  • Battery Backup and fence add-ons?

    I recently caught my foot on the power cable yet again and unplugged the Readyt2Rout AGAIN... and I decided to do something about it. I bought an inexpensive battery backup unit for the electronics part of the R2R. This solved a couple of problems. The unit seems more stable than it did before - sometimes it would randomly restart. Not much of a problem anymore. Sometimes I would have trouble trying to use the zero plate - it wouldn't give me the option of accepting the results. That seems to have gone away as well now. Maybe cleaning up the power helped.

    I also have had difficulty attaching things to the fence - like stops, for example, if you want to do a stopped dado or cove and only want it to go so far - what are others using for stops? I did attach some phenolic-covered plywood to act as a form-fitting support while the material was being pushed through. Anyone else do that?
