  3. The ability of the lift to raise the collet high enough to reach with regular wrenches is a limitation of the router, not the lift. If the collet is too stubby, with the motor housing nearly touching the underside of the plate the collet will still not be adequately exposed. Bent wrenches are a solution to this. Freud routers had very long arbor/collet setups but these are no longer made. My Milwaukee 5625, like the PC 7518, has a bit of a stubby arbor/collet/nut setup. Still very reachable on the Woodpecker PRL (v1) model which was designed for the 5625. Your router

  4. Most of my collection is in boxes right now. I am in the process of remodeling my "man cave". These are a few of my rarer pieces. Sears "Ted Williams" lantern made by Coleman. Near mint condition. Coleman Ker-o-lite. Colman's only wick kerosene lamp. (reproduction shade) 2018 Coleman "Seasons Lantern" and matching cooler. Since 2005 Coleman has made the The Seasons Lanterns for the Japanese collector market and not sold them in the US. For some reason in late 2017 they sold (we believe) around 800 on the Coleman website. I found the cooler at a Coleman outlet

  5. I forget where I first heard that term . . . Here's some 1-3/4 and 2-1/4 HP Milwaukees with a 3-1/2 HP (as they call them) in the lift.

  6. Had some difficulty making the juice groove on a round cutting board, until I came up with fixture shown in thumbnail, which uses a router, and two ball bearings to guide the cutting board. Arrow on fixture shows direction to rotate the cutting board so that spinning router bit does not push it away from the ball bearings.

  7. Whenever my wife and I finish a project and have some "extra" parts left over that will eventually be needed due to wear or replacement parts such as a faucet filter that will need replacement in time, etc, we say to each other, "Let's be sure to put these in a safe, obvious place that we'll be sure to remember when we need them." We've never been able to find any of those things. Ever again. I think they go into the alternate universe. Like my memory. Rich
