EDGE CUTTING WITH
NON-PILOTED
ROUTER BITS
(Figs. 18 and 19)
[ WARNING]
ALWAYS MAKE
SURE THAT THE ROUTER IS TURNED
OFF AND THE POWER CORD
UNPLUGGED
BEFORE MAKING ANY
ADJUSTMENTS.
NOTE: Make sure the adjustable
jointing fence is flush with the right
fence facing before proceeding.
When using non-piloted router bits, the
fence is used to set the depth-of-cut.
For
deep cuts, do not try to cut the total depth
all in one pass. Repeat the cut, taking
multiple smaller cuts.
1. Install the desired bit in the router.
2. Follow the instructions on page 25
to set the desired depth-of-cut and
height-of-cut (Fig. 18). Make sure that
the fence and router are SECURELY
in place.
3. Position both fence facings so that they
clear the bit by 1/4", then tighten the
wingnuts on the fence facings.
4. Remove the board from the table and
lower the overhead guard to the
operating position.
NOTE: When making adjustments,
use a piece of scrap wood to make
trial cuts before making the cut with
the actual workpiece.
5. Make sure that both the router and
switch box are OFF, then plug the
router into the switch box.
6. While firmly holding a piece of scrap
wood against the fence and down
against the router table, feed a piece
of scrap wood toward the bit in the
direction shown by the arrow in
Fig. 19.
7. Using the switch box, turn the router
OFF. If any adjustments are needed,
unplug the power cord and repeat
steps 2-6 until all adjustments are
correct. Once you are satisfied with
all settings, make the cut with the
actual workpiece.
