Default Router planer experiment

Hi !
I have just made a small version of router planing jig just to see, how good can it work. The results are very good. The surface of the working piece is smooth and flat so I decided to build a bigger version with ball bearings and better system for hight adjustment. Currently there are two screws from each side to adjust the hight for thicker parts. Still, it's accurate enough because the thickness of the working piece is in 0.1mm tolerance if my Mitutoyo digital calliper is not lying.

Looks like it does the job well.
We seem to have the same taste in router, scrap particle board, oak, and vacuum hose.
It's almost as if you did this in my workshop.
I have to ask, where are you located ?

Hi Gavin !
Yes, the jig seems to work well. I was surprised how good are the results. At the end of that orange vacuum hose is also one of my experiments-home made cyclone which turned to be one of the best things I've done (I don't need to change vacuum cleaner bags so often).
About router;, you have the same router Bosch POF1400ACE? Do you also have some play on the right side between the pillar and bushing?
By the way; I am from Slovenia.
