I came across a very interesting product on the net. It is a plung base made by Micro Fence. I have a trim router and this base is made for this type of router. The price is VERY high but the workmenship looks first rate. I can not find anything about it here on Lumberjocks. Has anyone used this tool? It sounds great for inlay etc. I would like to know from someone who has used this before I think about saviing up for it. Thanks

This base is the best ever made. A friend has one and he left it for me to try out for a few months. It is an outstanding tool. It is on my to buy list. We did some very detailed inlaying and hinge mortising with it. You can adjust it 1/1000 of an inch increments. The owner of the company is a machinist and woodworker. He is very knowledgeable in this field. I highly recommend this base. The most common router to use is the Bosch Colt. Makes a great combination. As far as price? You definitely get what you pay for. Well worth the money.

Dale, that looks like a great tool. I didn’t catch the price but, it looks like a quality tool, if that’s what you are after. I’d like to try one

There is a similar product called the router wizard made by Eagle Jigs in Kansas City

www.eaglejigs.com/

It looks like the difference is that you mount your plunge base to the Router Wizard. That leaves you a larger base to stabilize your router. It does not measure to thousands of an inch but is accurate enough for what most of us do.

It is similarly priced to the microfence.
