Centering Base Plate
I'm just asking for ideas on a situation I have here. I ordered the 7" base plate for my router and finally received it yesterday (by the way I have the Bosch 1617evs router package). I found out that I can center it right over the collet with no problem on my fixed base router when I install the screws. But when I center the same base plate over the collet on my plunge router and install the screws, the center is off. I even turned the 7" base plate clockwise several times to try to align differently and still the same thing. The bit looks like it is 1/32nd of an inch away from the guide on one side of the bit. Dangerous situation. I use a centering cone that came with the router package. The only way that I can get the base plate centered is by not using the screws. I don't know if using double stick tape to attach the base plate to the plunge base would be a good idea. What do you think? Thanks!
