Plunge Base (Original): (for Trimmer and Compact Router Motors)
The Micro Fence Original Plunge Base is one of the foundation pieces of our system and is compatible with all existing Micro Fence products. Used with the Micro Fence Edge Guide or Circle Jig, you’ll have all the elements of a precision milling machine. Introduced in 2006, the Plunge Base was honored in the “Best New Tool” review of Popular Woodworking magazine. In 2011 it received the AWFS Sequoia Award for “Leadership in Product Innovation” in the Power Tools category.
A number of accessories are listed below and shown in the thumbnail pictures to the left that can expand the versatility of this tool (more information on each accessory is available on the Accessories pages).
If you’re interested in a more complete kit, our Package Deals page offers combinations that include our foundation pieces with the Plunge Base.
Please note: The bore in the motor carriage of the Plunge Base is for the Bosch Colt PR10/20 and requires no additional adapter. All other laminate trimmers have smaller diameters and will require either an adapter ring or cup. If your router needs an adapter (those marked with an asterisk* in the drop-down box below menu), it will need to be added. See Accessories (Short List) listed below. The dust hood kits are available separately or together in a kit.
See the specifications section below for details regarding motors with push button arbor lock systems.
