Newbie here with the first of many questions. Why is my Skil router base shaped like a letter "D". I originaly thought the flat side would be for running against a flat guide but quickly found out that if you rotate the router ever so slightly the cut is no longer i a straight line. What is the purpose of the flat edge of the base then?

Woodnut65,

Thanks for the advise. What made me ask was the diagram in the (small) manual shows the opperator using the round edge of the base when following a guide fence and not the flat edge. This makes a differance when measuing the distance from the bit to the guide fence. Do most opperators us the flat edge or is this something realtively new to router bases?
