Purchased a plunge router from Ryobi and the recommended Ryobi router table.
Problem is that with the router attached to the table and the plunger completely compressed only a small fraction of the bit extends above the table. Any suggestions ! ! !

Hi Bill

Some plunge routers will have this error when you mount them into a router table.
Some of the bits are just to short.
You can use/get this item(s) to get around the error.

Router Collet Extension

They do have FREE shipping that will save you a bit of money. :)

But do check your manual 1st. and make sure it's not a error with the router.

One small note***did you take the springs out of the router base ?,some of them just can't compress the springs that much when the springs are in place.

You're Welcome Bill

I'm sure you will like them just like I do :)

Why you're wating for them to come in look in your tool box for a good used short 18mm wrench to use on the 1/4" one and a 1 1/16" one for the 1/2" one. ( 1/4" one,I use a short type Snap-On for the one I have,about 4 1/2" long.)

The 1 1/16" is a big wrench but you can get around this by finding one of the Stamped out wrenchs that come with many tools (called a service wrench)
Many have a 1" one as a standard size or metic one that you take to the grinder and open it up to 1 1/16", if you don't have one in the junk box you can find them at the flea market for a buck or two. :)

Thanks Bj - Ordered two collet extenders, one for 1/4" shank bits and one for the 1/2". Sounds like the solution I needed. Will give them a try as soon as they are shipped. Mr. Bill
