Rockler Universal Router Base with Whirlwind Dust Port

This versatile router baseplate extends well over the flat face of your workpiece, providing far better stability when edge profiling. In addition, this package includes the Whirlwind Dust Port, which surrounds the router bit for exceptional dust collection! The baseplate includes a fence/edge guide that can be used to guide bits without bearings along the edge of your workpiece—ideal for dados, grooves, fluting and inlays. The fence is reversible: one edge is straight, while the other is a contoured two-point guide that's useful for following inside and outside curves. Finally, the baseplate accepts our selection of Standard (4'' O.D.) Rockler Router Plate Insert Rings, which add a great deal of versatility to your router. A standard guide bushing insert is included, while a variety of other inserts are available separately.

Features:

  • Adds stability, edge-routing precision and the ability to change insert rings
  • Edge guide is reversible for straight workpieces and curved workpieces
  • Two separate fence attachment points allow you to rout from 0'' to 5'' from the edge
  • Accepts our selection of Standard (4'' O.D.) Rockler Router Plate Insert Rings
  • Made from 3/8'' thick clear acrylic for excellent visibility, with a durable 1/2'' thick edge guide
  • Pre-drilled to fit many popular routers and can be drilled to fit others
  • Includes standard 1-3/16'' guide bushing insert and screws to attach router

Baseplate is pre-drilled for the following routers:

  • Bosch 1617 (fixed base only)
  • Bosch 1618 series
  • Bosch 1619
  • Bosch 1619 EVS
  • Dewalt DW625

Package includes the Whirlwind Dust Port for exceptional dust collection, both above and below the bit!

Designed as an accessory to Rockler's Universal Router Base, this innovative two-piece system contains dust both above and below the bit for mess-free edge routing. The unique top attachment surrounds the router bit from above, creating a visible whirlwind effect that forces dust down into the larger lower component. The top piece attaches without tools to the included baseplate insert.

Features:

  • Top component locks in place on the table insert with a simple counter-clockwise turn
  • For added versatility, the lower attachment can mount in a number of directions
  • Dust port fits a standard 2-1/2'' dust hose

"Universal" router base and dust port
The "universal" router base did not have mounting holes to fit any of my four routers, so it's not so universal as you would expect. But I drilled my own holes and it worked fine. The dust port is the real winner here as it captured most of the dust from my edge cuts -- typically rabbet cuts -- on Melamine and plywood.

not what I expected.
Absolutely no instructions on assembly or use with any of the parts . Plus not suited for my Craftsman router plunge or fixed base routers.

Save some of the mess for which a router is known. Mostly though, I wanted the base extension for stability.
