I have a Ridgid laminate trimmer. It has a small round base (like a mini
router). I find is somewhat difficult to balance the router on the edge of
the work and trim. I'd like to remove the clear base that came with it and
make a rectangular base that is easier to balance. The base needs to be low
friction and long wear. I'm assuming nylon is the best material to buy?
Good plan. i outfitted my handheld router with rectangular place about 3x8
and have not taken it off since.
It's made of Phenolic (sp?) resin... it was part of a 9x12 "sheet that i
intended to make a router table insert from.... but a decade later it was
I made the hole V shaped (open to the front) this allows me to do
flush-cutting of pins. I have even used this technique to trim down a blue
electrical box that was a little proud of the wallboard.
(yes I turned off the circuit breaker)
