DIY milling table

As part of the FanProject Arsenal Master We will tell you about Gennady Sevastopol's Project "Milling Table"

Let's make a milling table for wood: tabletop size 670 x 1005 x 30 mm, table height 850 mm. The milling table allows: to obtain a more accurate degree of material processing. Rigidly mounted router, confidently cuts various types of wood, plastic, coated chipboards. On it, you can not only chamfer, but make a groove, slot, slot, spike, groove, curly profile selection. Speed ​​up the milling process (it took a lot of time to fix the part).

This table can be used as an assembly table (the cutter is lowered; a blind washer is placed in the milling plate; clamping clamps or clamps can be installed in the guide profiles with a t-track). It helps to save space in the workshop (quite a lot of tools fit into the boxes built into the table).

The milling table is made of 15 mm moisture resistant plywood. Cutting was carried out with a hand hypoid saw on a homemade guide from a profile pipe. Marking was carried out using Swanson Speed ​​Square Metric Square 250 mm for carpenter and joiner with instructions in Russian.

After cutting, the table was assembled using a 19.1 mm long Kreg oblique screw and additionally glued with moisture-resistant adhesive Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue 1415. gripper Wood Project 76 mm Automaxx Kreg KHC3-INT HIT! 2. Kreg Quick Change Kit for drilling and screwdriving with QUIK-KIT. 3. Portable base for drilling jig Kreg Jig KPDGB. 4. Replaceable drilling jig for K3 and K4 Kreg. 5. Coarse pitch screws 19 mm Kreg.

The tabletop itself was also made of moisture-resistant plywood - but only with two layers of glued. The framing of the tabletop, as well as the hiding of all visible ends of the plywood of the table, is made by upholstery with oak slats. The oak board for the slats was first leveled using a two-mode submersible milling cutter with a microlift Triton TRA001 2400W and a cutter for leveling the surface of SLEBs 42x6x70x8 Dimar 1601045. The slats were attached using studs and waterproof Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue 1415.

All boxes are made of regular 8 mm plywood using pins and glue. After assembly, the drawers were installed on the table on the furniture rails in the table. The facades are made of 15 mm moisture-resistant plywood. They are attached to the boxes with glue and handles. The entire table frame and drawers were opened with yacht varnish. The milling table was mounted on swivel castors with a brake. In the back of the table, a coil for a wire (length 15 m with a cross-section of 4 mm square three cores) and a socket for a vacuum cleaner were mounted, and in the right, a start / stop button and a button for turning on the router backlight were mounted. The backlight is made from a 220 V LED strip. All wiring is laid in a cable channel. Another socket was installed in the middle section of the table - for the router.

A glass door with a latch was installed in the table (the noise after installing the door was almost halved). The edges of the table top were machined with a Triton TRA001 2400W dual-mode plunge milling cutter with microlift with an edge cutter. The table top has two-slotted track rails T-track 45.6 mm anodized matt silver 1 m TR045. 000, and a stainless steel router plate. The guide rails are fastened with self-tapping screws and epoxy glue. Adjustment of the plate relative to the table surface is carried out by furniture fittings. A removable washer is built into the insert, which changes depending on the diameter of the cutter used. The cutter plate has metric scales for accurate setting of the rip fence.

Rip fence made of 100 mm T-track rail with two cover plates, anodised, matt silver, 1 m art TR100. 000N in which the cutter hole was cut. Sliding cheeks are made of glued PCB with plywood (the thickness of PCB was not enough for a full-size cheek). a cheek was cut from a PCB, glued to plywood; after gluing, it was overtaken by a milling cutter on a milling table; through grooves were made (for clamping bolts); polished and varnished. After varnishing, the cheeks were installed on the stop and tightened with wing nuts. Limit stops are installed on the guide rails. The parallel stop moves along the guide rails using an aluminum slider attached to the stop with metal squares (M8 bolts). On the metal corners, wing nuts are installed to fix the stop itself. Installed a plastic dust outlet for the vacuum cleaner.

All fastener nuts are protected by plastic caps.
