I use the 4.5" and 6.25" precisions all the time for vertical measuring. Very handy for that and generally you can stand them up on edge and they will stay.
Good advice, Seth!

We've been getting more requests for router mounting plates for the Festool routers lately. How many owners would really hang their Festool routers from a table? With regards to the 4 and 6" triangles, do you thing they should be thicker or thinner?

Richard,

While I'm thinking of one of your plates/lifts, I don't think I'd mount my Festool routers in them (unless someone can point to a compelling reason to). I like the ergonomics they have while in my hands, so I wouldn't want to dedicate that to something under the table when I can use a different router for that.

But since you are talking about triangles, how about a triangle with a removable base plate? (Sort of like your new hook stop) It could work like a speed square when attached and useful for squaring when not.

Best,
Steve

Steve,
I kind of agree on mounting a Festool to a table. The larger Carpenter Squares, 12" and 18" that we used to make had a removable foot. I don't think many people used it that way because it was tedious to remove. Maybe re-engineering those would be warranted.

Perhaps a sliding dovetail with a spring pin would make the foot easier to mount & dismount.

That could work. I need to think about he sliding dovetail approach. Not sure I could achieve a tight fit and have it be removable.

Hey Richard,

I wouldn't hang one of my Festool routers from a table either, but I do see where people over on the FOG ask about plates or lifts for the routers all the time. Should you decide to offer something for the Festool routers, you would have that market all to yourself -- well, at least at first.

Then I think we're on the same page. But then what do I know. I think I'll try a plate and see if there are any takers.

Only a fool ( or a festool fanatic ) would buy a festool plunge router to mount under the table..
