Default Radius Jig

I found this demonstration video. I was wondering. Are they doing a climb cut with this jig? Is this a dangerous maneuver?

Dangerous? In my view, yes.
An unclamped part, fed climb or anti-climb, is dangerous business whilst templet routed.

Maybe I'm missing something, I'm left handed and am mildly dyslexic but that pic doesn't look like a climb cut. The bit rotation is turning into the corner and the item is rotating from R-L. The chip remaining on the oak is to the left of the bit.

Never bite the hand that looks dirty!

Yes, I don't think it's a climb cut, but the way he's starting is pretty dangerous in my opinion. Just pushing into the corner like that is an invitation for the wood to be pulled out of his hand. If nothing else, he should be coming into the bearing where the jig is even with the wood, once the bearing is riding on the jig, THEN moving the work piece towards the corner.

The jigs are a nice idea but too small to be safe in my book. Like Pat said the jig should be clamped to the work piece.

I have to agree. It would put my fingers closer to the bit than I care for.

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.

Good find John. Was noticing this video was posted in 2011.. Strange that we've never heard of this before now. And you're right... almost $300 for the set!!
