Routers

Ferm FBF-1050E.JPG
Synonyms: plunge routers, handheld routers;
DE: Oberfräsen, Handoberfräsmaschinen
Type: power tool
Material: wood
Used with: router bits
Access Requirements: handheld router introduction
Tutors: Lukas, Martin
Similar (More or Less): CNC router, router plane; milling table, CNC mill


A router is basically a powerful motor spinning a sharp metal bit at high speeds. Read the manual before using and be aware of the difference between the regular "push" and the more dangerous "climb" cut!

Safety

Routers are very dangerous tools, make sure you have received the handheld router introduction in person and take time to think about what you are going to do!

Router Bits

(main article: Router Bits)

Router bits can get quite expensive, but good quality ones can be sharpened when they become dull.

Typical collet (Spannzangen) sizes are 6 and 8 mm.
A simple shared set of 8 mm router bits is available in the wood workshop. As always, report when broken and replace them accordingly.


Copying Rings

Copying rings can be used for template work and are more versatile (although a bit more complicated) than flush trim bits with a ball bearing that takes care of the copying. When working with a copying ring, the template has to be offset from the target shape by a few millimeters: offset = (outer coyping ring diameter - bit diameter)/2 [1]

Location: chop saw station

We were given a Bosch POF 1200 AE that works very well except that it can't be moved up very far at the moment.

Not many accessories are included, though.

Router Table.JPG
Location: router table
Access Requirements: handheld router introduction
Manual: ferm.com
Tutors: Lukas, Martin


Martin brought a router which is attached to the router table.

We currently have 6 and 8 mm collets for it (an extra 8 mm one is in the storage room along with replacement carbon brushes).

The depth setting screw is very useful for fine adjustments, but when it is loose and the router is mounted upside down it can fall out because of the vibrations. Therefore, this screw should be used to hold the router in position under the router table instead of the clamping lever on the back. Unfortunately, one of the falls seems to have broken the handle off the screw, both parts are currently in the box with broken equipment on the ladder shelf.

Repairs & Upgrades

Watch out! This tool has been repaired for now, but may suffer another defect in the near future. If anything looks, feels or sounds wrong to you, do not use it and immediately talk to a tutor or manager!

  • 2018-11-25 (after approx. 5 uses of the router table; ask Lukas for more details)
    • cast metal "collar" discovered to be broken in several places, spindle locking button put back in position with a zip tie (epoxied to the collar so it can't slip off)
    • cut a longer thread into the depth setting screw so it can be tightened in any router position
  • 2019-3-27
    • previous hack broken a few days before as reported in issue #105
    • locking collar removed, 14 mm wrench added to the router table for locking
