Thumbs up Newby

Hello, I am Rowlette;retired; new to this forum and new to making my own molding??? well, put it this way, I plan to make my own traditional door/window casings and wainscoting in the master bath and the rest of the home. I went and purchase a slightly use Grizzly G0528 paid $225.00 table though Craigslist and going to mount a new Freud FT1700VCE which I bought last year from Lowes for $50.00 missing the collet. You could call a very skilled Handyman since I have done major remodeling on 4 places so far. I now in the process of a complete remake of a home I bought in 1999 5/4 which was leased optioned and the tenants completely destroyed/gutted the place. I have completed the cabana bath so far and the kitchen. I am working on the master bath just finished the marble/ installed Jacuzzi bath, a seated shower with his and her shower unit w/ 4 jet body massage units. Getting back on track, I a new to using a router unit (experienced with rotozip and dremel) and not even sure what I need to do, I am not sure how to mount router to the table. So, I plan to use this form to shorten the learning curve. I should be able to do some really custom casings and wainscoting using the router which would put some pizzazz to this project and I am always excited about learning something new and being challenged.

Did your table come with an insert plate? The Grizzley insert plate is one of the better ones but may not be predrilled for your router which means you'll have to do it. You will need to take the plastic baseplate off your router to use the table insert and you can use it to locate the holes you'll need to dill. You may need longer screws that the ones holding the baseplate on your router now. Keep in mind that they are metric.
As for bits, you can learn a lot by looking through manufacturer's catalogs, many of which are downloadable pdf files, to see what is available.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
