Question Do-hicky on PC 890 plunge base?

I just bought a PC 890 router with fixed and plunge bases. On the base of the plunge base there is an extra plastic part which has an upward projecting ring, the sole purpose of which appears to be to keep the router from going as low as it othewise would. There is no mention of that part in the instruction manual nor on the accompanying CD which features two good looking men that for some reason look like the guys at the top of this page .

Anyone know what its purpose is?

Sounds like the dust cover for setting up the vacuum...but maybe you could supply a photo?

Well I have just completed my first PDF E-Course, which is 10 embedded lessons from the Router Workshop Video Series. This is a must have PDF that you can get some very good pointers on how to use the router. Get your FREE copy here!

That's what it is....a cover for the router bit to create a vacuum.
