Default router bases

I have a dewalt dwp611 router and just purchased a frued rabbiting bit 13/8 diameter. Can't adjust depth due to a smaller hole in base plate. do I cut A larger hole in my new base or is there a better solution? Your advise would be appricated. Alan

I don't know if you're 'supposed' to do that, but I would.

Alan, don't cut your plate... you will need it for use with guide bushings. It is easy to make a new sub base plate. The sub base plate helps provide balance and prevents marring your material. Depending on the job you can use BJ's tip, I would suggest having a second piece of material the same thickness as your workpiece in front of the work to help balance your router.

Tip if not using a plate. If I do that, I tape off the bottom with blue masking tape. Just a couple strips seems to do fine. That way I don't add black aluminum marks to my work.

On circular saws with aluminum platforms, aluminum router table plates, aluminum router & saw tables... I use paste wax. Just saves from having to sand those aluminum marks off.

Try the MLCS 9465 1/2-Inch Shank Router Collet Extension and Wrenches from MLCS or Amazon ~ 30.00 I can not live without mine now that I have one. Best Part, you do not like it you send it back and get your money back.

Good Luck - Baker
