Question Visual Routing

Here goes, don"t kick me out. Routers are great, handheld router work is a great feeling. Buy a router, make a dovetail. Sure, to try it you have to buy a template, a few to a lotta bucks. Why round router plates? Square or oblong give greater accuracy, and apply to jigs much more easily. Safely holding workpiece and supporting router for edge routing. M&T joints, should be able to gang cut the tenons. My name, Vizrout, means visual routing, cutting to the layout line rather than a lot of measuring and remeasuring. I am not selling anything, interested in feedback and then advertising and selling. Thats for later. A cheap Harbor Freight clamp table, slightly modified, makes a great edge worker. Any size plywood groove cut with standard cutters, without moving the fence. Don"t know where this poat fits, maybe the round file cause I sound like I inhaled too much sawdust. I took a long time before posting, thanks for reading it. Put it where you think it goes and come what may.

Concept of visual routing is my router plate with adjustable alignment indicators so I know exactly the margins of the installed cutter. Rather than measure I align the primary indicators with the layout lines of the workpiece. Will prepare show and tell with pictures of dovetails,traditional and vari-spaced, M&T joints,slots and grooves, etc. A HF clamp table is similar to the B&D Workmate table, modified so there is room for the cutter bit. The one I will show is the B&D. My router plate is square or oblong, therefore I can jig for X and Y cutting, making gang cutting of tenons easy.
I'm not too much into the internet stuff yet, but I am working on attachment pictures.

I think I'm gonna like your concept. Posting pictures isn't difficult. Getting them the correct size can be, though. At least, for me.
