The bit I am using is a pattern bit bearing on the top. The bottom line is that I can rout several pieces of wood at the correct depth, then if I forget to check the tightness of the depth gauge and plow through the next piece. So, the depth is right. It is the action of the plunge hitting the stop that seems to be loosening up. The porter Cable model I have has a swivel type stop so that you can make your cuts in steps without resetting your final depth. I don’t use that feature on this project, I am only cutting about 1/8” deep total . Because the stop rotates the tightener is “funky”? Hard to tighten.
Does anyone else have this issue?
