Well I got it all done and it wasn't all that bad. Fired the router up tonight and works great. As of now my only complaint is like many others is the Bosch RA 1171 table fence is a pain. However I see a fix right away. The carriage bolts are just long enough to get thru the top. A few more turns and they fall out of the knob. Since the knob is a pass thru, it really doesn't matter how long the carriage bolt is. Using a 2 1/2 rather than the 1 3/4 solves the issue. Really like the Router Raizer, well worth the price and works great. At first it seems a bit overwhelming but once you get into it, it's not bad. Instructions are really good. Router is so quiet I was shocked, thought it was broke at first, but like I read, they are quiet. Table was really easy to put together as well. Only a few alignment issues on the wall, but not too bad. Top is really flat and level. Plate is a bit tricky to level. There are 4 leveling screws under the plate and 4 lock down screws on top. I used a long level when I first set it up and thought I had it. When I did my first test cut I felt the wood catching in spots. I used a 6 inch piece of 1x4 this time and just ran it back and forth around the table as I leveled it. When you tighten the top screws it will pull it down, so you have to over adjust to compensate. Got used to the feel and then got it really nice. Got late so I came in. I will make a few more videos later to show some other things I did, but for now I thought videos are better than pictures but can post some if anyone needs something specific. Thanks for all the support, I am sure I will have many more questions.
Don't have enough posts for a link to YouTube, but my channel is Pitt Stop Electronics. I just did a Google search with this "Pitt Stop Electronics youtube" and it came up with Video #7 of the nine I did. They all have same name with # at end. Take a peek and see what you think, some are long winded.
