Freud FT1700VCE Problems
I have had a Freud FT1700VCE mounted in my router table for just under two years. It received low to moderate use, building furniture. Initially, I noticed that there was more play in the spindle when I adjusted the bit height - it would tend to 'wobble' back and forth as the height changed. Over time, the adjustment got harder and harder, and finally failed completely a few days ago. I took it apart and found scoring on the housing body where the support body clamps together. Ater cleaning and lubricating the housing, it now moves again, but the adjustment no longer works correctly. I have contacted Freud warranty and it sounds like they will take care of the repair, so stay tuned.
