Default Router Update

Hi

Just a update

Back in Feb. this year I got a PC 3 1/4 HP off the forum (see link below) ,when I got the router it was dead. dead so I put it on the back burner and I was going to paint it white for a new door stop on Fri. this week and I said lets try it one more b/4 the door stop way..I cut some wires and did a bit of jumping the wires around. l plugged it in and it's was off running,I plugged into a router speed control box now I have a new/used 3 1/4 HP VS router to play with..I did rework the base plate to take on the bigger brass guides 1 1/2" ( the OP type) and drilled the holes out in the base plate for 1/2" rods, I'm sure you know why (Ski setup) made a new rod for the stopping point for the plunge base and order a lift kit from Amazon but I'm not in a big toot to install it yet..

By the way it was not the switch, it was that Dam soft start chip, I know they can't take the hot long runs without going south, by the way that's tip for any one with a VS router that little chips gets so hot you can light your cig.on it..

So the bottom line is you can find some great deals on the forum, just need to read it every day.. 325.oo router for 50.oo bucks ,not a bad deal in my book..

Just a note+++ the 7538 PC and other older PC routers have a real lame collet but the newer type collets will screw right on, the quick release type... 1/4" and 1/2" ones.... >>>

Good deal Bj - you can put the lid back on the paint can now

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

How many does this make BJ? One of these days you will have to post a list of all the different routers you have. Bob Rosendahl was only kidding when he said "have one for each bit!"

HI Mike

" Bob Rosendahl " hahahahahahaha I didn't know he was kidding, he is my hero and the rule maker in my book, " many" = I did that about a year ago or so, but I have added 6 or 7 to the stable since that,,but like I always say you can't have to many routers

I was just thinking about all the members in the UK/AU that didn't see Bob R. do is magic on the PBS (TV),, now he is the true master of the router and that's what the forum is all about for me..

Well done Bob, when the day arrives for the router and cutter sale, the public will have a very wide choice. With the money raised I'm sure that you will buy the latest in laser cutting machines and only the one will be required.

Bob, a comparative youngster like you will go on for as long as you keep making sawdust, at least that's my theory and why I've always got two or three projects on the go, I hope to present another routing tutorial for beginners with heaps of photographs very soon.

No Bob, I'm well into another one, a Solitaire marble game based on the one presented recently by Sante. It isn't exactly the same and there will be fully detailed photographs showing how to make the single template. As for the "oh dear what have I done", if this one ends up in the same format I shall be saying it again! But again I'll find an answer.
