Default Setting up a 25444 router table

I have a Sears 25444 router table.

What is the best ways to set up the depth of cut? There are two adjustable wood faced guides.

What I want to do is to use the router as a jointer.

Thanks for the help.

TheCaptain, uploaded the manual for the 25444 and it details how to set up for jointing.
I can't share the exact URL 'cause I don't have 10 posts but you can find it by checking any post he has and clicking on the "View TheCaptain's Uploads" under his name.
You'd think they'd have an easily accessed manuals area on the forum. :/

Good Luck.

We have two easily accessed sections of the forums devoted to manuals and parts lists. The first is the Router Reference section and the second is the Power Tool Manuals section. Both are displayed on our home page with sub forums for each popular brand.

Generally, when the 'depth of cut' that an electric router mounted in a router table is being discussed, the depth being measured is the distance from the tip of the bit to the surface of the table the workpiece is being guided across.

In a 'jointing' style cut, this is not the case. Here the depth of cut is not set by how much of the bit is above the table. It is regulated by the relationship between the position of the in-feed fence, the position of the out-feed fence and the position of the outside edge of the spinning bit.

I only bring this up because focusing on 'depth of cut' instructions written for operations other than jointing are likely to be discussing how far the bit extends above the table (or below the router base in the case of freehand or ski routing).

Routers are so flexible in the number of different things they can do, they invite 'terminology confusion'.
