Tip of the Month.

Tip of the Month.

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

Blunt Warning!
Remember that the continual heating up and cooling down from using blunt cutters can eventually affect the temper of the spring steel in the collet and reduce its elasticity. If you find that your collet is starting to need excessive tightening before it will grip, it is time to replace it.
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

Importance of Springs!
Make sure you don´t lose the springs that are fitted under all the locking knobs on your router. These are an anti-vibration device, designed to stop the knobs unscrewing and falling out into the cutter. This can happen, especially if you are working without the fence and the knobs work loose.
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

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.
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.
