Default New to skis


I am presently in pross of makng up a ski jig.
I've made the sides out of wood and the platform out of welded angle metal.

Question, should the router be fixed to angle platform or allowed to slide freely ?

If you are only using this to thickness wood it can be free sliding. For other operations the router should be secured in place.
