The new Trend Workshop Router Pod is the simple but effective wood routing accessory designed to keep your router in an upright position for fast, easy access in any routing application.
While good working practice states that the router plunge should be released to lift the cutter safely within the router base whenever possible, there is an age-old problem of placing a router safely when a guide bush is fitted.
The projection of the guidebush makes the router unstable when trying to stand it upright, resulting in the router being laid on its side or stood inverted.
This can be unsafe, especially if the cutter needs to remain projecting through the guidebush such as in dovetail or other jig work, and where the Trend Router Pod offers maximum safety, with fast, easy access to the router at all times.
Made from lightweight durable impact resistant plastic, the 40mm high horseshoe design has 60mm wide access slot for safe, easy parking or router pick up, minimising any chance of cutter contact., allowing the router to slide or drop into the opening between each cut, or to store it safely, ready for the next time.
Trend Workshop Router Pods can be used with any router, and are especially useful for fixed base models where there is no plunge facility to retract the cutter. Each Workshop Router Pod also has four non-slip rubber feet with corresponding recesses on the top surface allowing Pods to be stacked if required for longer cutter projection.
The Router Pod is priced at £9.95 including VAT and is available from all Trend Routing Centres and Trend Stockists around the UK. Please visit www.trend–uk.com for further details.
