If you mean an offset base I usually just use the router attached to my table insert plate. One of the advantages of not fixing it down. Check out Pat Warner's website. He makes some beauties.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You can use lexon or 1/4" thick clear material.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

I agree with Chuck and Herb. Pat Warner has top quality, precision products, that he manufactures. I have bought a few bases from him in the past few years. If you are looking for repeatability, look no farther.
