So far you have all been very helpful, and I thank you.
I am currently running a bosch 1617evs router with the ra1166 plunge base.
this is the first router I have ever owned or used, and I have been using it for about a month doing some serious routing, if you know what I mean. the thing is diesel!
I am currently using a 2 inch double flute bit, which sits right at the bottom of the plate when I am totally unplunged. I would also like to be able to use a 2.5 inch bit but it won’t fit because the plunge base is too short and with the 2.5 inch bit in it sticks out of the plate a half an inch.
I was wondering:
is this an ok thing to do? I have read the owners manual several times but it doesn’t talk about doing or not doing this.
What do you think, experts?
