Default O'Malley Router

dropped in to say hello to all and to ask anyone if the have had any luck in reachings James at O'malley Tool?

I purchased the 3hp router from O' about two years ago and built my own table. I used Lee Valley's round plate kit to mount the router. The project worked well, but I was wondering if anyone has tried installing a depth adjustment to the router. It looks like the spring retainer plug, that is pressed into the base, would have to be removed or modified? You can view the plug by removing the base plate.

Well--need to go make some chips-n-dust--Have a Great weekend

Hi Ray

You may want to check out the links below, the one for MLCS may help you rework your O'malley and just add the item to it...(routraiz) but you may need to made a PHONE call to MLCS to made sure it will fit your O'malley but the kits comes with many parts to fit just about all routers...
