(Prometheus) doth sayeth:
I must have described it poorly- The plate the router is mounted on is
shop-made from hardboard, and sits in a rabbet so it is flush with the
table. To adjust, I pull the whole plate, router attached, so it's like
just adjusting a router with a large baseplate. The offset for the table
is built into the plate.
I don't think you mumbled. You've got a setup somewhat similar to
mine. My base, plate, or whatever you wanna call it is 1/2"plywood,
about 1'X8", and drop in a cutout so it's even with the table top. I
adjust it to the base, and as long as it's adjusted to that, it's
adjusted to the table top. No prob. I don't see any problem with
accuracy. Yank it, adjust it, drop it back. I'd say it's less fiddley
then a jack, probably as fast, or faster. And, way more frugel. Mine
works well enough if, and when, I make another router table, I'll use
the same system again.
If it can't kill you, it ain't a sport.
