Default Router Table Pin Router

I've just discovered this forum - some great stuff. However, after 15 minutes of searching, I can't find something that must have been done many times.

I have a nice homebuilt router table. I'm looking for a way to attach a pin directly above the bit, so I can put a template above the board and have it follow the pin. Basically an overarm router, except the router is below and the pin is above. The pin needs to retract (spring or hinge) so that I can remove the template/workpiece.

Make sense? Not so easy to explain.

Thanks!

Tim here another idea cut out a full size template install a pattern following bit
that's any bit with the same size bearing on the top of the cutter that's the same size
set your cutter so the bearing is sticking through the table and rides against the pattern you made
attach the wood blank to the top of the template
route away this where one of those new 23 gauge headless pin nailers works great
or put a couple flathead screws in the template that are a 1/8" longer than template have the points of the screw hold your blank in place
or double side tape
Don't take single sticky sided tape and make a loop out of it cause the blank will shift Don't ask How I know this

Hi Watt

That way works great to cut off the out side of the project BUT how do you cut the inside of the project out..if needed ?

make a template that has the shape of your inside cut out attach your blank part
put on the router table where the pin is is in the hole you cut out
turn on the router and lower it in the void to be routed out
move the template with blank attached to where the pin is rubbing against the template cutout
the best style but is a spiral up cut bit

Either with a Template Guide, or an inverted bearing type template bit, the downside to this of course is that you are stuck with having to router to the full depth of the Bit. In any case it can be done.
