I had a minor catastrophe today regarding quick-thrown together extra
I built the thing quick to finish a project where I needed to use 2
different router bits back to back to back. Unfortunately, I kept using it
after the project was finished...
I just threw together a frame of 2x4's with a melamine top. I cheated on
the joints cause I was being lazy, using 1/2" dowels at every joint with
titebond 2 (it was just a temporary tool.. ).
Well, it had been getting a little "loose" lately and today, I fired up the
router and "SNAP" - the entire frame disassembled - EVERY titebond 2/dowel
Broke a 1/2" roundover bit and now the router vibrates horribly. I glad it
was the cheapo no-name router I bought from the discount tool store.
Just thought I'd share.
