Default Freud router table

Wednesday Feb 17th, 2010
Good afternoon from the sunny Fraser Valley of British Columbia Canada.

We have this very nice Freud router table and the Freud 2200 router.

when I put the collar on the insert ;the grey one], and then install the dovetail or any other bit, the bit is NOT centered in the hole.

consequently the dovetails are off gig about 1-1.5 mm on each side.

the base came with the table and has only 1 orientation to install it on the router.
-14 degree dovetail bit or really any other bit.....
-there is the red ring and then the grey inner ring that snap into place.

I think that may be wrong baseplate, ??
- are there other baseplates available??
- are there any further suggestions to FIX this maddening problem.

Your help is appreciated. I'll try and look here daily,

thanks, Ted .......................
..................I guess I'll get back and enjoy these great spring Olympics

Greetings Ted and welcome to the router forum. Thank you for joining us. You just need to center the router as stated by Jack.

Hi Ted, welcome to the forum
I think I understand that you are using the bushings on the table, correct?
If this is the situation it sounds as if the router is not centered on the plate. Is this a new setup or have you had it awhile and just noticed the problem?
I think I would make some very careful measurements and find out where the centerline(s) of the bit is relative to the centerline(s) of the table plate. Get back to us with what you find.
Suggestion - repost this under the "Table mounted routing" forum for more exposure.
Good luck

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Thanks Jack.
the table is NEW.
he baseplate is screwed onto the router, a 3 and one half HP Freud.
the baseplate only goes in one configuration.
the plate and router is then dropped into the rectangular hole in the table.
the collar is screwed into the existing hole, and the 7/8" collar.
- everything is tightend and ready to go, and the 14 degree dovetail bit is still off center to the left by at least 2mm.

now it really is strange that this happens in a brand new set.

the dovetail jig that I am using, is then not able to cut correctly.

Yes the baseplate only fits in the table in the already cut and I thought centered OK Hole.

I may not be stating the problem accurately enough but I hope this helps a bit more.
