I'm going to be building myself a new router table, and there'
s a feature I'd like to install-- however, I need a particular piece of
hardware, and I'm not sure if it exists.
Here's what I'd like to do. On my table saw, there are two miter slots
to each side of the blade. In the past, I've built jigs that ride in
both of these slots, like table saw sleds and finger-joint jigs. It
occurred to me that, if I had the same slots in my router table--
running from front to back, on either side of the bit-- I could use the
same jigs there if I wanted. (And a finger-joint jig'd be great.)
However, if I installed such miter slots, they would intersect with the
standard miter slot that runs from side to side in front of the router
bit. And, since I'd like to install aluminum miter slots on this
project, I have to find a way of having two miter slots intersect at
right anglkesto one another.
I'm sure someone must make a four-way intersection for aluminum miter
slots. However, I can't find them in the Rockler or Woodcraft catalogs.
Can someone point me to a source for such a thing, if they exist?
