Find Out Which Wood Router is Best For You Before You Buy

Сообщение Jasonplans1 » 07 апр 2021, 16:11

The wood router is essential among woodworking tools because it adds decorative detail that enhances and defines the final appearance of your woodworking project. Used correctly, this tool is to the woodworker what a fine paintbrush is to an artist. It's all in the details. The router is a versatile woodworking tool that can be used for a variety of tasks including rabbeting and making dado grooves.

There are four, basic types of wood routers on the market today: laminate trimmers, lightweight or low-powered routers in the 7/8 to 1 1/2 HP range, medium-powered routers in the one and three-quarters to two and one-quarter HP range and high-powered routers in the 3-4 HP range. Each has its use and I have owned all of them at the same time. The laminate trimmers do what their name implies as well as other light-weight tasks such as making hinge mortises. They are only suitable for small router bits but they are easily maneuverable and fit nicely right in your palm.

If you need more horsepower but still like the ease of a lightweight router, the 7/8 to 1/12 HP routers will do a fine job of spinning router bits up to a half-inch radius round-over bits. Every shop should have one of these handy for bench-top work. They are a bit small for router table use. Two and one-quarter HP woodworking routers have sufficient power to spin large router bits through hardwood and yet they are still light enough to be manageable as bench-top wood routers. While any wood router over 2 HP can be used in a router table, I prefer the high powered ones for that application because there is no need to worry about how heavy they are and you might as well have as much power handy as you might need. Most, but not all, of these larger routers are plunge routers. The high horsepower is necessary to plunge large bits deep into hardwood to make mortises and the like.

If I could only afford one wood router, it would be the two and one-quarter HP variety because it is light enough for most bench-top work and can also be used in a router table. If I could afford two routers, I would probably have a 7/8 to 1½ HP machine for bench-top work and a 3½ HP wood router under my router table. I don't like mounting and dismounting routers under my router table, so having a lighter wood router on hand near the bench at all times really speeds things up.
