Experiment to post Video to explain why I have had great success with the use of the template guides.
This is an opportunity to show the advantages of the guides so when I present a topic I will have the oportunity to follow it up with the video.
I had posted the two small tables that I had constructed for our church, very small only 200mm high to take a vase of flowers I will go back and see if I can get the video and post it here.
This video is here to introduce Template Tom and show some of the material I have produced with the aid of the guides. Also some of the projects were constructed by my ‘Students’ (35-82year olds) when I was teaching at the Association for the blind.
The reason for making this presentaion is to inform/instruct members on the use of the guides a method that will also introduce greater safety awareness when using the router There is no great expense with regards to Jigs and templates as you are able to construct your own once you have mastered the use of the guides.
There are hundreds of processes that is best completed with the router in the plunge mode or should I simple say by getting the router out from under the table some times. (I have three routers inserted permanently in the table mode as there are processes that require the use of the table mode.) Some router experts say that “90% of all routing processes can be achieved with the router in the table mode. I dispute this statement due to the fact they have never taken the time to investigate the use of the template guides to their full potential and I can submit a great number processes where it is safer to use the guides.
If you have any questions please ask as I may be able to answer them.
When you have viewed the video you will hopefully consider the purchase of the template guides.
Note: Most sets of guides are lacking a large diameter guide which in my opinion is very important.
I look forward to any comments you may like to make.
