Topic tags/keywords: question router jig craftsman

router tool

Early version of the Legacy.

Router sat on a plate that moved along the base while the wood rotated (or not).
Hand cranked.
Base was about 4’.
By changing gear settings one could make spirals or ropes.

Could also be compared to the smaller Beall Pen Wizard.

First, need to know what it was called.
Second, wondering if one might be available.

It was called a Router Crafter sold through sears untill I believe 1994. While at a woodworkers sale, he was quitting woodworking because of health reasons, I saw one and bought it from him, it was and still is brand new still in box unused. I hoped to use it someday but never did, it is still setting in my shop in the original box. I paid $150 for it but don’t know if you would be interested, not knowing where you are shipping maybe a problem, give me a PM if you would like a picture.

Garry, that’s a fine looking candlestick.
When my Dad had one he made lots of canes. Had a deal with the local Sears. Often shovels would come in with the handles broken. They would take off the metal and send it back, throw away the handles. They ended up keeping them for my Dad and he turned them into canes.
My wife wants candlesticks.
