Default Table Mount Freud VCE3000

when router is mounted under the table should it be in the compressed position or the exented position? and when using the "above the table" tool for adjusting the height of the router, before making any of these adjustments, do you have to release the "Plunge Locking lever" and hen finished the height adjustment, Lock the Plunge Locking Lever? and last question when using the above the table "Depth Adjustment Tool" in the "above table spindle Lock acces", you do this only so you can remove or insert a bit above the tale? and it only purpose is this?

thanks

Hi Joe - Welcome to the forum
I generally run mine all the way down unless I'll be back using it in the next few hours or so.. that would be extended position. I haven't been using the lock lever at all lately. With the springs left in, the springs and lead screw tend to hold the position pretty. and, finally, yes, you need to use the tool, or a similar device to engage the spindle lock to change bits. I don't use the tool that was provided at all. In many cases the fence is too close to the access hole to allow use of the tool what with that collar around it. Instead, I picked up a 3/8" drive 10mm internal hex socket from a local auto parts place and a mechanics speed wrench to use instead.

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

+1 for the 10mm internal hex socket and the speed wrench, works very good! I got mine from Sears. As far as the router goes, works great, I'm very happy with mine.
