This is no ordinary router base. With its micro-adjustable guide-rod mechanism, it is a versatile system that offers excellent control over a range of router operations. You can position the bit directly using layout marks on the stock, allowing fast, accurate set-up without the usual trial and error. Such precise control also lets you use an undersized bit to creep up on a final fit incrementally, especially useful when mortising or cutting a dado for plywood or other nominally sized sheet stock.

The offset base has a large 11-1/4" x 6-1/2" footprint to provide stability when edge-routing, even when working around corners, and its wide surface offers good registration against a straightedge. An included pin lets you pivot the router around a 6mm hole to cut circles from 1-1/2" to 17-1/2" in diameter; larger circles (up to about 48" in diameter) are produced using the supplied compass hub and trammel rods. The base comes with a pair of guide pins for centered or offset mortising in stock up to 5" wide, as well as a support leg that helps maintain stability when routing tall or narrow stock. Adding a shopmade guide strip to the underside of the base permits indexed cutting of dados or flutes in series, spaced up to approximately 8-1/2" apart.

Well made from premium materials, the unit has a rugged Perspex base plate for smooth travel, with aluminum and steel components. Plunge routers make full use of the base's capabilities, although some operations can be performed with fixed-base models.

It comes with 7mm (9/32") and 8mm (5/16") guide rods to accommodate many router models, including Porter Cable 690/890 series, Milwaukee 5615/16, DeWalt 616, 618, 621, Bosch 1617/18/19, MRC/MRP/MRF, Makita 1100 & 3600 series, Hitachi M12VC, Ryobi R163K and Festool 1010 routers. 10mm (25/64") and 12mm (15/32") guide rods are also available; contact our Customer Service Department for details.

An edge guide attachment is available separately to serve as a fence when referencing cuts from the edge of the workpiece. The 10-1/2" acrylic guide has threaded brass inserts for mounting to any of three positions on the base plate, as well as for adding a sacrificial fence for cuts close to the edge of the stock.

Also sold separately, the flush-trimming attachment makes quick, safe work of levelling edge banding. The 5/16" thick Perspex plate mounts to the underside of the base, providing clearance for the bit and allowing the base to act as an outrigger for stability. A bearing runs along the edge of the work to guide the bit. This allows the router to sit flat on the work, rather than balancing on a narrow edge as when using a conventional flush-trimming bit. The attachment can also be used for trimming screw plugs or joinery wedges.

The base and both attachments are made in U.K.
