Doesn't quite fit the description, but I think the cart could be
modified to be an infeed table if desired, with some swing down legs.
The trick is having 8 feet available in the front and 8 feet clear on

What did not occur to me until after I posted, since I haven't bought much

Tell me, how is that Festool gizmo working out for you? ;-)
I looked at the Festool router demo at the above site. Apparently this
