Ping: Pat Warner


Your router bases for my Bosch has pretty much straightened out my dovetail jig problems. Now, fine adjustments to the router bit make repeatable differences. I have control. Ya did good! Thanks.

Swampbug, Could you elaborate a little on the problems you were having and how the bases fixed them? I have a bosch that has a few problems (bits are not square to the base) and i'm wondering if that's one of the problems you had and if the new base fixed it.
Thanks Swampbug,

Hi Mike, I can see your problem with the router. I had difficulty achieving a good dovetail fit(half-blind) with my PC dovetail jig. My problem was that my when placed bit up, the router base has a slight 'peak" in the center. This tended to allow the router to rock from true vertical. In my case it made consistent results impossible and bit depth adjustments useless. Just to mention, the bases from Pat Warner solved that and they are transparent which turns out to be more beneficial that I would have believed. The base also allows the Bosch to use PC template guides which offers minimum obstruction to viewing the bit in use. In my case they were well worth the cost, and I would do it again in a heartbeat..

I have his offset base on my Dewalt 621 plunge router and it solves the small stock base tippyness problem when hand held doing edge work.

I have one of his offset bases on a PC 690. The offset is so small that one of the stock knobs has to be removed to clear the knob in the base (by design). The stability difference is like night and day and, because of the small size, the base really doesn't get in the way or feel cumbersome. Best on the market, IMO.
