Kreg Owners' Community

I would like to preface this post by letting you know that I am very pleased with the Kreg Precision Router Table package and Kreg's superior customer support but after using it for three years, I have come up with a few fixes and improvements I would like to share.

1)  Reference Photos A, B, C, & D:

Having purchased this router table with the current new design fence, I have found that the Micro Adjust mechanism is just too sloppy to make precision adjusts when setting up a Lock Miter bit so I machined my own solution using ¾" UHMW plastic and using a micro adjust assembly from a Woodhaven track that I had purchased some time ago.

Photo A shows it installed on the table and fence.  It mounts to the fence with a ¼ - 20 bolt using the predrilled hole in the track as show in Photo D.

Photos B and C show the device from different angles.  Photo C shows the raised part which fits into and rides in the track of the fence rail.  It keeps the UHMW block from skewing as the fence is moved back and forth.

Reference Photo E:

I also purchased the Kreg switch for the router table but found out that it was designed to mount on the right hand corner of the table and it was oriented 90º opposite from what I am used to with my other power tools.  I am right handed and I wanted to be able to quickly slap the paddle down with my left hand while maintaining control of the work piece with my right hand.  So, I used a piece of aluminum flat stock to fashion my own preferred mounting.  This allowed my to also mount a few needed tools on the front of the table (Photo F).

Reference Photo G:

This is a mount I made for the automatic vacuum switch.  I needed to keep it accessable because I frequently unplug the vacuum for use elsewhere.

Reference Photo H:

The dust port for this fence is a very poor design.  The slightest weight from the vacuum hose pops the dust port off the fence.  To alleviate this problem, I made a very thin strip of wood to jam between the catches on the dust port and the fence.  That strip of wood prevents those catches from disengaging.
