Class Preview

Hand-held routers are incredibly versatile. Used properly, they can add detail to an edge, create rock solid joints, add decorative details, and more. There are many keys to successful and safe router use, and we’re proud to bring you a broad selection of router know- how in this class.

Getting Started

Let’s get started by going over the array of routers in the market place. Then we’ll talk about bit selection, and how to properly mount a router bit in the collet of the router. We’ll also discuss bit maintenance, how you can test your bits to make sure they’re sharp and, if necessary, sharpen them in your shop.

Master Cutting Techniques

One of the more common uses of a hand-held router is adding decorative details to an edge. The best cuts will be burn-free and require little sanding, something you’ll be able to achieve after working through this part of the class. You’ll also learn the benefits of using a fence to guide your router.

Router Know-How

Plunge routers provide a great way to make cuts such as mortises, and we’ll show you how to set up for this joint. You’ll also see how a router can: • Be used as a cross cut tool • Be used freehand for sign making • Cut flutes for architectural details • Put guide bushings to work

Class Summary

George wraps up this class with a reminder to practice the skills you learned with your router – and make it one of the most versatile and effective tools in your shop.
