I have a ton of doors to make and I didn't like the idea of hand feeding all that material over my router table. I have been meaning to make a new better router table, but I have just not got around to it, so I brought home a power feeder from work and just bolted to my existing somewhat down and out router table.
The router table is the only piece of woodworking machinery that has ever bitten me and I am leery of hand feeding boards over it. I must say that pushing the board into the first wheel, and grabbing it from the third wheel was much easier on the sphincter muscle than hand feeding. Not only that, but running at 14 ft/min gave excellent quality of cut with a set of CMT cutters, no burning and no discernible milling marks. Not like when I was hand feeding, little burn marks when I was moving my hands, or jiggles in the profile. I am sold on this and wish I had bought one a long time ago.
The Delta 36-850 1/4 HP power feeder parts out of the box,
The power feeder mounted to my router table,
A bunch of rough cut rails,
The rails all milled,
Runing the rails through the router table with the power feeder,
All the rails milled,
These are all rough length and some multiple length, I will cut all the rails and stiles from this stock tomorrow.
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.
