Don't know about the router, but here's an edge guide Router Bits Direct is Canada's home for router bits, router tables and other top quality products from Freud & CMT

Welcome Patrick. I had a 2000 and will never own another Freud power tool. The armature went on mine. Others had issues with the potentiometer speed control. You may have better luck.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Why not just buy a good clamping type edge guide and you could use it for all of your tools.

Or build one. Universal Router Edge Guide And Mortise Jig | Jays Custom Creations

I bought a Freud FT-2000 about 20 years ago and it just won't die. I don't particularly like it but it just keep on going. I regularly threaten to buy a new plunger, maybe that's the trick to keep it in line...

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.
