Thanks Bob.

For some reason I missed the part about the going "across" the grain. I guess I should've read the directions a little better. After you posted the pics in the other thread, I saw what I was doing wrong. DOH!! LOL

This really IS a wonderful tool, (toy).

Thank you again for the help with it.

Thanks Corey.

Trying to add a pic of the bit set.

For those that have the OP setup such as myself. The 3/4" bull nose bit won't work with the standard OP plate. Thankfully I have the plate from my Raised Panel system. Was just a matter of fastening it to another router and drop in. Also, thankfully I had a fence from an old sears router table, (no longer have the table).

Hi Bob,

No worries from me. I hope others who wish to try their hands at this wonderful tool, enjoys it as much as do.

BTW, my grand dad taught me, if you do something, do it right the first time. Sometimes that's difficult to do but I do try.

Just a thought: It appears that the specialty bit designed for making wooden toy train tracks might be an even better choice for creating wooden hinges. I am speaking about the bit designed for cutting the connecting peg on the end of the track. This bit should give you perfectly round barrels with two vertical passes along the fence.
