Thanks derek

Neat but I think I will pass on that one I just don't like my fingers that close to a router bit but I can't wait until you find out how safe it can be done with the ski jig or the Crfatsman router crafter.

I just found, the other day this little jig that I used some time ago to put corner flutes into some posts on a clock, this in a larger version can also be used on table legs etc, very simple to make and very easy to use, see attached pics.

Hi Charles

It just looks like he putting his hand into the hopper of a meat grinder to me, things can happen so fast with a router ,why push it. :( and you know I love jigs but safe ones ...

You too can have a Craftsman Router Crafter for about 25.oo to 50.oo dollars ,(now and than)off the eBay web site, after all if you are going to do it, do it safe as you can..

I agree Harry. Just use a center finding head to mark a line through center of your dowel and then mark the angles you want on the end plate of the jig starting from a point equal to the radius of the dowel. Really simple. Not sure why Bob would be worried about his fingers. There is a substantial piece of wood between the bit and your hand. Besides, it would be easy to make a handheld hold down. Also, not everybody has a Craftsman Router Crafter. However, everybody has scrap in their shop.
