I have a 690 LRVSK kit I'm trying to sell which has the type 2 plunge and standard base. Not sure how you'd feel about having a second router. I actually have three 690s right now. The other two are n...

I thought about doing that, but these will be narrower legs with a taper.

I already have some 4/4 and 5/4 stock and a trip to the lumber yard involves taking a day off of work and hoping the weather is good.

Post: RE: Table Top Clamps Part Duex

I could, but that would make it too high. I could put smaller casters on it too. I'll just stick with these clamps and make a couple more to fit this use case. It's been a great bench for me.

Post: RE: Table Top Clamps Part Duex

Do you reach underneath to reattach? I saw a few styles of clamps that would fit through a 3/4 hole and secure from the bottom. My bench is cabinet style, so they wouldn't work for me.
