to the table:

Whilst the base-runner was off I used it as a template for marking where to drill my table-top. Once again 6mm countersunk holes. And when the router is fixed it looks like this from above:

From below it looks like this:

I also made a small fence with a DC-port. The fence is adjustable thanks to the tracks that are ofcourse lined up with the holes of the MFT. This way I can put the fence on whatever side of the router I want:

Hope this post will stay on this forum? It got removed on another forum.

Thanks

No danger of your post being taken down here!

The only criticism I would have is that the plunge depth of the 1010 is rather limited so this will have limited capability. The 1400 has a greater depth range, but the collet might contact the bottom of the table. The through the machine dust collection will be limited.

For what it can do, I don't see any problem. For bits greater than 19mm in diameter, a more conventional router table is still needed.

Very clean installation, a reminder of how simple things can be.
