Collet extension for coping sled?
I made a coping sled for my router table (Jessem) and the extra 1/2" base of the sled doesn't allow the bit to reach the piece I'm trying to do a cope on ... the bit ends up being locked for removal/replacement by the interlock on the router instead. The only thing I can think of at the moment is a collet extension but I'm not crazy about the tradeoffs (safety/runout) with that approach. Anything I'm missing (besides a better / different router ... I already own 4)?
Any / all advice appreciated!
