Default 1617 plunge router locked and loaded?

Is it ok to store the Plunge router plunged and locked down?

I never found anything I couldn't find.

I prefer not to...
no sense in keeping the springs under compression...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Why would you?
I have a good spot to store it but it only will fit compressed. If its not a good idea I will store it somewhere else.

All good points. I sympathize with the vertical ht. storage issue, but I agree with stick on the long term spring compression part.

On somewhat of a parallel note: my father in law had a semi auto 22 that he finally handed down to me. He had a 10 shot clip for it which he had left loaded for a few years (not sure just how many). It won't shoot the last 3 cartridges anymore. The clip spring won't push them up with enough force for the receiver to catch them.

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.

firing pins act the same way...

In a simpler world I was taught not to wind the film forwards until your ready use the camera.

Jon...that's so you don't take pictures of your feet accidentally. Wish I had a buck for every 'accidentally' clicked pic that I've taken. No one cares anymore; bytes are cheap.
