Hi everyone,

I am located in Syracuse NY and I am trying to get the ambition to start using my router. I have had it for a year now and it is still in the box. I saw a post on making a jukebox and it got me interested. I have use a router a few times but this was years ago. I have few bits and I need to start practicing because just by looking at a bit I can't tell how it will cut. Looking forward to all of your help and suggestions.

Tony

Tony,

Welcome to the router forum. I assume you have little if any woodworking experience, so I recommend you begin learning the basics of router woodworking.

Here is a link to begin with:

Hey, Tony! Glad to hear about someone else in the Syracuse area. Welcome!

Which reminds me that since I've just retired I should rejoin Sawdust and Woodchips (our local woodworking group) even if I'm never free to make the monthly Thursday evening meeting.

That's an idea for you folks in other parts of the world. If you have a local or even regional woodworking association they are often a great source of ideas, support and even used equipment.

Yea, I did a search earlier and saw the group. There are no dates for 2013 yet. I thought about joining. I will need to go to a meeting first, that is assuming I can find time as well. My son has soccer on Thursday for a while so not sure how feasible it will be.

Thanks,

Tony
