Default Just used my new Craftsman plunge router for the first time

I just got to use my brand spankin new craftsman plunge router for the first time. I used it with a homemade circle jig to cut holes for 4 8 inch woofers in a baffle for a speaker box. I LOVE THIS THING. It made the job very easy compared to the old broken C-man fixed base that I had been using. I bought a decent C-man 1/4 straight bit when i bought the router instead of the cheap junk I had been using. Id post a pic of my homemade circle jig but i havent reached the minimum number of posts yet.

Hi Jason

You don't need 10 posted items to post pictures you can do it right off the bat..
As long you don't use any URL calls in the picture uploads..

Gotcha, the only way I know to post pics on a forum is to link them from my photobucket account. Can I do that before 10 posts?

Hit the "Reply with quote" button and then scroll down. You will see a "Manage attachements" button on the left. Click that and you should be able to attach an image to your picture.

Hi Jason

Nope that's a no no because it calls the URL up for the other web server(PB), you can get around it by using TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting , it's like photobucket but they will give you a image command call the you can use in your post and over ride the URL call.

But you can reply to this post 2 or 3 times and you will be over the hump.. than the door is wide open for you.. ( just say hi or test or bump 2 or 3 times )

my router

First cuts with the new router

My homemade circle jig. Bolts in place of the base plate on the router. Uses a screw as the pivot. im thinking about making a new one that has pivot holes every 1/8th of an inch.

Hi Jason

If you are into making speaker boxes you may want to check out the Jasper jig made just for what you are doing from the small 1" tweeter to the big 14" speakers with a lip to hold them in place..

Im glad someone else likes the machine. I would like to find the fixed base for it separately as I could not afford the combo when i bought it. I thought 80 dollars was a pretty good deal on the machine. i was on my way to cruise the pawn shops with a budget of about 60 bucks when the wife suggested trying sears
