My router just hit the dirt!
I bought a Woodpeckers plunge lift router lift at the end of May...sort of a early Father's day gift. The lift had been working rather well for me until this evening. I had just released the plunge lock and was raising the router to change bits and the next thing I know I hear this horrible THUD! After inspecting the aftermath, it looks like the only thing holding the router when the plunge lock is disengaged is the red ring (with the index marks) which appears to be press fitted into the rod which comes up through the plate. Over time I can see how this ring could work itself loose.
I guess I will be calling Woodpeckers tomorrow...I am in the >30 days but <90 days which means a 15% restocking fee. Has anyone else had this sort of experience with the Plunge Lift?
Woodworking is more than a hobby.
It is a journey of discovery,
An application of innovation and creativity,
And an opportunity at self improvement.
