Anyway, the plate I made was square, but since the 3/4" router bit leaves round corners,. I rounded the lift plate edges to sexy it up.
The aluminum is soft of course, so I may add the same laminate to the router lift top plate. I routed deep enough for clearance to do that.
Anyway, it was approaching sundown, to I put the lift in and one side of the Kreg mini tracks. I need one more for the other side, but running low on funds. They are $21 locally. I'll need a third one if I add the miter gauge.
It will be easiest to remove the router body for changing bits. Just need to remove two knobs and it drops right out.
....so I'm finally making progress. A stable fence design is next. I'm thinking aluminum.
