I have used the Rockwell overarm/undertable pin router from the '60's and '70's. I have also used a drill press as a pin router for plastic. I am currently restoring a 1920's RL Carter pin router. It was also produced and a Carter-Stanley. I considered building an undertable model with a pin from above before buying the RL Carter. They are great for duplicating.

Ted,

Here's a couple more web pages with information on pin routing and one pin routing company's instructions, which contain "how to use" information.

I couldn't get the Popular Mechanics one to move beyond the first page. Was it just me?

Cheers

Dewalt made an attachment for the RAS that held a router motor. It clamped on the ring that held the blade guard. I had one and never used it. I sold it to a gentleman last fall.
