Better Baseplate

Better Baseplate

 

    

Yes, the world does need a better router baseplate. How about one that's a terrific guide for cutting dados, rabbets, grooves, mortises and circles? The Router Wizard Pro from Eagle Jigs is just the ticket. It's composed of two interlocking plates: an upper plate, which fastens to your router in place of its standard baseplate, and a lower plate, which slides inside the upper plate. The lower plate's position is adjustable side-to-side using a rack-and-pinion mechanism. The Router Wizard Pro delivers accuracy when you need it the most. Take cutting shelf dados, for example. Here, a little bit of wander in the cut can really ruin your day. This baseplate solves that problem by using a white nylon edge guide whose lip fits precisely into the groove of a straightedge clamping guide. (A clamping guide is not provided with the Router Wizard Pro.) Three different edge guides are available to fit various clamping guides. Fasten the edge guide to the Router Wizard Pro, place it in the clamping guide's groove, and you're all set to dial in the distance from the dado to the fence using the knob connected to the rack and pinion mechanism.

Tighten two locking knobs and you're ready to go. For making stopped grooves or mortises, you adjust two stops on the lower plate. They butt against a pin located on the upper plate. For making circles, you attach one or more extension plates to the main baseplate, install a pin or screw into the extension to make a pivot point, and dial in an exact distance using the adjustment knob, as above. This is just a small taste of what the Router Wizard Pro can do. For videos showing more applications, visit the website below.
