Default what bits and what size

what bits (what size) are used in Series one DVD ? My rws table will have a 1 1/2 inch hole, will I still be able to use a lock miter bit ? I want to use a 1/2 bit with a 1/2 shank.

I have posted several times about getting a rws table but I will have one ordered on Feb 3 rd. I look forward to learning how to use it.

Last how do I put where I live in my posts ?
Thank you as always

HI oldfolks

Well sorry to say No,, or I should say, yes and no they do make a very small one that's 1 3/8" OD BUT that's still to big for a 1 1/2" hole it's for 3/8 to 1/2" thick stock... and it's pushing the 1/2" real hard..more like 3/8" to 7/16" thick stock...

You will need to order one more plate with the 3 1/8" hole in it ..to fit your router..

John, it is a good idea to order an extra mounting plate with the large sized hole for your table. This is not something you need to do right away. I am curious about why the locking miter joint is so important to you? There are many joints we can build that offer great strength and good looks. If it is for strength and appearance you can cut a rabbeted miter joint for the same look.

I am interested in making small boxes and mitered corners look good.

That is the exact joint I was speaking of. It will provide the look you are after and can be made much easier and with less expensive bits than a locking miter joint. Thanks BJ!

What's wrong with using a locking miter joint? It's something new to learn. If I had the bit and wood, I would want to use it too.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
