    Congrats on the drill press. Are you designing your own router lift?

    Nice! Yep old cabinets is a great source for great plywood - that stuff is hard to find and expensive if you have to buy it.

    I'm going to try something like this,
    http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/04/21/the-aw-shop-made-router-lift.aspx

    I already had the threaded rod and some solid rods sitting around.
    I'm going to see if I can get away with 1/2" rod instead of the 3/4" that's called for.
    It sure is.
    The cool thing is the guy at the dump remembered throwing a nice piece of birch ply into the dumpster and even climbed in there and got it out for me..

    I hear you... I salvaged some birch ply from shipping crates off the loading dock just this morning!

    I just bought a 3/4"x3' zinc plated steel rod at Tractor Supply for 12 bucks the other day. Got a secret project planned :cool:

    Edit: That is a nice looking lift

    Well now what's Nosmo doing, with a rod! :rolleyes:

    And I agree, that would be really handy to just do it from the top. I also saw this guy.. it tilts, which may be kinda handy... not sure what for.. but...

    I've sort of had my eye on Matthias tilting router lift for some time.
    I really want something that is going to stay square with the top.
    One of the reasons I sold my old Skil router and table was that the height mechanism and clamp would often leave the bit a degree or so off from vertical.
    Once I get the new stuff in place I think I'll do a shop tour thread.
    Everything is crammed into an 8x16 mini-barn.
    It's bigger than Gil's old shop so I can't complain.

    Hey Jup,

    If this keeps up I may have to "help" Jar Jar along a bit.......

    Sorry guys,

    My unheated workshop has been frozen(in carbonite) until this past week when things finally started to warm up around here.

    I've also been busy trying to find a new job.
    I've got a second interview with a place this afternoon though so I'm pretty hopeful that things are going to work out.

    In the interim I have been planning a few things out, such as what's going to happen to Jar Jar.
    Think, opening shot in Ryuhei Kitamura's movie Versus.

    Best of luck on the job Josh. Jar Jar has always irked me but I don't know if samurai zombies might even be too much for him. I was thinking maybe he could just get his head stuck between my neo bars but I was afraid of what that might do to the bars so I leave it in your capable hands. :D

    LOL, Jupiter ! Me, too. :D

    On the other hand, there's the 2011 Toronto After Dark Film "Versus", featuring, among other interesting characters, Uncle Sam with a flamethrower, who might be a fitting adversary for Jar-Jar.:eek:

    The Star Wars universe already contains sufficient characters with "swords".
    The Jedi are really just Samurai carrying around a lightsabre instead of a Katana and Wakizashi.
