Isn't email wonderful
I have a new project forming in the back of my mind and it will require a template guide larger than my biggest which, not counting the router base, is 50mm (2")..The only suitable material that I could find was a chunk of Brass weighing 11 3/4oz. I was part way through turning it when I suddenly stopped and thought to myself "if Bj sees this chunk of Brass on the bottom of my router, I'll never live it down" so I did the sensible thing and emailed a friend and asked him to wander around the machine shops in his building and look for any kind of plastics suitable for making template guides/sleeves out of. On his way home he dropped off what you see in the second shot. Friends and emails are both wonderful and I'm blessed in having both, here in Australia and around the world on this forum.
