A nicely finished plasma table...

Roller chain driven plasma table...

More roller chain...

Router table. I'd love to make my table dual purpose. People say it doesn't work out very well, however.

Plasma table built from aluminum extrusions...

Really beefy CNC plasma table...

Router tables can be pretty compact too...

Another compact router. I can't see it well enough, but it has a linear slide at bottom of Y, I wonder if the top edge has a v-groove pulley running on it to help support the top? That would be a way to save cost on using 2 linear slides...

Clever looking small router...


Love the under table storage, if that's what it is. Also, can that be a gigantic hunk of granite as the table???

Nice router built as a college project...

Techno-Isel Router. Servo & Belt Drives are nicely integrated so they don't stick out. Looks like the X-axis rail is protected under the table from debris. Y- and Z-axes seem to be recessed for similar protection. The legs are heavy, but there is a lot less cross bracing than I would have expected. I guess the table extrusons are stressed members so it isn't needed.

Techno-Isel With Vacuum Table...
