  • "Rolling Mortise jig" for router table

    Good day

    I wanted to make it long time ago and finaly after making the new router table, I made the "rolling mortiser"...

    I did not make any project yet just a test that you can see on the last 2 pics but it's working nice.

    The setting might look very long (on the pics) but actually it's very short. The "Fence stops" are set only one time and the "Roller unit stops", two times (one for left and one for right) but it takes seconds.

    On the test, I cranked the router up in increments of 1/8" but I felt that I could lift more for each pass.

    Regards

        Niki, your the master at making jigs, and I personally never get tired of checking out your work, they're fantastic.

        Now maybe you have said the answer to this in the past and I either forgot or missed it, but do you ever make furniture, toy boxes, bird houses, guitars, boats, etc.

        If yes, how about a picture or two. I'd bet your pretty good w/inlay.

        Also, where the hell do you store all of your jigs, my god you must have a hundred or even 200 of them????
        Great Link for a Construction Owner/Tradesmen, and just say Garager sent you....

          Thank you Garager

          Yes I did say it before and you can see my reply here (with picture)

          From all the "list" of "do you ever make furniture, toy boxes, bird houses, guitars, boats, etc.", I'm building only furniture (home and garden)

          I store the jigs in the garage, on shelves or around the walls...and they are not so many

          If you'll go through the posts of the "Table saw jigs", you'll see many of the Oak that is on the pictures being cut.

            Thank you, Niki!! Some how you always seem to know the project problems I'm having and come up with really good solutions that I can even afford!
            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

              Thank you so much

              I'm glade that the post came on-time for you.

              Well, if you lived in a country that you can not find even a T-track....

              You will not find in my jigs any special hardware....usually, I use very simple parts that you can find in the local hardware shop...even in Poland

                You seem to have an analytical bent way over my head, but I would like to know more about the router mechanism in your illustration. I am referring to the cranking mechanism.

                  Have a look at this post, it will give you the general idea.

                  I made the part with the threaded screw separate because I'm using also a dowel rod for the "Pedal".

                  If you don't have intentions to use a "pedal, you can install the T-nut (or screw insert) directly on the lateral board. Be sure that the T-nut is installed at the center of the collet line to avoid side forces.

                  If your router table is of the "cabinet" type, have a look here
