About the only thing I agree on with you lolGood question Ron and i keep asking myself this question few time during the day. beside router table i am also getting a mill and lathe.
assembly i am getting help but design change, i do not trust my son and his friends. also my son and co is available only during the weekend.
now health issue, either i stay on bed and feel sorry for myself for rest of my natural life or try to do something more constructive and i choose the second path. idea is to do cad/cam stuff in horizontal position and put a gentry around the table to put the stuff on the table. may be i am dreaming but worth the try. i rather fail trying instead of giving up before trying.
difficult to digest, right? my wife had the same response but now when she see a smile on my face after i spend an hour or two in the basement she knows it is worth it.
