I’d like to know more about Charles’s jigs.

I have never seen any manual or instructional
video for pin router methods.

I have a smaller one too, a light model used in the
printing industry. I used to use it with small cutters
for slotting guitar bridges and making freehand
router jigs with slots for template bushings.

The one I use now is a 2hp Invicta model similar
to the JET shown.

Pin routers excel at making quick slotting cuts
that otherwise involve more fussy topside
router setups.

They can also bore holes really fast with the
pneumatic plunge. Chair legs can be shaped
and mortised quickly for joinery and back
rungs using templates.

The pin router at a given depth routes
every part to the same depth, no matter
what its thickness or irregularity on top.
A regular router or router table or inverted
pin router indexes depth by the depth of
the cutter.
