I asked Marc Sommerfeld if drilling and tapping the insert plate for their 999.501.19
Industrio phenolic top to accept my Bosch 1617 router base could be done by them as
Woodhaven offers. Their answer, by Marilyn, was: "Marc is only one, and doesn't have
a lot of woodworking people working for him. If he started this, it would be endless
Now I am in a real quandary. I want Sommerfeld's phenolic top, and not the Woodhaven
top, but I am anxious of doing the drilling and tapping myself. That assumption is
based upon my recent failure in that aspect. I assume Woodhaven's phenolic insert
plate would not fit properly, if at all, into the opening in the Sommerfeld top.
I could just take the insert and router to my local machine shop and have them do the
drilling and tapping of the insert plate.
Now for my questions: Do any of you have the Sommerfeld Industrio system and how do
you like it? If so, how did you get it to accept your router?
