can't get router to mount to table
I am an avid do it yourself person. We do a lot of home repair, remodel, etc., but routing is new for us. We have a craftsman router and a portable router table that we have not used. We want to router a decorative plate to mount a bathroom light fixture so it can extend over a framed mirror. We can not get the router to mount level in the table no matter what we do. It looks like it should be simple and simply rotate it - but we can't get it. Is there a simple trick or what are we doing wrong?
