Woodworkers who prefer to use their routers mounted in a table will love the Leigh RTJ400. Unlike traditional dovetail jigs, the RTJ400 slides along the top of your router table, encouraging a comfortable upright posture, and eliminating the need to balance your router on the top of a narrow jig. It provides fast, accurate routing of through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and box joints. Like other Leigh jigs, the template for the RTJ400 is precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum. Perfect joint fit is guaranteed and repeatable with the patented Leigh elliptical guide bushing. NOTE:Operation requires a 1-3/8'' Porter-Cable style insert ring to fit the Leigh eBush to your router table or router plate. Lets you create 5 sizes of through dovetails, 4 sizes of half-pitch through dovetails, 3 sizes of single pass half-blind dovetails, and 4 sizes of box joints (finger joints)Also capable of routing angled dovetails and end-on-end dovetails (splices), both straight and angledMakes precise joinery easy-just center the board on the template and guide the jig across the router table to rout the jointsOne template makes all three types of joineryIncludes clearly illustrated, step-by-step user guide and a DVD with helpful how-to videos
Create signs and table tops with decorative edging in far less time with this unique router bit mounted in your CNC machine. The innovative dual-purpose bit simultaneously cuts your parts to size and applies an edge profile, meaning there's no need to change bits, or to remove the parts to machine them again on a traditional router table. No bearing guide means longer lifespan, and no marks on the edge of your work piece from gummed up bearings. Note: For best results and longer tool life we recommend slowing the feed rate and making several passes.
PhotoVCarve allows CNC machines to carve and engrave photographic images in a way that used to only be possible with expensive laser marking systems. The software converts photographs and images into high-quality toolpaths for virtually all CNC machines, using lines and grooves that vary in width and depth to represent the detail in an image. PhotoVCarve is also perfect for machining 3D Lithophanes directly from photographs for lasting gifts, keepsakes and mementos. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional engraver, you'll enjoy the simplicity, utility and quick results of PhotoVCarve. V-Groove Machining: Uses grooves of varying width and depth to represent detail. Automatically calculates toolpaths based on cutter selected and maximum depth of groove. Quality of finished result is dependant upon a high level of contrast between material surface and machined grooves.3D Lithophane Machining: Lithophanes are 3D photographs that when viewed in normal lighting look rather flat, but when back lit transform into stunning 3D pictures with depth and detail that cannot be seen in a 2D photograph.3D Grayscale Machining: PhotoVCarve automatically converts a grayscale image into a 3D height map that can then be carved.
Rigidity is a key requirement to ensure accuracy when machining parts on your CNC machine, and this stand more than meets that requirement. Built from heavy, thick-walled square tubing, and held together with sturdy bolts, it resists vibration and deflection like no other. The included heavy-duty casters make it easy to roll across your shop, while adjustable leveling feet ensure stability and a level surface. It even includes a shelf to keep your controller safe and easily accessible.
