Smile Hi, This is my first post. Fraser

Hi,
I'm new to the router but have been experimenting while building a kitchen island with raised panel doors and island ends. I bought a Ryobi router table and
freud 3 raised panel bits. I got along fine with the rail and stile bits but the throat of the table is too small for the 2.75 in. raised panel bit. Would I be better off buying a vertical bit or trying to adapt the table? Thanks! Fraser

There are advocates on both sides of the horizontal vs. vertical panel-bit debate. Some say you'll get smoother cuts with the horizontal bit. A tall fence (12" or higher) is usually recommended for the vertical bits. With either, multiple passes are recommended.

Also, large diameter horizontal bits are usually the territory of the larger 3 hp routers, with variable speed (10,000 RPM is usually recommended for the biggie bits).

Hi Fraser

No big deal, just make a sub base plate for your router table,use some 3/4" thick MDF/plywood stock, cut a hole out for the bit to fit into (the norm would be 3 1/2" diam. for some of the chips to fall in ) clamp it to the top of your router table with a small slots for the fence to fit up to your setup..than you can use the bits you now have..make a stop block for your router on the under side of the table so it can't go to deep, many ways to make a stop block,the one I use is the stop block on the column, drill a hole in some stock, split it in 1/2 cut to the right size and tape it in place.. or use one of the threaded holes on the base and with a right angle bracket you have it set, or it can be some wire just to stop the router at the point you want it to stop at...

" vertical bits " you don't need a tall fence see below..it just take a pass or two with the jig in the picture

OR ▼ on a Horz. router table
