My first post-Dw618 question
My name is Paul and I am new to this forum and really looking forward to being a part of this community.
I just purchased my first router, the DW618B3 kit with the 3 bases and was really excited when it came, however I am puzzled at why they put the rod openings for the auxillary fence at a right angle to the D-handle? Could someone explain this to me? I had envisioned using the D-handle as leverage to keep the base flat on the stock as I edge routed but, now it seems like it will be in a much less stable configuration, having to twist my wrists to maintain full contact. The plunge base rod openings are not configured perpendicular to the handles, but the D-handle is. This just seems so awkward. Is there any way around this?
I look frward to your collective wisdom and being a contributor to this forum (once I get smarter about this stuff).
