Hi Bob

The workpiece is held to the Melamine board with a screw and boes not penetrate into the router table itself.

You are correct that the Melamine board is thick (3/4”) but the reason that the bit did not reach all the way through the workpiece was my fault…I left the depth stop locked (from previous job)....I used long bit (2”) that could easily go all the way up but…well, we all have our mistakes….

I’m planning to use 8mm (5/16”) so I shall get extra 3/8” depth.

I don’t have much of a need to cut circles but I think that with trammel I shall need also a backing board under the workpiece (held firmly to the workbench) and a carpet tape to hold the workpiece to the backer board…in my opinion, my set-up it much simpler but, it’s just me…
