I’d like to share this handy router table jig that enables to use any router bits (think bearing free) to mill edges of round surfaces. Picture #3 shows the results from this particular bearing free router bit I used for this demonstration.
After setting the fence so the piece just kisses the bit, power up the router, lean the round piece on the right fence side, roll it slowly towards the bit, and when the piece makes contact with both sides of the fence (and of course the router bit), pivot it counterclockwise, as shown by the arrow. Several shallow cuts ensure safe work.
It works great and I hope you’ll like it. Feel free to comment.
