Do you mean a router analogue of the radial arm saw or routers that operate above the workpiece, for example router skiing or pin routers or something like the youtube video I am going to try to embed?

As Tom said there are router sleds and router skis, both of which can be searched on this forum. One member attached a right angle bracket onto a radial arm saw and if I ever see a cheap radial arm drill for sale I'm going to snag it and try using it for one. There are also horizontal mounted routers and they have their own advantages in that position. Mark Sternberg I think it was also made a multi positional design which you might find on this forum (the post is a few years old) but it might be on youtube too.

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.

it's a great tool if you're making a number of one item, it takes a while to build a good pattern and it's important that you have a good pattern.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

I had one of those a few years ago when I was making some high chair trays. Really was a slick tool.

Now I have one from Lee Valley, haven't set it up , but is on my "to do" list.
