  1. Table-mounted Routing
    Hi all, I bought a Triton TRA 001, and Trend insert plate. I took off the plastic slider base and marked up where to drill on the insert. However, the screws that mounted the slider base to the router are far too small to go through the 9.8 mm insert plate and securely fix the router - Triton...
  2. Portable Routing
    Hi Everyone! I wasn't sure if I should post this here or under table mounted routers but assuming almost no one mounts this little guy I opted to put it here where more people who own one would see it. I'm new to routers and trying to figure out how to get the most bang for my buck ;) I make...
  3. General Routing
    I've got a freud ct1700vce, and like it quite a bit. Lately, when raising it in the router table, it skips/slips, like a nut is stripped. I haven't changed the setup since I got the router 2 years ago. A brief inspection makes it look like the stop rod button/tongue isn't engaging the...
  4. General Routing
    Well I did, it looked good in the shop and I always fancied myself as a master craftsman! So, one, most probably dumb, question. To operate this router you have to keep the button pressed, how do you over ride this when it is table mounted?

  6. Table-mounted Routing
    I have an opportuntiy to buy a Skil 1825 router, used, for $30. I will need to buy a ¼" collet adapter for it, but parts are easy to obtain, apparently. Does anyone have any comments of this router as a table router? I notice it has a 4 screw pattern on the base, so I suppose I'll have to drill...
  7. General Routing
    i purchased and have been using this router for some rabbeting. I'd like to move on to more challenging projects and learn more about this router. I'm building a stow-and-go table (Roland Johnson) and i'm not sure what hardware I need. There is a black sub-base attached to the base. can this be...
  8. Table-mounted Routing
    I have a new Freud FT2200/2000 router installed on the mounting plate for the table. I did not need to drill any holes and the predrilled already lined up. However, I have searched through all instruction manuals and cannot locate what to do next. I see others saying the router has to be locked...
  9. Table-mounted Routing
    New to the forums and hoping to get some guidance here. I'm pretty new to woodworking, and have just started getting into router work. I acquired a DW625 off ebay, and used it for some freehand work on a armoire I've been building. My original intent was to just order the doors for the...

    Just bought a DeWalt 618 Router and mounted it to a Bench Doug Table. I am not sure if I mounted it in the right rotation direction. I know that the direction should be counter clockwise but the DeWalt manual does not give me a clue. I do need help, I am very new to this.
