I was in your shoes a few years ago, waffling between the router and spindle. The thought of listening to a screaming router for hours on end didn’t sit well, but spending the $$ on a spindle didn’t...

Pat, this is what it should look like. The assist rod should screw directly into lower swivel piece with a locking nut. It looks like you have some extra hardware.
