    Although there is a

    Router/Spindle Mount


    for sale in the parts store the base and the diameter are too large for my machine. I'm using a 20 X 60mm plate for the Z drive and a Makita with a 65mm diameter body. There are several of these for sale on eBay, but all in China. Not my favorite place to purchase things these days.

    Are there any of these mounts in the UK or Europe. I'll have to let Ooznest know that this is one item they should add to their inventory, as I'm sure I'm not the only person with this problem.

    My OX gets like my boat, always needing something else to keep it afloat.

    Any one have any ideas.

    Thanks a lot.

    Well it seems I overlooked one of Marks smaller videos. The one on 'Quick & Dirty Router Mount' or though I'm not sure I'd use plastic ties to hold my router in place. So I bought a couple of

    'Jubilee High Torque Stainless Steel 304 Hose Clip (80mm - 100mm Hose Diameter)'

    here in the UK which should work out well for my Makita's 65mm diameter body.

    They are 16mm wide which makes drilling a couple of holes to go underneath the 2 90 Degree Cast Corner brackets on the Z plate a bit easier to place without weakening the clip too much.

    Then, when everything is up and running I'll cut a couple of router clamps out of 18mm birch ply to replace the Jubilee clips.

    My apologies for wasting board space with a question that I answered myself.

    But it still may be of interest to someone else on the forum. If anyone wants the web address of where the Jubilee clips came from, then please email me privately.

    Thanks a lot.

    Michael.

    What I advice customers to do is to cut out an adapter that goes into the 71mm mount:

    Or just use 3 pieces of 3mm thick material and put those pieces at 120º, glue or use double-sided tape or so to keep them in place.
