I want to use my ZenBot 2424 to drill precisely straight holes up the center of 3/4" dowels. In order to do this I would build a fixture and would drill a single row of holes through my table surface to accommodate the length of the dowels. I would be careful to miss the belt and the bars underneath. That part I have figured out. The collet is positioned squarely over the traveling bar underneath the table. So here's the question: in order to get the collet to be centered about an inch in front of the traveling bar so that it could drill into the row of dowels, I would have to add a 1" spacer plate to my router mount. I can make such a spacer, I think, but would I be hurting my machine if I did this? Are you aware of others who have tried to do this (for instance to cut dovetails into the ends of drawer sides)?
