Been using a trim router as a dedicated router for dovetails as well as box joints. Seems to work well. Have a PC jig and real happy with it all
Sorry, i meant to say it is 10mm thick and not 20mm.
the trimmer i got is a Maktec MT370. There is 4 small screws at the base. I guess I could build a small router table for it and then a jig .
On hindsight, I should have maybe pay twice the price and get a Hitachi router instead.
If I understand you Steve the wood is 20mm thick, rather thick for a trim router, you would have to feed very slow and risk burn marks. You would of course have the trim router mounted under a table unless you are capable of making a suitable jig for use with a straight bearing bit. What is it that you're making, perhaps there is a more suitable joint. These shots show the basic type jigs that are used for routing box joints. By the way, welcome to the forum.
