Benchtop Template Multirouter phase2
These are some photos of my multirouter in the second phase. I build it and now it is time to test, adjust and setup this jig.
I have to make templates for it too. This will take some time,especially in this time of year, as there are also other things to do. When I have tested everything I’ll show it here again. Perhaps even with a video (I am not good making videos)
Hopefully I have choosen the right pictures to explain everything.
The frontside with the "follower" and place to set up the template.The table moves forward and backwards by moving the lever.
By moving the handle, the rod followes the template,and so the routerbit can route the workpiece in shape.
Even vertical routing is possible. By setting the width and height you can even routesquares of 8 cm x 16 cm.(by using attachments for up and down settings).
Here the table is fixed by a knob on the wanted distance, for use as a normal router table.Therefore a fence is now attached (bolts and threaded nuts).The upper part of the table is now mounted on the lower part.(bolts and threaded nuts).
By setting the range of the movement up and down you can route a vertical dado.The moving to left or right is fixed. The attachments for setting the range to left or right can be fastened on the frame ((bolts and threaded nuts) if you like.
