The first part of this review is just focusing on the set up on the CRB 7 router jig attachment. Set up is pretty straightforward it’s not really that difficult to set up your router. I am using Ryobi router RE180Pl1G Plunge router. The only thing with this set up is they are assuming your router has the wing nuts for a straight edge already attached to your router, my router didn’t have them so I actually had to go to my local hardware store and buy some knobs. Now if you have...

Finger Joint Jig Hack

Finger Joint Jig Hack

03-25-2016 04:23 PM by SJ881 | 3 comments »

Just bought this Jig and Tried it Yesterday for the first time, Joint came out really nice. I watched a few Videos and READ the Directions First. Only thing that needed help was once on the Router table and adjusted, I could not get to the Adjustment hole for my router. I needed to raise the bit a little and had to remove the jig,adjust the bit then Re-adjust the finger joint jig before Starting. Did a little research last night and this was suggested! DUH! (slaps Forehead!) used a pi...

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

03-05-2016 02:26 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

Working on a dresser for my daughter. I decided to do the drawers with dovetail joints. Let me preface with what I am about to say with the facts that I never owned a dovetail jig, and I have never cut dovetails by hand. I have a very close friend who has a Rockler dovetail jig, and he graciously offered to let me use it. Meanwhile, I kinda had my eye on purchasing the Leigh RTJ400 jig. Well the dresser project got around to the point where I had to get to work on the drawers, but I hadn...

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

11-27-2015 03:33 PM by RogerBean | 8 comments »

Micro-Fence plunge base w/edge fence This is the nicest, most precise, best machined, smoothest operating, meticulously designed, all round good-looking router plunge base I’ve ever encountered. It’s also the most expensive. You can buy a complete Festool router for less than this base and fence. That doesn’t imply that you should. I ordered one of the Micro Fence “package deals” which included the model that fits my Bosch Colt variable speed trim router plus the fence assembly the co...

Classical Plunge Bit Failure.

Classical Plunge Bit Failure.

09-26-2015 09:12 AM by robscastle | 11 comments »

An interesting situation occured when I was making Edna’s Kitchen Benches. I was routing a profile in the length of the leg when whilst using a Mustarka Router bit I routed over or through a knot.This knot completely totalled my new router bit in one pass. History: This was a brand new unused bit and very similar profile to Photo 1 it was a 1/4 shank, 19mm dia but a 3.2 radius. The profile on the bit is similar to the I have posted in photo No 1. (from what I can see the only ...

A Decent Jig

A Decent Jig

08-25-2015 09:44 PM by whope | 5 comments »

I had picked this up at least a year ago and the project I had in mind never made it beyond the thinking stage. I finally opened it up to do a simple walnut disk (will be posted later). I had used the smaller guide (M200) and have been happy with it. This jig centers very easily with a 1/4” steel pin and an insert that fits into the router opening. It fit fine on my DeWalt 618. The guide pivots around an 1/8” steel pin that you put into the hole that marks the size of the circl...

Jig Broke on first use

Jig Broke on first use

07-13-2015 08:40 PM by Richard | 8 comments »

Bought this 3 months ago to use for making gum Ball machines. Used it for the first time yesterday after mounting it to my new De Walt compact router back in April. Made the first 2 cuts at 1/4” and 1/2” then when about a little over half way thru the 3/4” deep cut the plate broke at screw mounting hole and let the bit hit the plate at the 1” pin hole. Also had issues keeping the locating pin in the plate , it keep falling out when I turned the Router over. This is a g...

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

06-25-2015 10:06 PM by Julian | 23 comments »

I used this 3/8” up spiral bit for over a year when making mortises for a gate (in redwood).This bit did not get used very much. Supposedly it is solid carbide.Recently I was routing slots for a jig in a medium dense wood using my router table.When I was nearly finished I heard a bang and discovered the bit broke into 3 pieces.These router bits are not cheap; over $50. I emailed Freud twice on from their website about thisand to find out if they warranty the bits. No response after 3...

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

06-21-2015 05:47 AM by MikeSpanky | 7 comments »

Never thought I’d be ordering such an expensive router bit set as this. That was until my wife and I began talking about new kitchen cabinets. I knew kitchen designs as well as methods for building them had changed since I last built a set for mom and dad over 25 years ago. It was when I began my research on YouTube that I saw how much things had changed. I had seen raised panel doors in the big box stores and loved the look. But to tackle A job like this I would have be out quite a bit...
