I need help from someone with more experience in using routers in special applications.
I am making a jig that will let my router slide along a sled type jig. The purpose is to smooth the bandsaw blade marks for the underside curve I will cut on the rocking chair’s arm rest. This is so I can get a good fit for gluing the arm rests to the upper arm rail.
There are two guide rails that I need to mount to the bottom of my router’s base plate. Initially I was thinking I would have to drill screw holes to mount these wood rails to it. However, after “sleeping” on this issue I realized that this is probably a good application for double-side tape. I have given a image of what these guide rails looks like in a similar application below.
Do you believe these wood guide rails are adhered to the bottom of this router’s base plate with tape? Please let me know the best for me to fix similar guide rails to the base of my Bosh MRC23EVS plunge router base.
