    Bobby,
    Thanks for your suggestion, that does look solid but I don't think I'll get it for under 100 even if he does decide to cut it..

    Martin,
    I'm now leaning more towards this foamex stuff. Thanks for the offer but it's just a little small.. I found this listing on ebay at a decent price 171981860453

    I'll see if they can supply custom sizes.

    One more thing, on the picture I think I can see that your foamex is pretty much fully supported (correct me if I'm wrong).
    My diy router has 20x40mm profiles running lengthwise and about 10cm apart. I hope this foamex will not sag where its not directly supported?
    Cheers

    IMHO there is no better bed than Phenolic. All else will suck water like crazy and will change shape like wood or will crack or... It is the perfect material for sacrificial bed. Plus holds dimensional stability like nothing else for the price. Paper phenolic is ok for the job. If the machine is precise when you say cut to full depth it will slide on top of phenolic and no need to surface it so often.

    Dunno really, you might have put more support in, but 19mm is really rigid.

    Also if anybody hasn't used foamex as a sacrificial bed, they shouldn't diismiss it, every industrial router I've owned has been fitted with it.

    Thanks, my main concern is that since its plywood coated in something, won't the plywood absorb moisture around the edges and swell?

    Its not plywood coated in sth. Its Tufnol or Pnenolic sheet paper based. I was not saying Phenolic Plywood

    Looking at the link you posted, all I can see is phenolic plywood. Could you find a listing for the stuff that you are suggesting?
    Thanks Kamil
