Router table to fix Kamado Table

You will love the lift and the clean sweep system. I tried using a Triton in my table but finally gave up and got the Incra lift. With the wonder fence and the hose attached to it, the clean sweep setup leaves almost zero dust on the table. I am very happy with mine, I have a PC 7518 mounted but your Milwaukee is another great router. Make sure you have plenty of support for the center of your table, the router and lift are fairly heavy and started to make my table sag in the middle but my table saw table is a lot wider than the normal Incra table. I added a center support and brought it back to level and it's been fine since.

 

I was also a little upset that I had to buy the clean sweep inserts as an extra item. You would think that as much as you are spending for the setup, they would include the inserts.

 

I originally was going to go with Triton, I noticed numerous posts and comments about different finicky issues with the TRA001.  Spring tension issues,  large bits dropping slightly in the middle of cuts, power button issues, and difficulties making minor adjustments.

 

Router lifts are far more reliable with their precision worm gears.  The LS system requires 5-6 adjustment in a row for some of the more complex dovetail projects.  The Triton would require going under the table for all 5 adjustments to lock the table  and power up the router. 

 

The Incra CleanSweep is part of the package I plan to buy.  I don’t have full size dust extractor, I plan to buy a Festool CT 26 in January and a Dust Deputy.  Hopefully a 2 inch/Dust Deputy connection can be used as a bandaid for the CleanSweep until I can add a 4 inch system.

Got to love some woodworking energy with some tool drool.:) I have a fully equipped woodworking shop. My Unisaw is dressed up with an Incra fence, Jet cast iron sliding table on one side and a Bench Dog cast iron router table wing on the other w/ a Woodpecker's Quick lift. You are on a slippery slope. :-D

 

BTW I've got lots of Festool green in my shop and for me anyways, I would purchase your full size DC prior to a Festool extractor. I love my CT extractors for portable tools but they're not a replacement for a full size DC on stationary tools. In the mean time, a cheap Shop Vac equipped with a HEPA filter is a decent sub for a CT extractor. Just my $.02.

I have to upgrade the Fuse box in the garage to accommodate a 2 HP dust extractor system.  Until I do that, it’s not on the table.   Dual 15’s are usually reccomend for the 2.5 HP dust extractor.  The box is already maxed out.   Unfortunately the fix is costly.
