How right you are Harry |
We called them sleepers back when I was into cars,,, little ruff on the out side but when it came up to the line look out, they would blow you away every time..it was ways hard to find out what they had under the hood because they just didn't blow they own horn most of the time.. or let any one look under the hood that sounds like Dave...

|Electron||How right you are Dave, as soon as your weather warms up, I'm expecting great things from you. Recent members probably think that you know nothing about wood or metalworking, how wrong they are!|

Re- the free 40mm template guide offered, the first to claim it has been notified that on Monday it will start it's journey to Colorado, USA |
I have advised all others that it has been claimed.
I must again remind members that there is nothing magical about the 40mm guide other than it's nice and big and VERY EASY TO DESIGN templates for especially when combined with metric cutters.

(4) And yes a very important reason is the collet will penetrate though the guide to give the depth required especially when using 1/2" (6.35) cutters
I had another reason why but it escapes my memory (senior moment)
All this is included in the 'Sticky' "Introduction to the use of template guides"
extra. When using a 40mm guide / cutter combination will require the construction of one template to be produced then to remove the second cut with a 30mm guide / cutter combination and then a 16mm guide / cutter combination for a third process of the project. This was explained in the 'Introduction to the use of template guides'

40mm guide vs 1 1/2-1 3/4"?
Is the objective of your 40mm guides to allow clearance of the collet? If so, would the OakPark 1 1/2" bore (1 3/4" flange) provide the same benefits as your 40mm? There are only Oak Park and Lee Valley (that I'm aware of) that make this size.

Routing with Template Tom
Well Mike maybe I should have the last word as I was the one who introduced the 40mm guide to the forum. You know what, I don't care what size of guides you may wish to use, metric or imperial as long as you try and get more from your router with the aid of guides no matter what size they are. You will notice I have not been submitting many posts lately. I have no intention in getting into all the bickering that goes on re Metric and imperial. I admitted recently that I had been using a great number of imperial cutters from my Carb-I-Tool catalogue. The 40mm guide has been taken out of all context. Just use a big Guide and you can do more with your router you will also require all the smaller ones as well. All I ask is Just Do it, Try it, do something, let us see your results as I have still to see a project published recently on the forum where the guides have been used, (outside the table) as I am not familiar with their use in the table simply because I think they were designed to be used in the plunge mode. MHOP
To those who may be new to the forum, and may be wondering where this is going to lead to, I had submitted an article "Introduction to the use of the template Guides" which is still there for anyone to download to try new routing techniques. I reiterate it is only an introduction to the use of the guides and is not really limited to what is presented in the article.
It is a method working with the guides to produce some articles in a safer manner. It is techniques I developed over 25 years ago (contrary to what some may be saying) It was not copied from anyone else as there was nothing available on the market at the time to copy from.
A number of years ago I did coach someone in Russia how to use the guides and this was done by email. That person wanted to make the elliptical boxes I had designed, not so much the box design but the method I had developed to produce it with greater safety awareness.
Should there be any interest in producing an object with the aid of the guides I am willing to do what I did those years ago. It is too bulky to submit by posting to a thread therefore would have to be done by email I can walk you through each step then you can post your achievements as you go along.

Last evening in the "guide bushing" thread I offered a FREE 40mm professionally made template guide suitable for the Makita 3600/3612/3612C to the first member to email me their street address, I'm a little surprised that no one has claimed it. |
A PM to "electron" will send it on it's way.
