I'm thinking along the same lines. I can see where the z axis adjustment via rotating the vertical panel will change your x axis stop settings.
I assume that y axis is travelled via the plunge of the router.
nice jig. please keep this thread alive.     Bridger

Well actually the x and y are both on tracks. I think you can see the two sets of tracks and guides (X & Y ) in the pics. I built the jig for a fixed base router but one could use a plunge too I guess. To use the jig you just mount the workpiece in the clamps then pull the table assembly towards you. Start the router, plunge the tables in the bit a little and then slide back and forth. Repeat this to the desired depth. A Multi-Router owner gave me the advice of plunging both ends of your mortise first. That is to say, go to one of the stops and plunge all the way in. Go to the other and do the same. Then retract and make multiple passes between the plunged holes. He says its just his technique he prefers.

I guess I should mention the toggle clamps are not yet installed. They will mount on the adjustable fence to lock the workpiece in place during use.
