Trim routers are a very handy tool to have in the shop, in part because they’re so easy to handle with one hand. This instructional video teaches you how to use a flush trim router bit, a V-bit for free-hand sign making, and a roman ogee bit. All of these cutters can be easily used in a trim router.
Why a router?
Routers are amazingly versatile tools to have in you shop, available for your woodworking projects. There’s a nearly infinite array of router bit profiles and shapes that can be mounted in a router. And, with their high RPM (revolutions per minute), the surface left behind typically requires very little sanding. Make sure that you’re getting the most out of your router by checking the instruction WoodWorkers Guild of America provides on how to use a router.
The router family
Routers range in size from trim routers, which are easily hand held, to large machines best suited for use in a router table because of their size and weight. Trim routers got their name from being used with flush trim router bits on plastic laminate, and are a great router to use for detail work.
