My new Freud router has an adjustment knob that smoothly adjusts the height when it is resting on a table (hand held position). When I hang it upside down in my router table, the same adjustment seems to cock the motor on the two guide shafts and it binds. Talking to Freud, they say additional torque on the knob is to be expected, but the pressure that I feel seems so extreme that I am afraid I will damage the guide bushings. I can see the motor cock on the base.
I have previously used only fixed routers in tables so I have no experience with this. Should I experience easier adjustments with a table mounted plunge router? Any suggestions?
