Good morning all,
I’m starting to make my first router jig, for keyholes, and I’m noticing that the vertical supports for the plunge base extend wider than the circular plexiglas base. Since the plexiglas base is only 1/4” tall, the base of the vertical supports are 1/4” above the table top (the height of the plexi base), I would have to make all my jigs from 1/4” tall wood.
When making jigs how do people account for this? Just account for the width into the jig and control the position by hand? My jig opening would not be square to allow the circle base to ride squarely.
Or do I make a substitute base that is deeper than the 1/4” base limit (1/2”) ?
Many thanks in advance.
