    A few models require the plastic sole plate to be removed from the router: to install a guide bush, to mount a plate to accept bushes, or to set the bush in a moulded socket in the base. The two Tritons are of this type, as are the Chinese-made SIP and JCB models. It seems that the base has to be removed. I inclued a pic .

    Hi Joel. Thanks again but think it is a bit too much for me so have decided to return the SIP and buy a macallister as it is the same price but already has the 30mm bush. Regards. Allison

Look up 30mm router guide bushings on the web. Do a search. You'll find several sites that carry a 30 mm bushing.

Testimonial: "Hi Joel. Thanks for the reply but I have already done this and found lots of them but also lots of reviews from other users saying they can't find any that will actually fit the SIP"

SOURCE: can i use 30mm guide bush to cut worktop with a

Yes you can. You probably would want to do some test cuts in the wood that you are using.
If your worktop is hardwood then each pass will have to be maximum 1/8". It will take many passes depending on the thickness of the worktop. This is assuming that a carbide bit is being used. The smaller the diameter of the bit the less resistance. Also using a 1/4" shank on the bit and the HP of the router determines how fast the router will cut.

SOURCE: Got a worx router,model wx15rt cannot find a 30mm guide bush

If you can't fabricate your own. Get a dedicated or universal sub base for the WX 15RT Router, this allows attachment of trend and other bush guides

Might be a firewall setting in your router. See if you can change the SIP ALG setting. If it is off, you need to turn it on.

Here is a site that will help you identify the SIP ALG in your router:

Freud ft2000 switch

You can find a part diagram and parts list on-line. Just enter the model #. The variable speed control module is no longer available. You can bypass the control, and connect the router directly. You will no longer be able to control the speed, or turn off the router. I used a variable 15A control box instead. It will function the same way.
You may want to just replace the router with a new up-to date router, I just purchased a 2 1/2HP Skil router kit tah has a 1/2 chuck, and both a plunger base a flat base, for $100 at a big box store.

Why do I have one way sip audio on my belkinF5D7234 router

That router has compatibility issues with some VOIP modems which I am guessing you are attempting to use and that result in one-way SIP.
You may need to check if the router is compatible with your modem

When the router is at slower speeds, I can stop the motor when pushing wood through a bit. when I back off, the motor starts up again. Is this normal or do I have a problem with the router.

Is it a variable speed? Routers only cut at high speed, wood anyway, if it is variable speed, They must think you will be cutting something soft, I don't know, But they are like a dentist's drill, when they slow down, they don't cut, Keep that thing on high and make some dust, it should not bog down, If it does, check the brushes, if it still does, it has lost it's power and is basically shot. get a new one. Hope this helps.

Variable speed switch FERM ROUTER

the variable switch had 5 connection points on it, i bridged the connection on the 2 outer points with insulated wire,pretty much to see what would happen, this worked,
as this will be a router fitted to a table i will at some point remove the wire and
attach a 5way rotary switch, used for guitar electrics and mount it
into a electrical switch casing,
