« Part 3: making the maple solid wood handles Part 4 of Machineshop benefits in woodworking series Part 5: some workshop aids for clamping and guaging »

Hello, I’ve been working on my plunge router base, for my bosch colt palm router, and it is now completed.

here is a quick 4 min. demo. of it being used in making a plunge groove in a piece of stock.


here is some pics of the completed project.

This was all made from scrap material, and the main cylinder, is made from some 3” aluminum round bar I have in my metal bin, so nothing was purchased for this project, just stuff I already had available to use in my shop.

Have fun in the shop…
