    I have this model router (315.17461), that I just bought from an estate sale. There was no Owner's Manual to go with it. Right below the motor, there is this red/white ring that has numbers on it (i.e. 7/32, 13/64, 3/16, etc). This ring goes all the way around the outside diameter of the...

  8. Table-mounted Routing
    A question less asked: I would be interested in a motorised lift , controlled by a remote. Beyond the convenience, I think it will contribute to a more accurate functionality. Today all the components required for building such lift are cheap. But, I don’t see new products on the market. There...

    Stupid me! I have a Hitachi router and needed a router table. I picked up an old but still new in the box router table (Craftsman) from the local Classifieds. I incorrectly assumed that router mounting holes were fairly standard. Apparently, they are not. So I wonder if there is such a thing...

    Dear Members, I'm looking for members' opinions here or user experience with Shaper Origin. I live in Hungary and I can't seem to find anyone who has tested it. What concerns me most is the durability - anyone using it actively, like on a daily basis? How much maintenance or repair is needed...

    I recently purchased a router and put 1/4 bit into and used it once. I then took the bit out and when I went back to use another bit the collet will not loosen far enough for it to fit anymore. Any help?
