Use of Router Table and Table Accessories
There are three ways to use a router table, and in all cases, a particular accessory is utilized to through the workpiece.
First- This way requires a fence and the router partially emerging from it. The workpiece move against it and the other portion of the router (exposed portion) removes extra material from the piece.
Second- No fence requires here, but a template added with the workpiece and the router bit used along with a ball bearing guide. Here this ball bearing guide bears against the model and the router bit removes the material from the workpiece.
Third- The router table accessories pin router used here. This router had a pin in the table which can trace the part and hung the router motor. An ‘over arm’ is raised from one corner of the router table, arched over the table, and move down straight towards the pin.
When carpenters work on this router table and hand held router they work on average size or workpiece. If the workpiece is colossal, it would be hard to work in a router table. So it has to be routed to a handheld machine. On the other hand, tiny piece of workpiece does not support in the hand-held router; they need to be routed in a router table with push tool and other router table accessories.
