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.
