If you’ve ever wished for a pair of handles on the fixed base of your compact router, or if you’ve wanted a larger footprint for it, Rockler has the solution in its new Compact Router Sub-Base with Handles. The 6-in.-dia. baseplate is made of ¼-in.-thick acrylic, and it’s drilled with the screw mounting patterns for Bosch, DeWALT and Porter-Cable compact routers. Ball handles offer a wider grip of the machine, for improved handling and control.
Rockler equips the sub-base with a stepped center cutout that will accept standard Porter-Cable style guide bushings, for template routing and other joinery tasks.
This new Compact Router Sub-Base is the second sub-base variation Rockler has brought to market of late for this router category. Another option is the Compact Router Mortise Centering Base (item 57523; $19.99).
You can buy Rockler’s Compact Router Sub-Base with Handles (item 59811) for $29.99 at Rockler.com, Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, or through Rockler’s printed catalog.
