For some reason the “Split fence” method on the router table never worked for me.
So, I went to the more “Idiot proof” method of jointing with hand held router and straight edge.
But, I got tired of measuring distances, so I made “Locators” to help me to position and clamp the straight edge in seconds. The locators are good only for the bit dia that they were made with, I used 3/8” dia bit.
Because of the straight edge, this method will work only with board that are wider by at list 1” or so than the “bit-to-base edge” distance (on my router it’s 2-3/16”).
The example is on Melamine boards for clarity but on the last pics, I have a real one and sorry, 600 mm is 24”.
