Jim – I am still working on the modified router like the one shown in that video.
I had white porcelain drawer knobs on it but after a few minutes they became slippery
and I didn’t like the feel of them.
I got some rubber stoppers, epoxied a wood dowel in them to make a snug fit
and afixed them to the plexi base. much, much better to control !!!!!!!!!!
this afternoon, I will make a vertical sign to demonstrate how it works. (hopefully).
my hand routering is a little rusty now – but I think I can pull it off with this new router.

before – with the porcelain knobs:

after – with the rubber stopper handles
