1... Hi, I am brand new to using a router and would like some help
2... selecting a bit.
In the picture is a wooden airplane wing. If you look at the close-up,
3... there is 1/4" pine filler strip that I need to route off of the spar.
4... I also included a picture of a jig someone told me I should make to place over the spar.
5... I guess I am only asking about the bit and I will post the jig question in the other forum unless you can answer here.
Thanks in advance.
1... Hi and welcome nameless person... Do you need any help w/ knowing your router..
2... 1st suggestion is a planer bit, next is a mortising bit w/ top bearing..
3... how wide is the filler and how long of cut do you need/wish to make...
I take it you want to go only a ¼'' deep...
4... w/ the top of the spar having a radius a jig my not be the best approach unless you are intending to match the jig to the curvature of the spar..
5... both Q's are fine...
do you have metal fasteners in the filler piece??
what is the white stuff I see..
would cutting from zero inches to ¼'' and back to zero inches work over the length of a cut???
have you considered an electric plane???
