Default This is a great router tool

I have been watching this develop on FastCap's web site but they finally released it today.

Very interesting, thanks for posting. That was a nice piece of walnut veneer he was edging ,sure don't want to to gouge into that. It seems to stabilize the router quite nicely. I like the curve, but an inside square corner would leave a larger radius to square up than a bearing piloted bit does. Does work good on wide open areas, tho, like most tools not made for every situation or operator.

Hmmm, looked it up - $35. Seems like a clever idea.

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.

Yes we went through the safety issues plus pros and cons already.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

On a positive note, I think it would be a useful addition to the tool kit, if one was doing a lot of counter tops, veneer edging, or p-lam work.

Holding a cutter very square can be hard to do, this would fix that and make it easy to hold, there were a few comments about this on the previous post that says its dangerous and I am not sure how it can add to the danger, if anything it would let you keep your fingers further away, I would buy one and use it.

I thought the same thing. Fingers were nowhere near the bit.

Lots of noise about what it wouldn't do, but nothing about what it DOES do. I think it's a very useful addition to the workshop.

OK, fess up...which one of you clowns stole my sig? It was right here a second ago.

@Semipro I missed the other post. I just thought I would post the video that was released yesterday. Seems like a lot of negative responses about it. I do edge trimming all the time and this will save me a bunch of set up and allow me to do climb cuts comfortably. That alone makes it worth the $35. I ordered one. When I get it I will let Herb borrow it and he can give you an expert view.

Keith I am fully in favour of working safely, routers are not safe and you have to keep your fingers away from the cutter or not use routers at all. It is very easy to roll a cutter into the work piece and this attachment would stop that from happening, if I see one over here I would buy it. N
