Advanced Tool Class - Router and Router Table 

Instructor - Bill Hamilton

Prerequisites: Core Tool Certification class. 

This class is about safe use of router and router table and is designed to help you with Shop Certification on these machines.

The router is one of the most versatile tools in the shop. It is commonly used to do routine cutting of slots with a straight bit, but has great flexibility in edge profiling and in use with jigs. The router is a simple motor 1, 2 ¼ or 3 ½ horsepower with a changeable collet that can hold thousands of bit styles. It can be mounted in a table for exquisite control or hand held when the project is too large to get onto the table.

If you are not confident in your mastery of this machine, then this is the class for you. We will discuss best practice for each operation, you will see it demonstrated, and then you will have the opportunity to perform the procedure yourself, hands on. By the end of the class, you should feel comfortable that you can operate these machines safely. Materials will be provided.

Bring your PPE.
