Got 1/4" clear acrylic.
Using drawing I got from bobj3.
Found out Bosch baseplate screw are metric. 4mm (Back to Lowes again)
Got 2 brass 1/4" bolts & will cut heads off. (will order the mortise bearings but on christmas list)
How big sq is the new base plate? (i was going to go 7")
How to get it centered on the plunge router base so corner to corner center is bit center and base plate holes line up?
How to cut center hole in base plate? How big?
Wish I'd read this before I made (now my first one) this one. 7" X 7"
Haven't cut the center hole yet, wanted to see if I was on the right track to this point.
I was just going to make this base plate for mortises. I threaded the acrylic but may need to epoxy in the nut that holds the guide posts if it don't hold.
(another rookie question) (too old to call em dumb ?s, but old enough to know to ask)
bobj3"..then chuck up a 1 3/8" bit or 1 3/4" bit..
This come down to what size of guides you want to use."
Having never used guide bushings (yet), I believe the bosch I have has a unique bushing mounting clamp. Would I be better off buying a universal set & making the new bases fit them?
Here's what I got (all I got) router speaking.
Apologize for lack of router experience but hope to be a quick learner.
Thanks for all the help. Has been very helpful.
Will start a new base tomorrow with more knowledge.
