Make a fence for it, hang one of your spare routers in it, install a roundover bit in it and leave it set up.

Don't have a spare router...? Let's buy one...>:)

I guess it depends...do you have another table that you can use...? Are you planning on building one...? Use the plate for the new build, maybe...? Do you have space for another table...?

If you keep it, it looks like you will need a DYI fence and related nuts and bolts and an external switch...not a big lift. Lots of plans for fences...

If you don't now have a table, you can DIY what you will need to put this one in operation and make/buy something else later...

Check out www.ereplacementparts.com for hardware (bolts, carriage bolts, knobs, etc)...check parts for the 1180 and the 1181...

...and Welcome to the Forum...

Hey Herb, you might be right to think that Quarantineitis has set in somewhat. I just read Stick's note about rule bending and taking some things private. I've concluded that I should also let things ride and refrain from further input of this sort to this thread. Although I was beginning to enjoy this semi malicious repartee my better judgment says it can't go anywhere but down. Besides, It really doesn't have anything to do with routing or working wood or making any sort of sawdust. I'm gonna try to keep to the high road but I'm fearful that I might again fall off the wagon. This quarantine is playing up my weaknesses in some part and has caused me to recall admonishments made to me by my old granny, bless her soul, when she felt it was her place to correct her progeny of their errant ways. To curb my sarcasm or my occasional slide to ridicule she would say "more to be pitied than censured" of a person. My old granny often thought it was her place to correct us in lieu of our parents. She drew from a very large stock of quaint expressions and if none of her attempts at educating us worked to her satisfaction she could always fall back to knocking us into the next week with a short piece of 2 x 4 to the side of the head. Gets 'em every time, she would say with a satisfied smile. She was a sweet old lady, carried the good book everywhere. She couldn't read but she carried the book. It impressed people. She aged well but we finally had to bury her out under her favourite tree. I think she died a week later.

Okay, now lets make sawdust!!

Tom...ROFLMAO...After I get up off the floor, clean up the coffee spray from everything in front of me (including my screen and keyboard) and regain my composure, I will continue with my now totally different day. I happened to be with a couple of friends and read them your post about Granny (hope you don't mind) and they're still laughing.

The story reminded me of my Mother's wooden spoon, straight out of the sauce on the stove...! Maybe they should have taken up woodworking instead...:grin:

(I hope I put all the commas in the right place)

Thanks for your post...nicely done, especially if one reads between the lines...:grin:

C'mon Frank...drop it...

You speak of speech being free but seek to restrict others equal right...

You speak of the respect for a public forum but publicly admonish when it should be done with private message with the individual you feel offended you...

You speak of others exercising a bit of dark humor but your signature line, "Remember to eat your desert first as you may die before your food arrives", wreaks of it...

Don't you think it's about time you stopped using a public forum as your podium...? Especially as its foundation is weakened with the same content you preach against...and if you really feel that you need to do this in public, how about doing it elsewhere and not hijacking the original poster's thread...

@Cherryville Chuck or other Moderators...

Charles, how about deleting all the garbage posts in this thread and give it back to the original poster...?

...see... https://www.ereplacementparts.com/bosch-ra1180-2610914514-routing-table-parts-c-128_1119_9878.html

You don't need all the parts listed...you will need...

1. External switch...readily available almost anywhere
2. Fence...assume DIY by you
3. Knobs...to hold the fence in place, two should do it...item 9 on ereplacementparts link
4. Square head nuts...that will fit the underside of the table (channels) and the threads of the knobs (3. above)...probably 1/4" or 5/16"
5. Insert rings...items 16 on ereplacementparts link

In place of the knobs and square head nuts, you could also use a carriage bolt of the right size, have it come up through the table and your fence and into a female knob (threads on the inside of the knob)

Take a look at the link I gave you and see if you think you might need anything else...

Good luck...yell if you need more info...

Nickp, I just have to disagree with you on this one. Just a teeny little bit. It should stop, as you say, but by staying in view it could be for the greater good, as they say. It's a good indicator of what can/should be said and what can/should be tolerated.
I agree that the thread was highjacked and I know I contributed to it's debasing. Me bad! Penance, yes, I'll remove my dust mask for the next three times I'm making sawdust. That oughta teach me right from wrong for a while. (cough, cough).

In all seriousness, just for a moment, I think (cough) I fell victim to Herb's Quarantineitis. (Cough, cough) Excuse me, I must get myself a strong drink to assuage my throat. It feels like I've been eating Burdock, or sawdust, or something.

Excellent point, Tom...and I retract my request for consideration for the deletes...:smile:

I, too, should have taken the high road...gonna need to move to higher elevation...:grin:
