Since you likely are going to get the Craftman router, just leave the base attached and remove the motor to eliminate any possibility of sag.In fact, it is exactly an inch . . . . do you think that's going to be an issue?
I learned basic wiring in the 7th grade. Electricity taught by Mr. Albright.Okay so I have the following (so far) . . .
- My Craftsman 12.0 Amp Fixed Based Router (model 320-2768)
- My DeWalt DWD110K Drill
- My (soon to be) desk-turned-Router Table
- A very nice set of drill and driver bits (extra Christmas gift from my fiancee')
Because my router will be primarily (if not exclusively) mounted under the table, I am thinking of installing a power switch to my desk/table - you know, like a light switch or button or something - so that I can power up my router via the switch without having to go underneath to do it. Does anyone know of any online resources for information as to how to do this? I can't imagine it's terribly difficult - but, you know me, I like to see some information in it (preferably video or info w/ images) if at all possible. (I'm going to post this on the Router Forum as well).
Thanks - and HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
Heh ... Unfortunately, I went to a Catholic/Carmelite based all-boys High School - and there was no wood/mechanic shop.I learned basic wiring in the 7th grade. Electricity taught by Mr. Albright.
They will tell you how to wire it at Home Depot or ACE Hardware.
They can sell you everything you need.
Not to worry, my friend ... not going to let this little element stop me. I'm just thinking it would be a nifty additional element to the whole thing - and I was thinking/hoping that it might be as simple a case (these days) of an extension cord plugging into a switch/switchbox of some sort. If it involves some kind of specilized wiring (for which I have no practical training whatsoever), then I may just nix this whole idea - as it is not imperative to my overall project plans.rwl7532 said:But don't let that stop you. Just plug it in using an extension cord for now.
I repeat: DON'T stop.
I actually kind of hope I stay on the "kiddie coaster" with this, my first venture into the world of woodworking . . .An email came back when I ordered something today.
It said "you're on the woodworking roller coaster. Welcome aboard."
I replied: "I hear there is no cure!!"
