Thanks for the suggestions
Thanks all for your suggestions. However, my local Ace hardware does not have lexan, Oak Park does not sell it except on thier own fences, and they do not sell the taller wooded shield that Rick uses so frequently on the Router Workshop.
Also, in the series 1200, both the executive desk and the table for the chiffoniere (sp) Rick is very clearly using a 3 1/8 center base plate with a brass insert. Oak Park does not sell them. Likewise in the table episode, Bob has a large piece of the material, including the yellow laminate, from which the Oak Park router table tops are made, but it has not cutout. Even with my limited experience I appreciate the need for keeping the hole around the bit as small as possible, and I do have a few bits larger than 1 1/2 in diameter.
Where can I obtain the brass inserts for the 3 1/8 center base plate and a larger piece of the laminated baltic birch used for the router table tops?
(I noticed BobandRick online as I started writing this; I hope they see it.
