Hi

My name is Tony and I have just logged on to Router Forums for the first time. I have been looking for a site like this for sometime, perhaps now my search has ended! I have been in the construction industry spanning the last 30 years . However, my carpentry experience has been limited to that of second fix carpentry, here in the UK that means fitting skirting boards, architraves, stairs, hanging doors, fitting locks etc. I am now taking a more serious approach to woodworking and have just been introduced to the router and I have brought two - one plunge router and one table mounted which brings me to my question. I overheard someone talking of overhead routing, held in a drill press. Could anyone shed any light on this?

Thank you for bearing with me and I hope to hear from you in the near future.

Tony

Welcome to the forum Tony. Not sure about routing using a drill press, there are overheads using sleds for milling etc. Maybe one of the more experienced guys will have heard of something. Anyway, enjoy!

Hi Tony

That's a new one for me, drill press holding a router hummmm..
They do make a pin router setup that's to say the router is mounted from a fixture that hangs over a work table and can move to the X and Y and up and down.

Or sometimes under the a router table with a pin in a radio arm setup.

Most drill press machines are not that true until you get into the high end drill press equipment /commercial press.
