RYOBI PLUNGE ROUTER

A router can be used for matching period architraves, joinery and cabinetwork.

There is the router itself and then there are the different types of cutters.

The plunge router allows you to start the cut partway through; it comes with a fence and a spanner or a set of spanners.

When using the plunge router you must wear hearing protection and safety glasses.

The cutters need to be matched to your router. They have imperial and metric sizes on them; if they don’t match there is a risk that the cutters will fly out.

Cutters come in 2 types, those with a wheel guide and those without.

The ones with a wheel guide are used to follow the shape of a curve.

Kevin demonstrated cutting a cove with a cutter with a wheel guide. Use your fence if you’re cutting a straight piece of timber. You can also do large or small bevels and the wheel guide allows you to follow any shape.

A half round cutter can be used to put a shoulder on the timber. It is a nice feature and it takes the sharp edge off.

You can make half round grooves, for instance to hold plates up on shelves. Use your fence to keep cuts nice and straight.

The roman “ogee” is an old style decorative moulding. Straight cutters are available in various sizes, and they can also be used to make grooves. Dovetail cutters allow you to create super strong joinery and cabinetwork. The angled sides make the joints lock together tightly.

The Ryobi Plunge Router is one of the most versatile home improvement tools and it won’t cost you a fortune.
