Hey, Mike that looks just like my jack! Buddies do think alike! My setup is the same except I don’t have a nice router table like yours. Thanks for the pictures.

Nope, I’m a little tired, had to get up at, 03:30 to make it to work by, 0520, so a little lay down time was appreciated. LOL.

No problem on the side winder photo. I had to do my morning neck stretching exercises, so I killed two birds with one stick. LOL

Good job, Mike. My son bought me the same router table you are using. I used it for quite some time until I got my present one. As a matter of fact, I moved the switch to the new table. I also use the universal insert from that router table on my fixed base router because it is larger and the center hole is larger too.

Question: did you remove the springs from the router? Do you use the lock lever after you get the height you want, or do you have another technique?

Yes, I lock it in place john once I get it set. mike

In the shop today and found out the hard way that the locking lever on my plunge router has weakened.I should be able to do the same and leave the jack under my router with on problems shouldn’t I.Do you think the vibration would shake the jack away from the router?

Mike, this is great, I wondered how to use my cheap plunge router in a table. I know I never would have thought of this, thanks!
