I have the original PRL and the router is mounted via the body clamp to threaded rods. Given this arrangement, the only way I can see experiencing the 1/16” drop would be either the router bit slipping, the router body slipping in the PRL clamp, or something allowing the router armature to shift in the router body.

Seeing that you mentioned the bit is secure and that the armature shifting is very unlikely, I’d suspect that there is some slippage in the way the PRL clamps to your router body?

I talked to customer support for the second time and he helped me troubleshoot the issue. The culprit is the locking nut on the lifting carriage. He said that it is most likely my issue and he will be sending me out the part.

Splintergroup, I have checked my router clamp and it is secure. Thanks for the reply.

My JessEm has a split nut to allow retightening due to wear to eliminate backlash. That could have come loose or simply need to be retightened. Since they’re sending a new one, it sounds like you’re all set.
