1.
Make sure that lower left fence lines up with the
lower right fence. (The identifying grooves on the
lower left side fence will face toward the back of
the upper fence, as shown in Figure 44.)
If they do not, loosen the fence clamping knobs
on the left side and remove the lower left fence
from the upper fence. Re-assemble it to the
upper fence so that the identifying grooves face
toward the back of the upper fence, as shown.
2.
Install the desired bit in the router.
The bit must be of the point-cutting or
end-cutting type. Do NOT use any other
type of bit.
3.
Position both lower fences from SIDE-TO-SIDE
so that they clear the bit by 1/4".
4.
Tighten the four clamping knobs holding the
fences in place.
5.
Adjust the fence inward or outward to obtain the
proper location-of-cut, as shown in Figure 45.
6.
Tighten the fence clamping knobs.
7.
Adjust the height of the bit to obtain the desired
height-of-cut. (Adjustment is made with the
router.) See Figure 45.

If you are using the feather boards, adjust them
as described in the section, ROUTING USING
THE FEATHER BOARDS.
