Here is an update. I received the Rocker router plate insert in the mail
Friday. It does indeed fit which means I can use the guide bushing that
is required for RTJ 400 jig. My router table appears to be totally flat.
It was made of 1/2" MDF and 3/4" MDF glued and screwed together with a
high pressure laminate attached to the top of the sandwich (all part of
Norm's design). There are leveling screws underneath the 4 corners of
the router plate which I tweaked just a bit to get the plate totally
planar with the sandwich/high pressure laminate. Bottom line: I am ready
to suck it up and buy the Leigh RTJ 400.
I will send one more update after I have made my purchase, read the
instructions at least twice, and verified that it all works for me.
Thanks to Leon and all in this group for the valuable help..
I don't know if I'll ever get one of those. My woodworking skills have a
way to go yet. But judging by what I have read here, I think I would be
inclined to devote a router to that function only. Once I got the bit
just to the right setup depth, I'd never move it.
Well bits wear out...... And then wood hardness comes into play...
The new Leigh RTJ 400 has a dept gauge for the bit and then
compensates for tight or loose fit by adjusting the eccentric guide
