Cross Hair Accurate
I made an improvement to my router table that has revolutionized my routing. I scored shallow grooves at right angles across the exact center of my black phenolic insert plate - at perfect right angles. I plowed the registration grooves using my router and sharp V-bit. Because the plate is black, I wiped white paint into the grooves and they stood out like cross hairs. Now, regardless of which bit is in the router, I know exactly where the center of that bit is. Setting up for off-the-fence routing is now much quicker and dead accurate.- Cindy McGaha, Russel Springs, Kentucky
