Well, I’d argue about that exactly 1/16’’ based on geometrical considerations. It depends on where the clamp is and where the 1/8’’ is measured. You basically need to make sure the distance between the pivot point and the router bit centre is the same as the distance from the router bit centre to the point of measurement.

It’s hard not to fall for that “arm race” when you’re building a new piece of equipment I must say. There is always this nagging feeling in the back of your mind that you might need this fancy feature one day. You also know that building-in the feature is more exciting than having to upgrade a piece of equipment you got used to over time.

It’s so difficult to get that balance right between what is optional but is better built-in than added-on.
