Having sifted through all the replys I have had from members with my delemma I finally found what I was looking for, I started off with Mica then went on to Fish paper then low and behold it was nether it turns out to be something I had been useing for most of my working life now costs an arm and a leg but clever so I bought 2,

You are never to old to learn something new,

Take care,

Sorry Lads, I like a little bit of intrigue, You get the idea from my first post what I was after, I was told it was Mica then Fish paper and then Phenolic Laminate, Trend, Rutlands no joy in all 3, I still had the manual for said router after 34 years which had the part number got on the internet firm called Power Tool Spares there it was sub base so I ordered 2 for £30.11 they turned up this week, the old one was 1m thick the new one is 2m thick you stick it on the honeycone base with Evo-Stick job done it is a laminate that I am sure it is what we used in the 60s as a balancer formica made this lam without the pattern to stick on the under side of say a worktop to stop it bowing providing the grain runs the same way on both laminates you are sticking we had loads of it, you live and learn,

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

Take care,
