extended router base for routing window
« on: April 27, 2019, 04:43 AM »
thought this might be useful inspiration to anyone who needs to do some awkward routing. the beginning of the video shows how i made the rebates deeper on a window. i made the window for 12mm sealed units and then decided to go with 16mm which needs deeper rebates.
the larger router base is made from 6mm tufnol and recessed to make it effectively the same thickness as a standard base plate, i use this quite often and in this case just stuck some aluminium angle and flat bar for extended support.

Nice. I was just doing this for an end panel was wishing I had this. Like the channel and the "mm" units.
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple
