thanks guys for all the feed back - I will try and answers most of the questions.
This all started with me trying to find a 1-1/2" & 2" OD template guide to offset a 1/2" bit to either side of the cutting line for curved joinery while teaching and writing a book about it. I couldn't find one and was making them out of MDF, acrylic, solid turning wood and what a PITA.
Then I wanted a offset router base that would accept a template guide and couldn't find that either. Again, made them out of Baltic birch ply, even more of a PITA. SO...my son said have them made! I am a full time professional woodworker and not interested in making and selling tools but this did seem to fill a gap and allows you to work safer. More control = more precision = working safer. So I went for it. What a painful learning curve. David, I tried getting them made in the USA and the price would be 4x, this distressed me to no end. but one of my students at Marc Adams School said - "engineered and assembled in USA" a bit of a PR
spin but I had to accept the global economy reality. A friend of mine did tour the factory outside of Shanghai, and at least it wasn't kids in a grass hunt. It was a state of the art CNC shop.
I will be making more videos on each features - good idea Terry. The entire system has as many features as I could think of, please see the list and video on the link.
For the vacuum attachment Gary, I looked at a few other MFG's and figure whichever one you might have, it could simply be added. The base is Aluminum and can be easily drilled and tapped for other router accessories. Getting into plastic injection molding is too far above my head. Having a flat piece of aluminum milled was a challenge.
My last issue is trying to find the mounting base plate hole patterns for a Triton. I want to be sure my base fits it too. Anyone have any drawings or links?
