In building this adaptation of the Stumpy Nubs HRT, I decided to use T-Track for sliding the router plate which in my mind would allow for ease in leveling the router plate by shimming or sanding (in my case a heavy magazine cover shim under one T-Track).

I had never used T-Track and this seemed like a good place to start so I purchased T-Track, hex headed bolts w/knobs and went to work only to find that the hex heads wouldn’t work smoothly in this application. I salvaged the plan by using the 3” eye-bolts which had proven too short for the sliding table hold downs and some counter-top connector T-Nuts left over from kitchen remodeling.

Rather than purchasing another router base (or using the Turnlock approach since my router has a D handle) I borrowed a mounting technique for the router motor from The Ultimate Router Table by John White, FW No. 153.
