Router Table Laser
« on: December 13, 2019, 02:51 AM »
In cutting stopped dados and other cuts on my router table, I often wish I had a sharply focused laser lines that crisply delineated where the front and back of the bit were. I have that feature on my Kapex. I could see the two lasers on goosenecks attached to my router fence providing the lines.

Does anyone make such a tool?

In place of mounting on gooseneck arms what about embedded in the table top.
