    Super stable setup. Super easy top adjust for big mortises. I use hand screw clamps as bump stops. I supercharged my set up by having Fictiv make me a 10mm aluminum plate to replace the standrd plastic one. Worth every penny!

    One great tool for the router ! I recommend to anyone

    Good option for mortising large posts.
    I bought the optional mortise, hinge, lock & flute jig system for the CRB7 router base for mortising large (4×4) lumber. The unit worked well, once I figured out how balance this rig on the post. It is very side heavy with the mortise jig attached and will tilt unless supported on the bridge side. They provide an anti-tilt leg to help but you have to work on a flat surface. I needed to balance the bridge plate on a parallel 4×4 – voila! My DeWalt 618 router plunge base is difficult to find center lines, as well as starting and stopping points for cuts, but the reference marks on the mortise jig jaws make that a tad easier once you determine the offsets. I have tried making homemade jigs but they just don’t have the accuracy I’m looking for. The tool is well engineered although the micro adjusters are a little sloppy. The system is a tad bit expensive, but should pay off if I bought the CRB7 router base in combo with the optional mortise, hinge, lock & flute jig system for mortising large (4×4) lumber.

    Like it, worked great. Used it to make a slot in a drawer front to attache a drawer pull (hand made)

    Terry Clingan – Rockler

    I have used this for lots. making circles and trimming edge banding is a breeze.
    The best feature is a sweet micro adjust.

    Very convenient – If you do a lot of Mortesing this is the perfect tool

    The ultimate in Versatility – Increases the versatilty when cutting mortise slots for loose tenons. Allows you to percisely cut mortise slots vs the centering pins which come with the basic system. As a bonus the fixed guide can be used to replace the optional straight edge sold by M Power as an accessory.

    Great addition to the crb7 line – Easy to install, performed as advertised, I would definitely recommend this product

    Great tool – This attachment has been a game changer for me. I use to have to make custom jigs for each piece of work. This attachment allows me to make perfect mortises without having to make a jig or use a router table.
