Thanks for the replies. I did use the video link for the General No. 860 and watched the instruction videos - big help! Also the info on the four holes that hold the base plate as the best way for stability and safety in attaching the router to the table. I don't think they align however. I'll check after work tomorrow - no Thursday - as tomorrow will be a long day also. Being a novice to dovetails though not to a router, I approach with understandable caution. I probably will try the E-Z Pro 860 as I have just four drawers to make now and the investment is not large. The tips on the bearings, proximity of the jig, using a backer board are all well appreciated. Possibly saturday is the next chance for using the jig and after more thought on process. Work safely.
Best to you all,
