Thumbs up Interesting Videos

I found these videos on Youtube tonight.

I thought they were simple and to the point, a good primer on template routing for signs.

I had some questions, but still learned some tips...

I started to watch the first one James but I was in fear of getting palpitations watching the guy fiddle with those stupid, potentially dangerous template guides.

Hi James

Thanks,,,Good videos, many ask how to use a standard base router on templates and the video will show them how to use it plus the neat way to hold the templates in place..

But I would add the need for the Milescraft base plate that makes the job easy and safe without the need for any tools to keep the ring nut in place..just a quick turn and they are in place..no need to buy the guides they are in the kit with the MilesCraft plate.. that would make Harry happy I'm sure.

Nice video,But I also agree with the milescraft statement just started back in the hobby a few weeks ago and the milescraft bushing and template guides realy shortened the learning curve.

new here, and have a set of similar two piece brass guide bushings...what specifically is the safety hazard with these...I'm assuming the risk of the lock ring coming loose from the bushing during operation? I see a lot of folks using/promoting similar bushing sets (mainly the Woodstock) in online tutorials.

Hi Ron,

There is no problem using the brass guide bushings - for some reason brass tends to cling to brass.

Harry is not fond at all of the steel guide bushings with the perceived tendency to come loose.

The makita routers use a one piece guide bushings which are screwed to the base plate.

Even in the video, the operator used pliers to tighten the lock ring - which should not be necessary.

As I said in my original post - I had questions - and I knew some of the members would pick up on the points raised.

My brass bushing retainer ring has never come loose in operation. The steel one's threads get wrapped with Teflon plumber's tape. They no longer come loose, either.
