Triton MOF001 Base plate Issues.
I am happy with my Triton MOF001 for the most part, but I recently ran into some trouble when I made a jig that relied on running the baseplate against an edge to guide the cut.
I discovered that the plastic base plate does not sit flush with the metal casting, I'm not sure if it's meant to be slightly smaller/larger than the metal casting by design but any adjustments I can make to it simply push the base plate proud of the casting one side and just shy of it the other.. so it's not going to be very accurate if the router is guided via the base plate along the edge of a jig.
Would the best option be to make a new one, screw it down then flush the base to the metal by hand? or should I make one a fraction under sized so that the metal casting is used to guide these kind of cuts rather than the plastic base plate?
Is there a good method of checking to see if the center of the bit/motor spindle is concentric with the external edges of the router?
My other option was to purchase the trend Sub-Base as I would like to start using their guide bushings, but I'm not sure this will solve my issue when using the router base to guide cuts against a jig/template.
