  • Router Plunge base too stiff

    Hi all,

    I have a RIDGID combo kit router. It's fantastic, BTW, except for one thing. The springs on the plunge kit are so stiff that I have to actually put my body weight on it to push them down. I've tried the competitors' plunge bases at the store, and they are not nearly as stiff.

    Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know of a solution? I was thinking of cutting the springs a little bit. I don't want it really soft, but I want it to plunge instead of having two fixed bases.

    Thanks in advance.
