Oh yeah? Well I have a Lowe's brand coping saw and a Nicholson file set.

Jealous yet?

No but really at 24 living in a shoebox apartment and perpetually broke, there's some major tool envy over here.

Keeping notes of everything here for the day I can expand a little bit!

i went the sanding drums for drill press rout, give it a try sling nerd.

Brucered - thats a nice router table. Along the lines of what I'm trying to get rigged up.

Thanks.  It's just a cheap Sears Plunge Router that I've had for years.  The baseplate for it, is from Lee Valley.  I comes with all the screws and attachments needed to affix to your router and if you screw up the drilling, they will give you another one for free (I never had any issues).  It also comes with plans to make a basic router table top.  Mine is just attached to the top of a basic tool stand and the bit clears the sander, so I can double up my space.  It's quite a nifty router base attachment.

I've usually gone for a more ghetto typer approach - but pretty much the same principal.
