There was unfortunately a fire - somewhere. As a result an insurance
company sold a large block of water-damaged woodworking tools at salvage
prices (BTW everything's sold already). I was in the right place at the
right time and was able to acquire a Leigh D4 jig and the manual (a
little waterlogged though) for $41.00.
The down side is that any bits, collets or bushings there might have
been were separated so I don't have those. Also any adjustment tools or
addons are missing as well.
Other wreck discussions mention that some vendors sell 'kits' of bits
for the D4. What's my best option to get a useful, if minimal, set of
bits, bushings and collets? Any specific manufacturer or size bits you
I will be using a Bosch 1619 plunge router probably. I have both half
and quarter inch collets, but sounds like I should get an 8mm sleeve and
use 8mm bits. True?
Do I need some special bushings for the D4 or will standard PC-type
bushings work? I have some PC-style bushings and the adapter for the
Bosch. I'll have to unstick the manual pages to read through it and
check that out unless some of you have some quicker answers.
