    Nice!

    Any build pictures for the column and saddle for the router? I find the various solutions to these builds fascinating.

    Shars sells a very good and heavy duty cross slide for a very good price. The Shars cross slide is a proper cross slide with great tolerances. It is also easy to add drive motors or CNC if you care to.. Joe
