Default Router Magic

I bought ROUTER MAGIC by Bill Hylton at a garage sale this Fall and just got around to reading through most of it. This book has a wealth of usable info. The bushing chart is one page worth copying. Pretty impressive. Hope your local library has a copy.

I have to agree that it is a great book. I have read thru mine several times and still learn something new each time.

Hi Clouseau:

Agreed, Router Magic is an excellent resource. So is Bill Hylton's Woodworking with the Router.

Y agree to, Exactly, Router Router magic and Woodworker with the router are 2 very, very big books
I love these 2 books even if I lose a lot, since I understand little English. Drawings and photos are enough to understand.
I recommend these 2 books to all those that begin with the router

I have both and enjoy reading them. I also like Patrick Spielmans books, they got me on my way in routing. Back then I was developing router jigs for guitar building and a Trend book had a good but limited section on guitars.

Router Magic and Woodworking with the Router are the two books that started me into routerland. They are so information packed that I don't consider them light reading. I use them as reference books all the time. Today, I visited my local plastics supplier to get lots of acrylic and phenolic sheets to make many of the jigs show in Router Magic. What is nice is the materials lists that make procuring items easier.

I am in the process of making the shop built table but that is a subject for another forum...

Intriguingly, Amazon, Waterstones and W.H.Smug all have it at the same price.

Recommended?

Cheers

Hi Duane

Yes you did. Thank you. It was Alan Holthams Complete Routing I was querying.

Cheers
