« Part 22: Kent Shepherd ...Blog Site Part 23 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 24: Using the template. »

The Torque Workcentre can also be used as an over head pin router.
To accomplish this you will need a template… basically a board with a groove cut in the shape of the item you want to copy.. so that the groove will move over a pin in the table and the router above will cut the shape below.. Very simple but care must be taken…
Here is how to make a template…

Next up will be using the template to make a cheese board... in Camphor Laurel of course..
I will also be making a template for the famous Racing Kangaroos….so stay tuned.

Good video Larry. You could just use the cheese board as the template and run the bit against it’s edge instead of a groove. I can see though that the groove will capture the bit and maybe be less stressful for the operator.
