Sometimes called a starter pin or guide pin, these Router Table Fulcrum Pins function as stable guides when routing curved profiles without a fence. When routing inside curves, for example, it becomes impossible to use a straight fence for stability, so a guide pin is used. Fulcrum pins are most commonly used with bearing guided router bits, so that the bearing and fulcrum pin form two points in a line for stability. More than one pin can be used for more versatility and more complicated profiles. These fulcrum pins are pre-threaded to fit Rockler Router Table Plates and Bench Dog Router Table Plates.Technical Details:These Router Table Fulcrum Pins feature solid metal construction for a solid connection and long life.1/4 - 20 threading fits Rockler and Bench Dog Router Table Plates with no modification.Fulcrum Pins measure approximately 1/2" in diameter x 3/4" long.

This handy Router Storage Cabinet solves the problem of not only storing routers, but also of organizing all your bits and accessories. The interior dimensions will store both a full-size plunge router and a standard-size router. Bits and accessories fit in the two drawers. The door back is a good place to hang the edge guide. The storage cabinet can either sit on a flat surface or be wall-mounted.
With a plunge router, this workhorse router table will handle just about all of your joinery needs. The special jig adapts a portable router, preferably a plunge router, for use as a stationary tool. It does not negate the use of the machine in conventional fashion but there are times when accuracy is easier to achieve and it is more convenient to apply the work to the tool instead of the tool to the work. It's also true that even under normal conditions, router applications require extra attention for support and guidance. This "master" jig, in a sense, supplies a host of work setups in one compact package.
This breadbox is an ideal project to get started on because it is made with a variety of the most common shop tools and equipment, from the table saw to the router. Perhaps best of all, there are no fussy joints to cut. The basic box can be made with almost any simple construction method, from dowels to screws and plugs or even biscuits, if you own a biscuit joiner.
When it comes to utility, few projects can equal the multi-functional capacity of the hutch. In the living room, dining room, or family room, no piece better combines ample storage space with a generous display area. Although we tend to think of large projects as being complex and difficult to build, the design of this hutch is probably as elemental as a large piece can get. Excepting the 1/4-in. plywood for the base section back and the drawer bottoms, all the board stock is just 3/4-in thick no. 2 pine. Perhaps best of all, you don't need a shop full of costly equipment to build this project. When the author built the hutch, all he had was a Shopsmith multitool, though a router would also been helpful. Most of the work was accomplished using just the table saw; the Shopsmith scroll saw attachment was used to cut the classic whale-tail scroll profile in the upper section sides. A thickness planer isn't required. Unlike much large casework, if you aren't rich in clamps, you can still build this project. By purchasing pre-glued wide pine you won't need the array of pipe or bar clamps that edge-gluing work typically requires. And since parts are assembled with finish nails and screws, clamps aren't needed for the case and upper section assembly.
This router table serves several purposes. Yes, it's a good all-around basic router table, but in making this table, you coincidentally learn most of the basics employed in case/face-frame/panel door construction. Finally, even if you now have one of the inexpensive commercial bench-top router tables, making this table will give you a serious shop tool, capable of turning out work every bit as fine as in professional shops.
Nearly every woodworker, no matter what their expertise, dreams of making some "classic" woodworking project. A traditional slant-front desk is one such project. We wouldn't suggest that you undertake this piece if you've never made a door or drawer, but if you've never made a piece this large, don't be scared off. The desk is basically just a box, with some drawers, a pigeonhole section, a slant front and bracket feet. If your shop is equipped with the basics - table saw, band saw, jointer, planer, router, and a good selection of clamps - then you should have no problem making the desk.
