Default Little HELP pt 2

Hi all , thanks for your previuos tips.
I used the high speed , low feed method to trim 1mm of a T section of Aluminium (3mm). BUT!!!!! it started out alright, then around 1/2 way things went pair shaped.
The second half trimmed less than 1mm----no good.
It seems the fences were out of square.
Which leads me to ask-----is there any sort of jig i can buy or construct that can hold the router fixed while i pass the workpiece along, as in a metal lathe moving the cutting tool
Please no CNC's , there way out of my reach.

First thing Geoff is I would suggest you finish filling out your profile so we know what you have to work with and some idea of your experience level.

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.

Geoff when ever you cut anything with a router then your work needs to pass the cutter in a controlled way, so you either clamp the work piece down and move the router along some type of fence or you fix the router down in a router table and you use a controlled feed of the work piece along a fence, if you want to get an exact cut then you have to control the feed and speed, I cannot help better than that, you will have to work this out yourself.
