Location of Sommerfeld's rubber grommet
New to the site (and routing) and I've been lurking and reading a lot. Truly a wealth of knowledge and experience on this forum. Thank you all for sharing.
I have recently purchased the Tongue and Groove set of bits from Sommerfeld. His videos demonstrate how to set the height, etc, and once set, the other bits are are interchangeable without further adjustment. He shows a little grommet that the base of the bit rests upon.
I'm using a Porter Cable 7518 table mounted router. I'll probably butcher the terminology here as I describe my question(s).
Can anyone tell me where Sommerfeld's grommet is supposed to end up? If I remove the top nut, which is connected to the collet, is the grommet supposed to go into that piece (and keep the shaft of the bit from protruding) or below it ? The space below that collet is pretty deep so if I put it below the collet the bit bottoms out. If If I put the grommet into the collet, will that affect how the shaft of the bit is secured?
It'll probably require a call to Sommerfeld's on Monday, but I thought I'd take a chance and see if anyone knew.
