Need to rout a rebate on a small frame - table or hand-held?
I'm making a bunch of frames (100m x 150mm x 20mm) and I need to rout a rebate on both sides to accommodate 3.2mm pegboard.
I don't see how I can secure this to rout hand-held so is my only option on the table? I think I would need to remove the fence and essentially rout free-hand.
Would a rebate bit with a 10mm rebate do the job?
I don't see how I could rout before assembly without a complicated stop system or is this rather the safer way to go. Remember the smallest piece will be 100mm long x 20mm thick.
What's the verdict on using a lock mitre bit to effectively make this frame? I need to get the frames together by Thursday and I only have two evenings left.
I know, I know but any pointers would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
