Are the footings below, even or above ground level? Is the area level? If you need to bring in dirt for a new patio, won't need to break off or dig out the footings at all, just bury them. The...

The best thing that anyone can do is, "think" the process through first. Visualize it in your mind. You'll surprise yourself at what YOU can "see" happening BEFORE it happens. Accidents do happen...

Hi James, from what I'm seeing in your pic(s), this is actually an easy fix. Like Harry, would need to see the top side of the router and the adjustment knob.

Check your collet first. How tight was it holding the sleeve? Did the previous owner over-tighten the collet nut to hold the sleeve? There are many causes to what you're experiencing. I'd first check...

Can anyone guarantee that the screws holding the blades/knives won't come loose during operation? Think of the vibration going through the bit while cutting. I prefer a solid bit. Just MHO.

Hi James,

The "jig" I have, it goes from the edge or rather center of your pivot point to the inside edge of the router bit. I have made a circle cutting table jig for my BS and I measure from the...

For Nick, I had to contact OP (through Mark), for permission to send him photo copies of the jig(s) in question. You might want to contact Mark to see if I still have permission to do so....

Hi Harry,

From my experience with them, the springs are too weak to last very long. I guess I prefer the "old time method", hammer and center punch/nail setter, etc.

I also have the Milescraft plate. I don't have it mounted in a table, however, I can vouch that it is rigid to hold any size router. As my good friend Bj has pointed out, it is limited on the size of...

If you have a plate that flexes, best to return it. I have the OP plate, it doesn't flex at all.

I used to think having straight edges were the best thing until I remembered what my grand dad used all the time when he was a cabinet maker by trade. Nothing really beats an aluminum level.

Any "guide" bushing will work with the craftsman DT jig. You just need to match the size, ie., 1/2" to 1/2". Craftsman guides are useless.

For another alternative for you, get yourself a...

Hi Jack,

I have nothing against craftsman other than, their parts availability. In short, not in the too far future, you won't be able to get parts for your TS. IMHO, sell the craftsman.

From my experience with BB on a RT, it can work but, I'd advise against it. Feather boards are a better choice. I have a set of board buddies for my TS and love them. I made a sacrificial...
