Default Rout edge of circle on the table?

Hi Guys

I need to rout a round over on the edge of a couple of bar stool tops. Can I push these through my router table or do I need to go the hand held route?

The tops are 400mm diameter and 19mm thick.

Thanks.

With a bearing guided round over bit, you should be able to do it on the table.
A starting pin would make it safer, as in this pic, although I don't recommend getting your fingers that close to the cutter.


Might actually be easier ,safer and quicker hand held. Just use some double sided tape to stick it down to the bench and around you go.

Ah thanks for the reply. I just need to check if I can insert a pin in my Triton router table.

Interesting what you say though about it being safer hand held. I always tend to favour the table over my hands because I've always thought it was safer that way (limited to smallish items of course).

Keep well.

Hi Hilton

Some of the Triton router tables have a place for the pin but some don't if not just use a 1/2 Fence, it can be just a simple block of plywood (12" x 18" works well) clamped to the table in two points on the table, and just to right and back a little bit of the router bit just like a pin..but much safer way.

Hi Hilton,
Either way is easy & simple job if bit has bearing.

It could be done without a bearing too. You just have to set the fence depth so that the radius of the circle only fits in just enough to do the roundover.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I find this to be the fastest yet safe method to roundover or fancy edge a disc.
