A compact router table for shaping and leveling small parts
From the inventor of the Luthier's Friend Sanding Station™ comes a small, portable router table that can be clamped quickly to your workbench and easily stored when not in use.
Cut, rout, shape, joint, plane, and duplicate
Use The Otter™ as a stationary router table or flip it over and use it as a handheld router. Router sold separately.
As a router table
Features a fence with two working surfaces: one side is straight for traditional routing. The other side of the fence is offset and allows you to use your router as a jointer. The fence is easily removable.
As a traditional handheld router
Attach the two runners to the bottom of the table and use The Otter™ as a handheld router. The runners straddle your project and allow you to machine a fingerboard or veneer flat. The extra handle allows two-handed routing, giving you better control.
Normal table routing
Use The Otter™ with the large cutaway side of the fence facing you for normal table routing. The fence can be easily removed for pattern routing.
Make a template and use a guide bushing or flush trim router bit to duplicate parts. With a flush-trim bit, you can often use the old part as a template.
Flip the fence around so the small cutaway side is facing you for jointing operations. The fixed outfeed fence removes 1/16" with each pass until the edge you are jointing is straight.
Built in dust collection
The Otter™ comes with two different attachments that attach to any vacuum hose, keeping your work clean and free of debris. Dan Erlewine says it's some of the best dust collection he's seen.
The Otter™ Compact Routing Table includes:
- Plastic router table
- Double-sided removable fence for pattern and table routing
- 2 removable 5/8" rails for handheld routing
- Dust collection assembly with 2 attachments and adapter
- Centering plug
Designed to fit the Bosch Colt Router, but adaptable for other models. Router not included.
