router not square to rail
« on: Today at 12:54 PM »
 [eek] My of 2200 router, with guide attached and run on any of my rails does not cut square.
          It is over cutting at the bottom side of the timber.
          Anyone else had this problem? and found a good fix?

Do you have the leveling shoe on?

@leecab if part of you router base is still on the guide rail, you need to use a leveling foot.

Take a look at my post #9 in this thread for another option and the one I always use. Hang the guide off the back of the rail and all the router on the piece.
