Default Why rub collars in a table????

Wait, what am I missing?
I've been known to be pretty dense, and that may be the case here. But, I can't figure what a rub collar would be used for in a table. Just for pattern routing?

I have never use guide bushings in a table mounted router....a job that requires guide bushings would be done easier and safer with a handheld router.

My oak park miter jig uses a collar as a guide, so I use that one in a table. I've use a few patters with guides in the table, because you can control the height of the bit without worrying where the bearing is.
I have damaged patterns using bearing guided bits, but not with a collar. There were a lot of projects on the TV show that Bob and Rick used template guides in the table

As always, there is more than one way to do everything in the workshop

Hi

I will 2nd that Bob R. sold me on using guides (collars) on the router table he would say that 90% of routers job can be done on the router and with the guides it's true not to saying about to close that big hole up around the bit on the router table...so to say you don't know what you are missing if you don't use them...

"Discussions solely based on operations that are using the table-mounted router. Bob and Rick say "More than 90% of all operations using the router can be done with the table-mounted router."

I haven't used guide bushings much in my tables, but I do use a set of Whiteside zero clearance rings. Not as easy to change as the Incra inserts, but two sets were thrown in on a deal so the cost was right!!

I have an idea for a circle cutting jig and using a guide bushing to 'centre' the jig on the bit would be ideal.

All I have to do is work out how to do it.

Guide bushings are how you guide jigs on your router table. Your hands are kept safely away from the bit. Sometimes you can do the same job with a bearing guided bit... just be sure to guard your work.

Mike I am happy to see your stack of bottle balancer's as when you set up to make one of anything then you may as well make a hundred of them and what you say about bearing cutters and guide rings is very correct, N

Actually Neville this was helping Barb last year. I just thought the photo was a good explanation.
