Creativity without limits
Hardly any tool is as versatile at the router. You can use it to rout grooves for wood joints, edge profiles or also special shaped parts. There are no limits to your creativity.
Here you can find out what you need to observe when working with a router:
Choose a router bit to suit the specific application. Set the speed of the router to suit the size of the router bit and the material of the workpiece.
If you are cutting a workpiece with the jigsaw first and then tidying it up with the router, remember to leave some “meat” for the work with the router.
Always use a parallel guide to help guide the router when routing straight edges.
You can also use the router to carve out curves, such as the rim of a round table top. Use a circle cutting guide to do so.
Fix the workpiece to your work surface using clamps or clamp it in your workbench. If necessary, use scrap wood as buffer blocks to protect the workpiece from pressure marks.
Set the desired routing depth on your router. You should rout grooves or slots in several passes. This reduces strain on the router bit.
