The router is the most often used and, without a doubt, the most versatile tool in the shop today. In this informative workshop, Marc will distinguish the differences between the trim, general, plunge, and "D" handle routers as well as safety and maintenance. Students will learn about the large selection of router bits available today and which ones work best for the job at hand. Speed, torque, feed direction, and rate will be discussed as well as carbide versus high-speed steel, bit diameter, shaft size, collet types, and sharpening. The majority of the class will be spent showing setups for a router table and how to make several fixtures including circle, elliptical, mortise-and-tenon, cope and stile, mock dovetail, spline, inlay, star bursts, fluted jambs, and many others.
