Mortise router jig
Sometimes friends ask me; ‘what is it you do in that workshop MaFe’, I scratch my neck and say; ‘mostly tools to make tools or jigs to make jigs’...
This project is one of those.
A jig for my router so I can make mortises and I needed it for another jig so it was why it was made at this time.
The jig can be made from a thin piece of ply and some scrap wood also, but I had some plexi and alu profiles so I made it in ‘Festool style’ to match my router.
The principal is so simple I guess it needs no explanation, but feel free to ask.
Remember there are no stupid questions only stupid answers.
1. Jig in action…
2. Materials, Plexiglas and an alu profile.
3. Holes Four screws and wing nuts hold it together.
4. Center the bit over the mortise and tighten the screws.
5. Like so.
6. You can add clamps on the wood as stops before you route.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
