Default UEG with Router for Dado's

Has anybody thought about using the UEG with a router for making dado cuts? I would think it would be much easier than trying to square up a track.

Just use a spare saw base and attach a router to it.

Dik will tell you...
better use an edge guide from your router.
you need a spacer to be able to rout at the edge.

You just need a second fence, notched for the bit to be able to do a rabbet or an edge treatment. Of course you have to take the handle bar off too. The longer fence is better than the router's standard edge guide.

I made one that works well. Now I have to adapt it to the UEG. I have all the parts on hand, just need the time.

Funny I just ordered another UEG with this purpose in mind. Well that & I wanted another saw base with the sale price I got all the UEG Extrusions for 10 bucks can't beat that.

I made one router setup using plastic and a fence like Dik described. The idea was to be able to easily make different width rabbets. It works great for that. I'm waiting for more details from Dino.

Seems like this thread kind of died. What is the current opinion? I have the UEG but want to use it with my router.
