Default Grizzly router table and Milwaukee router

Hello,

I have a Grizzly sliding router table and a Milwaukee 5625-20 3 1/2 hp router do I need to remove the base plate to mount it to my table? Can I use this setup without the base plate, just checking before I proceed.

Thanks for you help.

Scott

Hi, Scott.

The sub-base that comes with the 5625-20 is normally removed. If not, you will lose the height adjustment equal to that extra thickness. I test-mounted my 5625-20 to a General cast iron extension, and I would have been happy to leave the sub in place, because it seemed like it would clamp more firmly into the t-slot tracks underneath the table. But, when I needed to route a piece with a sequence of upward adjustments, I ran out of travel long before I completed the cut. Can't say I'm familiar yet with the method of clamping for the Grizzly, but I will soon know.

Oh, and by the way, I read a review of this router where a fellow pushed the quick release height adjustment without supporting the motor, and had it fall to the floor. Since my router is also new, I took heed.

Rain,

Thank You for the info, I looked it over last night and found that the upward adjustment was not as much as I would like so I removed the base and it seems it will work very nice. Regarding the quick release on the height adjustment if you push the button it will fall, I might have a stop made to protect my investment. By the way this router sure is smooth and quiet.

Thanks again,

Scott
