Default Starting Pin

I have just found the starting pin with it's plastic bearing. I would prefer something a little better. Including dust extraction at source. I have seen 2 of Bobs devices in his gallery, there have been some developments to the Plexiglas top. Why Bob, can you fill us in? I have seen a tool box on http://www.stots.com/product/dsam.htm
that does everything, quite interesting, but not for me. I have looked at the designs in Spielman and Hylton's books. What devices can forum members come up with?

I have just this minute found the Woodpecker device on Google images. It looks really good. I could make a second ply base to lift it up for guitar body routing. Have you any tips for using it TwoSkies?

Mike,,

fix an elbow on the dust port just to keep things out of the way. the thing sits nice and high, right out of th box, but can easily be adapted. For the money, I don't think you can beat it..

Having just seen the drawing again after a few hours, and with the thought of elbow, elbow going round in my mind. I may move the dust port nearer the front. And there again, looking at the Woodpecker device...maybe not!. Opinions and views please.

HI Mike

Here's a shot of the one I like to use,this one is open in a small way so it can be used for many jobs,but it has the starter pin setup and the vac.pickup as well I have added a 90 deg.tube that lets the hose hook up a bit essayer and out of the way..

If the plastic bit cover is over the bit it will stop you from using it many ways so to say it should be back just a little bit..

I should note ,on the out board side of the pin setup it should be almost open so it can be used for panels,etc. sometimes you need to walk around the bit with the stock ,but still keep control..and a way to pull the chips and out of your view..
The one knob can be unscrewed and it can swing out of the way after you are on the stock
but still suck up the chips ..

======

Thanks for the photos and the pointers. Polished and working model now installed. I will make a bigger handle to screw it into the router plate, and inlay some rubber pads in the base to enhance the grip, so it will not slip, just like I did on the featherboard jig I made last week.

Very nice Mike , good job

But I would say you need to knock off the left side of the fixture,,you only need one point for the starter pin and the left hand side will be in the way, but you will only find that out when you hit it with the stock...i.e. on a inside curve or a right angle....on the stock..

Thanks Bob. I could cut off the left wing in line with the Lexan.
