Add a couple of springs and you might have something....... Let me think on that for a while......aniceone2hold said:This got me to thinking that it wouldnt be too difficult to build a baseplate to attach a trim router to one of the old Portalign drill adapters. The motor would easily fit between the rods. A piece of plexiglass with a couple pieces of hardwood attached for the guide holes. Perhaps brass bushings to reduce wear? The Portalign has an adjustable depth stop, the guide rods can be set below the surface to act as alignment pins. What do you think?
Tried to find a store with on of these on display to see how it felt but they seem to want to keep this model in the box and display different one. Since the plunge action is what I want to feel it seems I'm out of luck.....Neanderthal said:looking for a small plunge router /trimmer and ran accro st this http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000223OE/qid=1113854338/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1_etk-tools/102-6104089-3485707?v=glance&s=hi&n=228013
