Router Demonstration

A router is used to rout out (hollow out) a piece of wood.

Technician will set up the Router –

  • Set the height
  • Set the Blade (variations of blades are kept in the cabinet above)
  • Set the blade fence/ guard down for safety
  • Set the clamps in place to hold base wood
  • Turn on the ventilation system (removes dust)
  • Finally turn the power on

The router is now ready to use.

Points to consider –

  • It is always better to use a larger piece of wood as you have more control. Small pieces are difficult to use and there is more risk of you getting hurt.
  • Check the direction of the blade, this will deturmine which direction to move the wood in.
