Hi All

I've been woodworking for about 14 years since I retired in 1996. I have been using (or underusing) routers for some time now. After all these years I have finally bought a really good router and my goal is to get more out of this very versatile machine. I thought it might be interesting to share experience with other router users and maybe learn a few new tricks.

Welcome to the forum Mike, spend some time going through members galleries and you will find many, many projects made predominately with the router.

Mike;; If you are new to routing there are many here who would use the router an a variety of modes and I am sure if you have a question simply ask. I have been using the router for over 40 years and I have introduced New routing techniques and like some others I have submitted various projects and topics on You Tube (Routing with Tom O'Donnell

Thanks to everyone for the welcoming messages and the tips too. While not really new to routing, after seeing some of the inventive jigs, etc. it is clear to me that there is a lot to learn here. I am looking forwarding to a continuing dialog with all of you.

Mike
