  1. Table-mounted Routing
    Had resigned myself to having to work with my Triton TRA001 router hand held, but then an RTA300 with stand came up on Gumtree for $250 so I just had to grab it. Problem is, the mounting plate doesn't look like what's in the user manual. Is this an older pre-2000/2002 RTA300? Did the guy...

    To all experts and experienced Woodworkers, Please suggest me how to build a lift mechanism. Even though my Bosch router table (RA1181) and router claim to have macro and micro adjustment capability, I feel it is not working or very robust design.
