Default Pantorouter

Matthias Wandel on You Tube is a very remarkable wood worker and very smart. He made this pantorouter a while back and it sure does a lot of things and does them well, at least when he is showing what it does. I am surprised a company has not made one for the public. I guess it would cost a lot but every thing cost a lot.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I believe he is educated as a mechanical engineer. Don't know if he has a day job, but he is a genius at designing and making tools. I do know he sells plans. I believe there is a metal pantorouter made now, Hong Kong maybe, quite similar to his. I recall a video where the builder sent him one and he compared the two. I do not need a pantorouter, but if I did, I would rather get the plans from him and make one.

Herb I sure didn't know you had one. I bet you do love it. I think it so neat and to me it look very useful.

I made his pantorouter about 4 years ago, from his plans. ( I've made his noisy marble machine too, kids love it, also adults).

A guy from India started making Matt's pantorouter in steel, for sale worldwide.

I am a big fan of Matt, and look forward to his new projects.

Links here for the wood and steel machines:

Hope I aint broke mods rules with links.

That steel pantorouter is impressive but boy it cost a lot of money. Still I can see some wood workers buying it.

Sour grapes? No, just seeking truth.
I'm certainly impressed with the simplicity and aplomb of the video, very well presented.
And I'm impressed with accuracy I'm seeing.
What I don't see is registration. The centeredness of the mortise and tenons to the stock is not addressed. The fit looks superb but are the excavations on center (with respect to the stock section)?

The commercial version is make mostly with extruded aluminum. The web site is hybridpantorouter.com. Yes. it is pricey but if you were to use it alot it might be worth it.

Quillman, the alignment is done at the template and the table has a center mark.
