Hi hgporter

I have seen one or two on the forum, you may want to do a search on this forum.

If I recall they had two running that supported a board that held the router up in place (off the stock) and you would move router from side to side over the the stock to remove just a bit in a pass or two or three or more,they look easy to make and use. :)

Here's a link or two that may help

Hi hgporter

It sounds like you may not want to use the router for this job BUT a 3" wide hand power planer or a 3" wide hand belt sander, that you can find in some pawn shops at the right price.
You should find many of the 3" power planers that should be in good shape because most people buy them and only use them a time or two on a door frame.
Now for the belt sander that's a long shot, you need to check them out well b/4 you put the bucks down on the counter for them, many people cook them or to say over work them but they can and do a good job with some 40grit paper on them they will rip tons of stock off quick some times to quick. (low spots) they do like to dig a bit.

For about 15.oo bucks,,,3" power planers
