Frank, if you have jobs coming up that require the rail, I'd really look into the guide rail blocks for the 1400. The 1010 works ok, but the set for the 1400 has a (little understood, apparently) feature that allows some micro-adjusting. So, if you're not exactly where you wanted to be, you don't have to re-arrange the whole rail... you can just shift the router a little bit.
I'll try to take a picture when I have time. It's been a busy couple of weeks, but this technique is worth understanding... you'll be able to use it with the 1010 too, but it's really invaluable on teh 1400. As Jay mentioned, the 1400 is notoriously wobbly when you're working on the edge of a board.
You may be able to figure it out with the 1010... the principle is the same. Have the edge guide set up underneath the router, and run the rods all the way through, so they hang way out of the other side. Because the guide rail block is designed to sit on the same surface hte router is on, it will sit level with the base. Words can be wasted here... once you have everythign assembled, you should see pretty quickly what I'm talking about.
Anyway, til I put up some photos...
