Tip of the Month.

Tip of the Month.

HSS Cutters for Fine Work
HSS router cutters are most suitable for fine and detailed work that requires a very clean and precise finish straight from the cutter. Dovetailing in soft woods and panel raising being good examples.
More

Clamp Guide Offset
If you do a lot of work with a particular router/bit combination, machine up a piece of thin MDF or plastic to be exactly the same width as the distance between the edge of the router and the cutter and use this to position the fence clamping line.
More

Pin Guide Care
Pin guides have the advantage that they can be used to profile intricate shapes as the pin is so small, but they do generate a lot of frictional heat and may mark or even burn the timber if they are not used with care.
More

Stop Router Tipping
If you are struggling with the router tipping and a particular cut is critical, clamp a long batten alongside the work to support the router beyond the length of the cut edge. This is a particularly useful tip if you are trying to work on the edge of a very narrow workpiece.
More

Widening a Groove
If you need to widen a groove and are just using a single fence, always make the second cut by moving the cutter away from the edge of the work, i.e. to the left, and then feed the router against the rotation of the cutter. Now any deflection of the cutter will be into the pre-cut waste area rather than into the edge and face of the work.

Question of the Month.

Question of the Month.

Q: Can the Trend hinge jig be used with the T4, T5, T9, T10 & T11?

A: In theory all can be used, although the T4 & T5 are more suitable as they are lighter to hold when machining the recesses on the door frame.
More

Q: What are the differences between T10 & T11 Routers?

A: The T10 is designed for the tradesman in a workshop or on site, whereas the T11 is more suitable for router table set-up as the fine height adjuster can be operated from above the table top. The T11 has larger aperture for the very large diameter cutters and you can also purchase a quick release kit for easy removal of the T11 from our PRT table.
More

Q: Which router replaces the OF97E?

A: The Dewalt replacement is DW621K
More

Q: What are the guide rod centres on the Elu MOF96(E) and MOF177(E)?

A: (1) Elu MOF96(E) has 84mm centres with 8mm diameter rods (2) Elu MOF177(E) has 100mm centres with 10mm diameter rods.
More

Q: Can I use Trend guide bushes on my B&Q 1250R router?

A: Unfortunatly not, you will need to purchase a sub base which Trend´s Technicians will then drill to suit. The part number is GB/5/S. This part comes complete with line up pins & screws allowing exact concentricity of the guide bush.
