Might be a job for a Dremel, but don't know how you would guide it straight.

Hi Bob

That's when the Dremel table comes into play , it can be a pain to cut a straight line with it but once it's mounted in the table it's easy job, I use it all the time to cut thin plastic parts true...or to say straight
It's great when you want to just remove a 1/16" or 1/8" and keep it true.
Plus you get small saw blades that work great also and use small router bits in it also.

see snapshot below , just one more way to spend your money, hahahaha but this is a good one.

Clem, to my mind the simplest way to make the groove is to use a straight cutter of the correct size, probably 1/8" on the router table using a tall fence which is a very useful addition to every-ones workshop but don't attempt it in one pass, two or even three with such a small dia. bit. In the photo the material is 1 3/8" with a 5/32" groove. An 1/8" cutter is much cheaper than a slot cutter. Normally in a correct size groove there is no need for glue or pins.

Hi Harry

You may want to check out the SET of slot cutters below and it's real hard to break one unlike the standard 1/8" straight router bit...

Plus you can just move the stock flat on the top of the router table, no need to hold in up in the Ver. and you don't need to used a tall fence.

I use them all the time to split boxes in to two parts.. top and bottom, quick and easy and safe.

There lies the difference between our two countries, the cheapest set containing only four cutters is listed at $AUS79.00. If I could get a set at you're kind of prices I like you Bob wouldn't consider any other way. It's a bit like with Niki in Poland, tools are so expensive that he cleverly improvises using what he has to hand.

Hi, Clem: The moulding you are talking about is known as a "T" moulding in the trade.
You will need a slot cutter as Bob has pointed out. The thickness of the T moulding that gets inserted into th table top will dictate what size bit you need, Slot cutters come it thicknesses from 1/16" to 1/2" . You will have to take a scrap board the same thickness as your top and determine exactly what depth you need to adjust the cutter. If the old table top had radius corners you will probably do the same with the new one. It helps to have a hair dryer and gloves to handle the moulding. You will heat the molding up and it will be much more pliable when making bends but it will be hot to the touch. If I remember right we used a slot cutter of about 1/8th'".
I hope this helps. Woodnut65

Hi Harry

All I can say is he ( Ships to: Worldwide )

That's what's neat about eBay many do.

Note*** if he can't do it, I will do it for you, I will buy them and forward them to you or send you one of the 4 sets I have.

Bob, I have never dealt with Ebay, are they fixed prices or does one have to bid? I would like to buy a set of slot cutters and also a bag of 1/4" dowels, how do I go about it?
