By now you know the advantages and uses of routers, but have you ever thought of
mounting your router in a bench or saw table?
Routers are often easier to use this way, especially for small items. The
adjustable fence makes it faster and safer to operate too.
Youíll still need your safety gear, and the operation of the tool is essentially
- Use firm, even pressure on the work.
- Keep fingers and hands clear.
You might like to make yourself some aids to make routing safer and more
accurate. Pressure boards (or finger boards) help to keep your work piece firmly
down on the bench, while helping to guard the cutter. Make other fences and
jigs, as you need them, especially if you have repetitive cuts to make.
Connect your router up to a
workshop vacuum. It not only helps keep the shed clean, it keeps the cutting
area clear of waste.
Ryobi Routers are available at all leading hardware stores.
