Like my M12V2. The looks turned a lot of prospective buyers off which was too bad because it is a top notch router for both handheld and router table use. I was told quite a few years ago that one of the older members of this forum left because he got tired of being kidded about it.

Cole, I had depth problems with my first attempt at a home-made router table. I had used 1/4 inch cast acrylic (plexi) for the plate. It seemed stiff but it sagged. When holding the material down the ends would get a deeper cut than the center. Very noticeable on smaller round-overs. I have an aluminum plate now - big difference.

Glad to see that you're getting better results.

The biggest mistake I made was, the minimal clamp down with the first jig with the assumption that I would make each cut in one pass.
The plunge feature allowed me to resume my cuts precisely after I alternated my clamps on the stock from end to end. This was much safer and surprisingly accurate. It took a bit longer than doing the cut in a single pass but the extra safety precaution paid off as you can see. Safety should always be paramount when using any powertool, everything just falls into place afterwards.
Cheers!!!
