Default Keeping my router locked in "on" position?

Hi,

Im new the wonders of the router forum, I've been searching around but couldnt seem to find what i was looking for (Im sure its somewhere)..

Anyway I was looking for some advice on keeping my router in the "on" position when mounted in a router table. I have a Makita 3612C with a trigger switch but no lock on feature....

I have considered cable ties, clamps, tape etc but before i went ahead, was wondering if anyone had any experience/tips/recommendations???

Cheers!

Cable ties and a no volt release switch to control the router on/off.

Hi Mike

I have all my routers setup in the router table that way (6ea.) ,,it can be just about anything you want,,tape is cheap and works well, but I would suggest not to by pass the switch all the time, you may want to use the router out side of the table,,,remove the tape and your set..
