Charles, those also could be my answer. I need to check then out. Yes, my sled router has speed control.

Roger, Possibly dangerous in a hand held router, but my router is mounted in the middle of the sled which is a 30 inch x 15 inch piece of 3/4 inch MDF, with end guards, over a pair of chipboard rails. No possible way of the bit getting close to any part of my body before i let go of the trigger. I have far too much respect for these routers to put myself into the firing line.

Like to see a picture of your sled operation.

Canada is a nanny state too Roger just not quite as far along as yours- yet.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Herb, this is an earlier prototype of my current small parts planer.
I dont work from plans, just put things together as I get the idea and then modify as I find faults.
I'm explaining this as the reason that its made out of scrap pieces and has no finishing whatsoever, because things get changed so many times it would be a waste to make them look nice. I'm currently on the mark 3 version but have ideas for the mark 4.

@sunnybob

very functional. Assume the slab to be flattened is supported by wedges held in place by dabs of glue from that gun.

its very versatile. The slab is a granite kitchen floor tile, as smooth and flat as anything I could ever achieve.

Its rested on 4 screw feet that go through the base unit via threaded inserts.

I can adjust the height of the tile infinitely over the full height of the side rails by using the feet (The tile stays the same height from the bench, but the base and side rails go up or down, front / back/ side to side / corner to corner).

I dont use wedges, just hot glue the pieces to the tile and then use the router sled to flatten them. The glue holds firm up to a 2mm cut, deeper than that and I have had the glue let go once or twice.
Very quick to adjust and extremely accurate, just takes too long using a 12mm bit.

I like that Bob, simple and easy, I tink I could build one of those. I have never tried that method, but heard so many folks here doing it that I have to try it.

For planing I used to use a bottom cleaning bit until I found that a dish-cutter gave a better finish.

Typical though, The uk branch of infinity is out of stock. I've emailed asking for a delivery date. Thanks very much
I thought the infinity bit a tad expensive So Santa is bringing me https://www.amazon.com/CMT-852-504-1...cmt+planer+bit which might be more available in europe. Chuck I use the whiteside dishcutter and get some overlap so I will test compare it with the new cmt

Learning is an exciting adventure
