Hi Harry,
Don't worry I couldn't come close to your skill level.
I had watched how you had done the bright mild steel but I don't have the tools to do that so I settled for the threaded rod. As I continued to think about it, being able to adjust the rods up or down in the ski slots would allow the trammel point and router to operate on different planes. Routing that curved slot on my auxiliary drill press table was very easy to do.

JIMMIEM Here are the pictures. I used the ski prototype for the trammel. The finished skiis wanted to be in the picture too. I used the trammel to route the slot in the auxilliary drill press table. The slot allows the fence to pivot.....got the plans from WoodSmith magazine. I searched for trammel plans. I saw one that used a block of wood for the pivot. The block was drilled to accept the rods. With the router skii I already had the pivot....just needed to add a piece of wood for the pivot pin.

Took me a couple of minutes to attach the wood block. Worked perfectly. Thank You again, Harry.
For some reason the pictures are not showing

Made Router Trammel From Harry's Router Ski

I needed a router trammel for a current project. I had made some router skiis using Harry's plans. I attached a wood block to a router ski and drilled a hole in the block for the pivot pin. I used threaded rods for my skiis which made it easy to adjust the trammel to exact length. Because of the rod slots in the ski the router base thickness is infinitely adjustable. Took me a couple of minutes to attach the wood block. Worked perfectly. Thank You again, Harry.
