Routabout

Routabout
  A Hole Lot Quicker
The Router is probably the most versatile of all the tools at the BuilderÕs disposal. However, the machine is normally used for producing mouldings or forming grooves, but with some time saving accessories can be used for so much more.
This article will highlight how to save time and money using a router.
Gaining access to pipes and cables beneath chipboard floors can mean hours of inconvenience and wasted materials. However, the Trend Routabout hole cutter jig used with a router offers a unique solution found on site, where access is required to pipes and electrical work beneath a chipboard or wooden floor. This system can be used on either 18mm or 22mm flooring.

Routabout
  Setting-up
The diameter of the finished access hole will be 250mm. Carefully mark the centre point of the circle, and screw the Routabout jig to the floor using a single No. 8 particle board screw at the centre point to act as a pivot.

  Routing Procedure
The Trend Routabout comes complete with a 30mm plastic guide bush and a special TCT cutter with a built in depth guiding bearing fitted to the shank. If you are not using a Trend router, you will need to attach the Trend Unibase to your router. With the guide bush and cutter fitted to the router, place onto the template. (A guide bearing attached to the cutter body automatically sets the depth of the cutter). Rotate the router around the centre screw in a clockwise direction, cutting to the full depth in a series of shallow steps until the cutter breaks through.

  Completed Cut
When cut, the waste piece is supported by the wings of the jig. The stepped cutter automatically cuts a rebated edge on the waste piece as well as around the edge of the hole.

  End Result
Fit the plastic insert ring into the access hole and turn the waste piece over. Drop it into the ring and it will lay flush with the floor surface. The floor is now safe to walk over again, and will allow access quickly time and time again.
