    Good Day Members, Finished a solid North American Black Walnut Toilet Paper Holder. Used a Freud Roman Ogee bit 38-104, with my Bosch 1617EVS. Results were good. Dowel pins & glue were used to connect the arms. Finishing was performed with Watco Natural Oil. See photos. Your advice will be...

    My Freud FT2000E router just stopped running, at first I thought it was because of the soft start/speed control because it did not show any other signs it would just not turn on. After eliminating the speed control and wiring the power direct to the brushes the router still would not run. I...

    THis isn't quite like the other posts I've found on Freud speed control issues - but there's a lot out there I haven't seen. My Freud starts - but sometimes does not come up to full speed - just to a 'slow' speed that is probably less than 1,000 rpm. Sometimes, when it does come up to speed...

    Hello everyone, My name is Thad and I am fairly new to woodworking. My step-father loved to work with wood and had an impressive shop prior to his passing in 2009. It was something that looked interesting, but it never grabbed me - until now. I kick myself for not being interested in it sooner...

    Hello, new to forum, great resource. I bought a Freud FT3000 to use in my router table. I looked at many routers, but this one met all my needs (above table adjustments, single wrench bit removal, 3.25 hp). So having said that, am I supposed to remove the plunge spring from the router before I...

    Hi, This is my introduction....I have used a small 1 hp router in the past, mainly for rounding off corners on shelves etc., and it's one of my favorite tools. I recently started building an electric guitar, and I just purchased the Freud FT3000E plunge router. Seems like a solid machine...

    I have a Freud FT3000VCE router that has 4 base plate mounting holes. Every template I can find, including the one included with the manual has 3 mounting holes that are completely different. Does anyone have a Frued FT3000VCE 4-hole template?

    I recently purchased the Freud FT1702 router Kit. Actually I purchased two. One for my table and one for above table work. My only problem is I can't find the FT1710 edge guide for it anywhere. Are they still making it? Does anybody know where I can purchase it or an aftermarket brand that will...

    Hi Everyone! I'm Eric. I've been a trim carpeter for the past 20 years and I had a little stint as a small town lumberyard manager and missed the construction field. I saw this forum and it looked very interesting. I'm looking at spending more time in my garage doing different projects. One...

    I just got a FT1702 router package for Christmas from the Missus. I started to make an edge guide for it, and took a look to see what size screws are needed to secure it. The manual lists sizes for everything except the base plate screws, template/vaccum adapter screws and the edge guide...
  14. Table-mounted Routing
    Hello! Glad to have found this forum. I recently started getting back into woodworking and wood carving. I recently picked up a Freud 1702 on special at Lowes....My immediate need is to find or make a router table preferably using Freuds micro-adjustable fence as I will also use it for...

    Hi, I'm a relative novice woodworker. Spend more time buying tools and reading than either using the tools or any of the projects I've made. I recently bought a Freud router with fixed and plunge bases that was on closeout at Lowes. Discovered the 1/2 inch collet was missing. Does anyone have...

    Question #1 I have an older FT1700VCE purchased spring 2007. Is it possible to convert it into the the 1702VCEK by simply purchasing the plunge base separately? Is anything else different? The spindle lock? Question #2 Have other owners experienced the following? Suddenly the spindle lock...
