Routers do detail milling: rabbets, dadoes, grooves, flush-trimming, and shaping straight or curved edges. You can mount your router under a bench-top table as a stationary shaper, and un-mount it to use as a portable detail milling tool as well. In either case, these guidelines apply:
— Unplug the tool before changing cutter bits.
— Tighten bits thoroughly to prevent their wandering during the cut.
— Turn the router on before starting the cutter into the work.
— Double-check the cutter depth setting by running a test cut on a piece of scrap.
Router bits:Many bits have both roller bearings and carbide cutting edges; these bits give you the best cuts for the longest time. All cutters are designed to make a crisp, finished edge that needs no sanding.
