I bought a very nice micrometer on Ebay for about $25.

As for excuses to buy a new router, have you tried this one:

"My old router is making a funny noise and I think it may be dangerous to use"

2. 'Honey, this little router doesn't fit in my router table. I need one of these 3 1/2 hp ones that are made for it.'
3. 'How do you expect me to make all those nice projects for you with this old thing? I need this new one with the high enery fusion conigley pin.'
4. 'Honey, Bob's wife let him have four routers. Don't you love me as much as she loves him?

Let me know if any of these work. Post any pics of black eyes, cast iron skillet dents in your head, etc. LOL

#1 she was standing beside me when I bought the collet chucks. She was also beside me when I bought the MV12 3hp plunge router. She was also beside me when I bought the last Makita 3601B router at the garage sale down the street for $12.50. That's now the going price for a top-end router.

Besides we use three sizes of router bases and switch them around from machine to machine.#2 She's used the router table when we built the deck several years ago. She's also very familiar with the OakPark system that _we_ use. We currently have three routers, but one is on it's last legs - the only 1/4" we've got.

#3 My wife speaks two languages fluently, certainly better than I do. I'm afraid that "high enery fusion conigley pin." spells B--- S--- in any language.

#4 We know no one (except Norm Abrahams on the New Yankee workshop or Bob Rosenthal on Router Workshop) that has four routers. The worst part of it is that she's as familiar with the sparse inventory of all of our friends as I am.

No, I'm just going to have to figure this one out myself.

But I'm still going to try the dedicated router trick :)
