Hello all and first let me thank all of you! Your advice, and these forums, have helped me to further my woodworking skills. I am in your debt.
I am presently building the Ultimate Tool Stand featured here:
I am almost done and am very happy with the results. I finished up the router insert this weekend. I used 1/4 plexiglass and made my own router insert. The insert is tight and pretty darn flush with the table. I loaded up my router into the table, and did some test cuts, since I have never actually used a router table before. I have a craftsman 10 amp router in case that matters. I used my 3/4 dado bit as I need do cut some dado’s for my T-track.
When I ran my test wood through the router, I am getting a groove that is 0.78”. The router bit measures 0.745”. I tried to make sure the work piece was placed tightly against the fence as it was being run through. I did 2 different test cuts and had the same results. I assume that either the work piece is wobbling or the router bit is wobbling or the whole router might be flexing the flexiglass. I’m not sure how to figure out where the issue is. Any advice?
