Freud FT1700 VCE problem.
Hi members. I have had the fixed body component of this kit attached to router FT1700 VCE and mounted in a table for about a year, working well. Recently when using the above table device to raise the router it rises about one inch and then binds. I find I am having to support underneath the router body to help the router to rise smoothly. My first instinct was to lubricate the barrel of the fixed base but I think I read a comment that lubricants and wood routers don't go well together, so I am reluctant to use a teflon, graphite or other based lubricant on the barrel of the router to try to help. Any suggestions. Oldrusty.
