Hi all. New to using a router. I'm looking to learn different tips and techniques. Also have a project that would be perfect if I can find te right router bits.

I consider a router the most fun tool in the shop. And welcome aboard. First tip, keep your fingers away from the whirley part. No one can tell you what bits to use unless they know what you want to do.

If you're planning on a router table, I highly recommend making your own. There's a thread showing different router tables people here made, someone should have the link. Doesn't need to be fancy, just to do what YOU want it to do, which is one reason I made mine without using plans. Mine is maybe 10 years old, Gen 4 or 5, and I'd be surprised if I have $10 in it - did buy bolts, nuts, washers.

Nice you could join in the fun. What are you making? Any profile you're trying to make. If you have a picture on your hard drive, you can post it. That would really help.
