I have seen on YouTube the German woodworker demonstrate the use of a European workbench and also routing JIGs. I did not know how many JIgs he has invented for the router until last evening. If he penetrated the United States market, I believe he could be a big hit here.
I liked his design of what I believe he calls his “Magic Box”. It is a horizontal routing table with a second part that he can easily and precisely “set vertically the router in the “Z plane. It is quite ingenious.
I have placed a link above where he demonstrates the use of this routing JIG.
