I'm new to the forum and this is a first. I'm not really a seasoned woodworker but have had to do this out of necessity of finishing a house that was started by someone else.
My Question: I have a new Bosh router table with a new Porter Cable router mounted. I don't know model numbers and they are not readily available to me as they are at the work site. Last night I was trying to rout window styles/rails and I could not get the router to go low enough on the table to get the proper depth of my cut. I had a very small router bit that I had seated all the way down on the collet (??) and it still stuck up too high. I pulled and adjusted the router as low as I could go on the table and it would have been way too deep of a cut.
Is there some kind of attachement that I need to put on my router so there is a greater varience?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
You may have the bit set above the baseplate and that is EXTREMELY dangerous.
Before you go any further, take some pictures and post it for us to see. I may have seen this once before with a 3 1/2" bit and it wasn't pretty.
We also need the make and model of your router and your table and if possible take a picture of your stile and rail bit set.
Look, I'm reading between the lines. I may be raising a false alarm here and I may be way off base but I'd rather be safe than sorry I didn't speak up.
If you haven't reached your 10 post requirement for the forum to be able to post pictures, say hello to 10 people in the introduction.
I'll check tonight to see if you've posted the pictures.
You other guys: the Porter Cable only has a 1 3/16" guide hole. If his rail and stile set is a tad over 1 3/16", that maybe his problem.
Marshoaks please fill out your profile so we can see where you are. That makes a big difference in equipment. People in Europe can only gain access to certain tools, in North America we have selection up the ying yang and the poor fellows in OZ have to import from New Zealand ;-) Oh I just love being a s**t disturber
