Base for the 1400 Router
« on: April 28, 2017, 02:26 PM »
Boy do I wish Festool would make a totally round base for the 1400. I have a couple of Jigs that I would use the heck out of the Router if it did...

@mkn Pretty sure Pat Warner still makes a round sub base for the 1400.

Pat does make one because I have it.  Works & fits perfectly.

It's also easy to make your own out of phenolic (just use a circle jig or similar) and then use the existing base as a template for the holes.

Can't beat the quality of Pat's router accessories. And at $36 for the base with screws the price is right. If you have a means of centering the base that's all you need. But you can get it all if need be for a little more. I like his books too. Received one as a gift many years ago and refer to it now and again.

Pat replied to my email but it doesn't sound good. Might want to add him to your prayers....
Pat's reply: "Bad news, I'm ill & will not make any more 1400 plates unless I go into remission or these symptoms subside, PW"

Sorry to hear that, will keep him in my prayers and hopes he recovers.
