much appreciated
nice to see that many people are passionate about the creation of something own out of the perfect creation of wood
i would not want to disappoint anyone about the freud routers but mine experienced the sudden motor failure and service tech told me that freud makes the best blades and bids but routers are horrible and not worth any money
i trully respect others opinions , but share my own experience

Hi Bolo,

Welcome to the router forums. I DO suggest you follow Bj's suggestion. If this doesn't work, I also suggest you contact CharlesM. He's a member here and works for Freud, I'm sure that he can point you in the correct direction.
