Router Milling Machine

The dimensions for the upper flange bearing hole on the left side should be listed as 14" from the bottom, not 5" from the top. Technically, there is no difference in the end result, but this well help avoid any confusion as to the location of the hole in the right side. Because the right side isn’t as tall, if you measure the hole location using the 5" measurement from the top, the holes will not align.

The Reid Supply part number for the 5/16"-18 Knobs should be DK-55, not DK-138 as originally printed. The DK-138 knobs are too large in diameter and may interfere with each other or the tailstock. Both knobs have the same thread size but the overall knob size differs.

The sources did not mention which paint was used on the milling machine base. It was Benjamin Moore's Classic Color Collection – No. 546 Courtyard Green.

Two corrections: (1) The project requires three 10-Tooth Gears (X), not only one as originally printed. (2) The Main Gear (S) and the 40-Tooth Gears (AA) are shown with a diameter of 11 7/8" but both should have an 11 13/16" diameter.
Page 28: Figures 5 and 6
Both figures 5 and 6 (pages 28 and 29) show the Main Gear (S) and the 40-Tooth Gears (AA) with a diameter of 11 7/8"; both should have an 11 13/16" diameter.

The project requires 2 Traveler Blocks (LL), not only one as originally printed.

CLARIFICATION: The sizes of knobs and flange bolts are not called out anywhere in the artwork. The 1/4"-20 x 2-1/2" Flange Bolts and 1/4"-20 knobs shown in the Materials List are used for the adjustable leg assemblies. The 5/16"-18 x 3" Flange Bolts are used for the hold-downs on the table; however, these flange bolts and the knobs shown in the photos and artwork come with the hold-downs sold by Rockler.
