Hi GMman,

This appears to be a very practical router plate. It offers an open view of your routing.

Thanks for the post.

I must have the same magazine (I don’t remember what it was) because I saw that same thing. Looks like a good Idea.

I made a perspex jig for a straight edge to fit a router. The big advantages are that it is tough, easy to shape and transparent.

Grumpy I never heard of perspex it must be like plexiglass which is tough and clear it comes in 1/8 to 1/2 in thick , you can also cut it on your table saw , rout it and pass it on the jointner
