I am very new to routers and sign making. I recently bought the Makita RT071C just for making signs and have made some crude tests using a 1/4-inch straight bit that I already had from my fathers old Sears router. The most difficult part of trying this has been the lack of enough light to see what I am doing. Flashlight in one hand, router in the other hand. This isn’t as easy as it looks. The easiest for me so far is just to sketch the letters on the wood with a pencil. Controlling the router without enough light isn’t easy. I have heard about the Rockler Interlock Sign Maker's Templates - State Park Font Kits and those look promising when I want exact letters. I’ve not seen these mentioned on this forum at all...yet. Does anyone here use them and what kind of bit works the best with these templates?
