Hi there, my name is Ray I’m from Nottingham UK and have just entered the realms of wood routing so I joined this forum in the hope of getting some handy tips from those more experienced in the art of taming the beast.

Welcome to the forum, Ray!

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. What sort of woodworking are you planning or doing with that router?

Hey, Ray; welcome! Quite a few UK members here at the Forum, which means you get buying info that actually is helpful (to you).
The dominant population here is from the US so a lot of product info, while drool worthy, isn't relevant to yourself.

I'm not sure how this relates to the profile photo but maybe it does -

Here are some photo posting tips if you’re taking photos with your phone or iPad – the best way for proper orientation is to shoot landscape (widescreen). Rotate your phone or iPad CCW for proper orientation. If you want your photos to be portrait then open the photo in a viewer on your computer, rotate it to the orientation you want, then save it in that orientation. It will be correct when you upload it to the servers here. If you’re shooting video please shoot widescreen like our monitors, not portrait.

The best way to post photos in line with your text is to use Go Advanced below the Quick Reply window. If you’re starting a new thread then you’re automatically in the Advanced editor. Click on the Paper Clip on the ribbon bar and that will bring up a dialogue box where you can browse to your photos. Upload them and then put your cursor where you want a photo, hit the dropdown beside the Paper Clip, and choose the photo you want inserted. If you have several photos and just want them at the end of your text then put your cursor at the end and hit the Insert All on the dropdown list of photos.

Always post a photo rather than a link; most folks won't click on a link. It's not uncommon for a post to have 50+ views but the photos less than 5, so that means nobody is looking at what you want them to see.
