SURE THAT THE ROUTER IS TURNED
OFF AND THE POWER CORD
UNPLUGGED
BEFORE MAKING
ANY ADJUSTMENTS.
NOTE: Make sure the adjustable
joinUng fence Is flush with the right
fence facing before proceeding.
1. Install the desired piloted bit in the
router.
2. Follow the instructions on page 25 to
set the desired height-of-cut (Fig. 20).
Make sure that the router is
SECURELY in place.
3. Adjustthe
router table fence back just
enough that the pilot on the router bit
will control the depth-of-cut. The router
bit pilot should just barely protrude past
the fence facings. Tighten the fence
clamping knobs SECURELY.
4. Position both fence facings so that they
clear the bit by 1/4'_ then tighten the
wingnuts on the fence facings.
5. 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.
6. Make sure that both the router and
switch box are OFF, then plug the
muter into the switch box.
7. 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. 21.
8. Using the switch box, turn the router
OFF. If any adjustments are needed,
unplug the power cord and repeat
steps 2-7 until all adjustments are
correct. Once you are satisfied with
all settings, make the cut with the
actual workpiece.
