  • Completed 1st project..

    I completed my first project with me Rigid TS3650 Table Saw. I think the saw is A1.

    My first project was a router table\cabinet. The router plate is about 1/16" or 1\32" low compared to the table. Is there a way to fix this.

    TKS. Reboot

    First, how about some pics?
    Only 1/16"? Maybe some thick tape should level it.
    I've used tables where the plate was not flush, they worked fine. But you might as well make it perfect.

        Maybe you could install set screws in the four corners similiar to the setup on your saws throat plate.
        I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

          My first router table's plate was about 1/32 too low. I just put slivers of wood from my handplanes to get it just right. But masking tape or aluminum foil should work just the same.

            I had to shim the T track on my table and used masking tape........the blue tape is easier to remove if you ever need to. Did you make your own plate? The reason I ask is that all the commercial tables have levelling screws.

              Yes I made it out of 1/4 inch plexie glass.
