That looks pretty handy. I might have to add it to my wish list.

I have wondered what a pin router is and now I know. One question though, what about tear out on end grain?

Heck, I liked it so much when I found out it was under $50 I went ahead and ordered one. I’ll post a review when I get it in and try it out.

Neat system.
I wonder how many more they could sell if they hired Billy Mays. LOL

You can achieve the same results with a flush trim bit with a top mounted bearing, available in various sizes. If making several copies of a single design, use a solid pattern with foam tape around the parimeter and a vaccum port to hold pattern in place. 1/4” plexiglass works well and lasts forever!
Note: Many decrative edge bits are also available with a bearing guide.

Guess I’ll have to get one of these and throw out all my flush trim bearing bits. ;)

My first thought when I started watching the video was “What’s the point? You can do that with a flush trim bit.”

But then I got interested when he used it to rout a recess following a pattern. Of course you can use a guide bushing and a template to route a recess, but the template has to be a certain thickness and very flat. This system looks like it gives you a few more options.
