Workbench Mortises

I got a little time to work on my workbench yesterday and got the mortises done.  I opted to use the router for this task.  Two inch, 5/8″ mortises seemed a bit daunting any other way.  So I used the spinney load tool.

BTW, I converted my router dust collection similar to Chris Wong over at Flair Woodworks (thanks for the idea Chris!). In his post Adapting a Porter Cable 890-Series Plunge Router to fit a Festool D27 Dust Extraction HoseI believe he turned his piece of PVC to fit into his router dust collection. I just went to Home Depot and bought a piece of PVC that fit and tightened it all up with plummer’s tape.

  1. Nice work on the adapter, Marilyn! For better dust collection, the router needs something to enclose the base. Any ideas?Chris

  2. Mine came with housing that works pretty well. Here's the part -> http://www.ereplacementparts.com/housing-p-62448.html

  3. Hi Marilyn,Well, that's just fantastic! I'm quite sure that part was not included with my router but I will check, then order the part if I don't have it. I'm so glad that I mentioned it. Thanks!Chris
