After cutting my 50th or so set of mdf rings I decided I needed something better than than a jigsaw setup. I don't do enough to justify $600 plus for a good router & table setup.
I put the following together in a couple of evenings and figured I'd share it in case anyone else can use it.
Disclaimer: I'm a rough carpenter, not not a finish carpenter or routering expert.
This is my laminate router (about $90), and a piece of scrap 3/4 HDPE (cutting board plastic, $5).
I marked out the shape of the base on the HDPE and cut this out, leaving about 1/4 inch for the router to be secured to.
Cut out the opening for the router bits to operate through, then drilled the holes to line up with the threaded holes on the base of the router.
Drilled countersink holes for the router base screws.
Cut a slot and installed metal track from a dremel circle jig (I believe you can buy this from home depot etc.)
Here is the router installed on the HDPE.
