A 2-horsepower motor is good for most people. A larger one is needed for professional work; while an even smaller motor is good for detail work.

I need the plastic plate for a Rockwell 4601 router. The part that rides on the wood. 703-635-5602

the original sub base for this tool is obsolete no replacement. My suggestion is to buy another MFR sub base the same size, (most are they used this plate on B&D, Porter Cable and others) and if the holes don't line up exactly you would need to drill and counter sink them. With a little effort on your part you can get this router running again. I checked 4 sites for this part and came up with the same on all about the obs no replacement. Let me know if you need more assistance. Thanks

Having difficulty seting bit depth

I'm not familiar with that brand, but no, normally you need only loosen the lock so the router can move up and down, and either twist it or plunge it into the correct position, lock it, check the depth, repeat.
If it's a plunge router you'll have a depth stop rod that you can use in conjunction with the stop nuts to dial in the correct height of the bit. If it's a conventional router you just have to twist it into the correct height and lock it in place without moving it.
If your router table is fairly light and portable, sometimes its easier to turn the whole thing upside down on a pair of sawhorses to adjust, then flip it back over. Otherwise, you just have to crouch down under there, aim a work light so you can see what you're doing, and adjust away.
Make sure you unplug it first!
Also be aware that you might need a fence for your work to ride against, that you may need to make your cut in successive passes rather than trying to hog off too much at once, and that even routers can grab the work and kick it, so be cautious and feed from right to left as you face the bit, (with the work closest to you).

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
