Well it is time to be thinking about the next email router tip.

I thought maybe this time we ask the forum for ideas for the September email tip. Need some ideas before Friday so does anyone have an idea for a topic? I have two ideas so far from the forum:

1) Feature profiles of different router bits (this one can be ongoing biweekly)
2) Projects for beginners

Here's one..

One thing that I see coming up a lot, in different forums is a 'How To" for cutting a mounting plate into a table. I have your video from the PC890 series I purchased (thanks - great video), but others could benefit from a step by step.

Anything on dovetails or lettering would be of interest to me!

Thanks!

Why not a few tips on how to use the template guides as many readers would not use the guides

Hi all

I agree with jdoolitt. A step by step a 'How To" for cutting a mounting plate into a table would be a good topic. This is especially so since I am right in the middle of building myself a new router table at the moment. I didn't do a great job of routing in the mounting plate on my old table and would welcome any hints or tips on how to do it properly.

Cheers

Jig for mortise and tenons

I am a regular watcher of your router Workshop programme and saw, last Sunday a jig to cut mortises. Is there a plan available for the jig that had bearings added to the underside of the baseplate of the router. I can see the way to make the outside runners for the router,but the details for securing the wood to be mortised, and the way to secure the centre line inside the supports for the router were not at all obvious on the programme. By the way, the programme being broadcast was the making of a gate-leg table
