Here is my shopmade D-handle router base. I’ve been thinking about that for for a long time. I was inspired by Carol Reed’s design.
The sub-base is made out of 3/8’’-thick Plexiglass and the handle is nothing more than two pieces of plywood scraps glued together and shaped as my hand saw. 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.
See all details, pictures and even 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… but you have more time!
