Just looks long b/c I didn’t Cut the miter track dado yet. Same  distance in front of the bit as  a Rockler router table. But I don’t have to worry about that stupid miter track cuz I  gotta a toss the thing!

That side never gets used anyway. Your fence should cover it up. If it were mine I would leave it to remind myself to check all measurements and sizes before cutting anything....

I'd be reaching for the Bondo. As Jesse said, the fence will cover it anyway.

I had a woodpecker router plate and  it’s like inch and three-quarter longer than  rockler one. I made a jig for the old router saw  wing -and use that  on this new wing. Too bad plates are  standardized ......

Good you can laugh at the mistake Dane and even better share it here.:P

Glad you joined us...spreads the misery around so it's not my turn as often.:lol:

Most folks wouldn't share their mistakes with others. Says a lot about your character.

I get excited when I can share something other than my "duh" moments.
