More Robland X31 progress:
Having used various arrangements for supporting wood boards and plywood on and off machines, including permanent tables and rollers, I have decided this time to combine the best of what I’ve learned over the years. Roller stands are small and portable, but they can tip over. Sturdy shop-made tables are great, but they can take up valuable space. On the other hand, the tables are good for stacking, sanding, assembly, and finishing.
I bought two portable Keter work tables. One is sold at Home Depot and can be taken apart and put together in a couple of minutes. It comes with a router table insert, which I replaced with a piece of plywood. The other table I bought on Amazon, and it deploys and folds up in two seconds! Both tables are only 22” x 33” x 5” taken down. On the portable tables there are 2ft. x 4ft x 1in. thick plywood tops. These work tables each support two other 1/2” ply tops that serve as the machine support tables. I put the Keter router table insert into the out-feed table. This way I can use the Robland shaper fence and the sliding table along with the router table.
