I made this router base for my Kress 1050-1 router.
It normally sits in my CNC machine, but it is just too
nice not to use for anything else.
It's a very accuate and powerful machine that fits in
one hand, so with this base you can convert it to
a trim/palm router.
The height is adjustable with 3 screws.
All screws in this desing are 10mm M5 machine screw and use
M5 inserts (search ebay for "M5 Steel Threaded Flat Insert")
There a two bottom half designs, one is completely round with
a diameter of 10cm, the other has an indent of 1cm (so distance
flat side to center is 4 cm) and has the option to screw on a
I included an accessory block on which you can easily screw or
glue a flat piece of 6mm thick plywood to use as a circle jig.
The base clamps onto the router with a collarclamp. the neck of the Kress
has a diameter of 43mm, so you can use it on other routers if the diameter
is the same.
