Tip of the Month.

Tip of the Month.

No Bottom Cut
Router cutters without any bottom cut facility can only be fed into the work from the side or edge, they will just burn if you try and plunge them into the surface.
More

Gripping Router Mats
In many situations, the use of a special router mat will provide all the support you need. This has a specially designed rubbery consistency that resists slipping. Just lay it on the bench, drop on your work and away you go. Being so simple and effective, a router mat is a great choice for holding small components, but it maybe less effective on bigger pieces.
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.
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

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.
