I am retired, living in the UK and disabled after serving in the London police.
I now want to get some knowledge under my belt using different equipment. I have a Bosch router, and appreciate different models to different countries, but I followed what my father in law did with his, but still cannot adjust the depth of the cut.
I really would appreciate real help and advice on making life easier and using the knowledge in forums
Not familiar with that router, but since it's a plunge model, it may have a spring to lift it when using it hand held. In most models, you must remove the spring to use it in a table. My thinking is that the spring might be interfering with the fine adjustment.
I hope that Harry from Australia checks in because he has a similar lift setup, uses Makita routers, and likely will have a good solution.
That's an interesting lift mechanism. I wonder how solid it is. Seems like vibration might eventually move the scissor lift if it isn't screwed down. Though tension from the router may be sufficient to keep it in place.
And, good catch by David on the depth stop. Looks like a good candidate for the culprit. Springs could be an issue. Also is the plunge lock engaged?
