Before I got a router table, I used a straight edge to make dados
and rabbits. Worked good, lasted a long time. But since I got a
router table, my router stays attached to the table - mostly!
I got a set as a gift, plunge and fixed, so price was not an issue,
but I have yet to use the plunge base. I make mortices with a drill
and chisels, more fun anyway.
Can anyone here on the Wreck tell me what a plunge base might be
used for, besides mortices???
