You might be better off replacing the plastic base with a piece of 1/4" clear lexan (plexiglas). you'll be able to see through that.
Otherwise, you can make a simple jig that stops the trimmer at both ends (at the length of cut for the hinges) and controls the depth of cut by registering against the edge of the door. Make the jig base itself of 1/4' MDF or some such and longer than you think you'll need it to be so you have a way to clamp it or pin it down to the door.
If that sounds too complicated, try measuring the distance from the edge of the bit to the edge of the trimmer, in both directions, and marking the corresponding length away from the hinge position with a piece of blue masking tape or something, so you'll have an easily visible reference line when routing. You can mark it a little short and clean up the end of the cut with a sharp chisel.
Finally, run a test on a piece of scrap before you try to fit the hinge to your finished work.

Need a diagram of fuel gas lines on a 131 poulan

Lots of research has shown a lack of diagrams on fuel line routing. Your carburetor has the purge/primer bulb on top of it. Just to help you understand how it works....the bulb uses a vacuum effect to pull fuel from the tank directly into the carburetor and the check valves in the plate under the bulb (known as the primer base assembly) push any air and old fuel inside the carb back into the fuel tank. On your model, the line inside the tank with the fuel filter on it will come out and go to the carburetor body BELOW the base assembly. The other line coming out of the tank (fuel return line) will go TO the nipple on the base assembly. The lines should be nice and soft and so should the bulb. They all have to be replaced periodically as alcohol, heat and age deteriorate them. Please post back if needed.

I need a base plate for a Freud FT1702VCEK to make a router table will a FT1700 work.

I don't think I understand, because all routers come with a base plate, and to make a router table, you would want to remove the base plate from the router, and use the holes underneath that.

But there was a whole lot of discussion about the very same subject on a router forum, so maybe you will find the answer you need there?

Woodhaven sells all kinds of router accessories, or you can call freud, or you can make them yourself. We always made our own, to fit the job. It is nice to have the original for a template though.

How to disconnect the water and electrical, and remove the left door of a side by side G E

This should not be very difficult. Unplug refrigerator. Remember that any water remaining in water tank inside the fresh food section will once the line is disconnected at lower left hand hinge area will pour out by gravity once the snap connection is disconnected. Allow the water to flow into a pan until empty. Then unsnap the electrical pin connectors at bottom and top hinge under the cover if present. You may also need to remove the kick plate at base of the refrigerator to be able to reach some of these connections. Most water connections you will need to push the outer ring in to loosen the line. Use care as not to damage the water lines then remove hinge screws being careful to remember location and position of screws washers and plastic hinge covers. If you need more answers please let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Door will not latch

There are a few ways you can fix this problem by trouble shooting a few things.....#1 If there is room inside the door opening, and your door still closes you can "SHIM" one of the hinges out. Top or bottom can be shimmed depending on where the latch for the door is hitting the Strike Plate. Close the door and watch where the latch is closing on the frame. If it is hitting above the Strike Plate then you can shim the Upper hinge, Shim bottom hinge if latch is hitting below Stike Plate. You can use anything Thin( as Thick as the hinge plate or thinner) a wooden shim, a piece of plastic, something to bring the honge out a bit. Unscrew the needed hinge from the wall and insert "SHIM" between hinge and wall and retighten screws. This may adjusting enough so the door will latch. You may also use this method sort of in reverse. Instead of shimming the hinge, you may be able to recess in deeper into the frame or the door, creating the same affect. You will need to remove the door and use a wood chisel to sink the hinge(s) deeper. #2 If that does not work you may have to relocate the strike plate up or down, creating a new area for the latch. Follow the same proceedure as solution #1 to see where the latch is hitting the strike plate. Remove and reposition the strike plate so the latch hits in the center of the hole in the strike plate. Mark the strike plate where the new postion needs to be and use a wood chisel to recess the strike plate in its new position. Than you can patch the old area with wood putty. I think #2 is the easiest, depending on how your wood work on the door framing is......I have used these tricks before, and I hope they can help you out......Joe

How can i take the bottom stand of my monitor before i mount it t

Generally speaking, LCD monitors have a plastic cover that snaps onto the back side which covers the hinge and screws holding the base plate 'post' to the monitor. Remove the cover, and remove the screws. The post that engages the base plate will come off with the hinge intact.
