Default Angles of router



Hi,

I am so new here that this will be my first question to ask this forum.

I know with my table saw I can make nice angle cuts, but I have a problem as stated below:


I just got my Porter Cable router moutner on router table and stand and
I am trying to figure how I can make some some angles using my router
instead of just straight line cuts.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forums Greg.

Why do want to make angle cuts with a router?

Greg,

The low-budget approach is to put the wood on a wedge to tilt it while supporting it, if the angle isn't too severe.

The expensive way is to buy one of these for $230 Woodhaven - Woodworking Tools, Supply & Equipment or, if you have a trim router and get their last one in stock for $100 Woodhaven - Woodworking Tools, Supply & Equipment

Otherwise, some here have built their own angle mounts, but it was an involved process.

Maybe others will think of an inexpensive solution I have missed?

Don't for get if you route wood on a angle you are trapping the wood, not to smart on the router table, the router table is not a table saw..one cutting point unlike the table saw..

They do make many,many router bits with the angles on the bit..

It can be made out of MDF,t-track, and some clamps.

I have shown this on here before but this is what I came up with. It's a router table that can change from 0 to 90 degree's. I use it a lot but I mostly use it for routing groves for splines at any angle. I hope to come up with some plans for it in the next month or so.
