I want to share how I made my own router D-handle base. I’ve been thinking about that for a long time. I was inspired by Carol Reed’s design. It can be adapted to all routers.
The sub-base is made out of 3/8’’-thick Plexiglass and the handle is nothing but two pieces of scrap plywood glued together. Two short afternoons spent in the shop and it was done. I wonder why I waited so long.
No more tipping in sight when milling edges.
Take a look at the details and short videos on my website, build you own and show you work.
NB: In my area, a commercial D-handle base for this router costs over $100.
When retired, you don’t have much money to buy it… but you have more time to build it!
