Given that a plunge router can also be mounted in a table, for years I had only a plunge router which, when I used it, was either in the table or hand held depending on what I was doing.

Harry's ( @harrysin ) router skis are another incredabley useful way to use a router.

The base would have to be pretty tall though to use it for cutting the rabbet inside cabinet boxes - guess I'll stick with clamping on a support for now.
"pretty tall" not a problem as can be seen in this shot of a quick ski made for a special job.

Tom, I completely forgot your change of name hence I haven't been acknowledging your posts. I do hope that your health has improved as mine is, but not quite ready to get back into the shed.

@harrysin , I was concerned that people might not recognize me. There is a backstory behind it involving discrimination and my need to use a wheelchair. I am trying to get things together but my sleep problems are the main problem now. Somehow I want to be certain I am fully wide awake while dealing with rapidly spinning sharp things!

I am looking forward with great eagerness for your return to your shed.

@Cricket , I have no idea why the QUOTE did not work. You posed another great discussion point. Keep them coming!
