If you can use a plunge router, you can cut strong, perfectly fitting mortise and tenon joints in no time. Easily rout single, double, twin, quadruple or even triple mortise and tenon joints, plus angled and compound-angled joints, in stock up to 3" x 5". Virtually any plunge router will fit and still be available in seconds for other uses.Nothing provides matching joint halves with the ease and accuracy of the new Leigh FMT! Named one of Workbench Magazine's Top 10 Innovative Tools of 2004, the FMT Jig allows you to rout both parts of the joint with just one joint guide, one router bit and one jig setup. Make perfect joints for everything from match-stick frames and miniature tables (rout joints smaller than 1/4" - so tiny they're almost beyond belief!) to full-size chairs and 6-foot garden gates.It's remarkably easy to set up perfectly aligned multiple mortises and tenons on the FMT. Precision and repeatability are made possible by adjustable table limit stops that control the table's range of motion in both X and Y axes.With each mortise or tenon position sighted and limit stops set, you're ready to rout double, quadruple, or even triple joints with the same ease and precision as a single mortise and tenon.Joint tightness is infinitely adjustable by simply turning a calibrated knob; the fit is recordable and repeatable.Sliding cursor provides easy alignment.Bolts to a board and clamps to a bench.No dedicated router is required!Comes with universal sub-base that attaches to virtually all plunge routers, five 5/16" guides that will make over 20 sizes of mortise and tenon, guide stand, 5/16" spiral upcut cutter with 1/2" shank, two cam-action Speed-Clamps, outrigger bars, adjustable sidestop fence, fully illustrated user guide, screwdrivers, and mounting hardware. The ACMTC Accessory Kit (#39770 - Sold Separately) includes eight 1/4" guides, four 3/8" guides, four 1/2" guides, eight-piece solid carbide spiral upcut bit set, and wood storage box.
If you're building cope-and-stick doors and drawer fronts, our new Rail Coping Sled will be an indispensable helpmate. With its smooth-sliding phenolic base, and sturdy toggle clamp holding your stock firmly against the fence, your rails will travel unwaveringly past the cutter for the cleanest, squarest cuts you can imagine. Particularly with drawer fronts, which sometimes use very narrow rails, the sled prevents parts from dipping in too deep and keeps your hands safely out of harm's way. A sacrificial block can be attached to the fence to prevent endgrain blowout, while an abrasive strip prevents the workpiece from wandering. Unlike many jigs that use the miter slot, our sled uses only the fence as a reference, so there is no need to waste time aligning the miter slot parallel with the fence. In addition, the coping sled has been redesigned so that the reference edge is a separate clear guide rail elevated 2'' above the table, meaning there is no risk of cutting into the sled. New, taller round handles allow a firm, comfortable grip from any angle of approachSmooth-sliding 3/8'' thick phenolic base stays rigid and flat when toggle clamp pressure is appliedToggle clamp features easy, tool-free adjustments and one-handed operationClear, elevated guide runs against fence, offering a large, smooth-running reference edge without having to cut into the sledClear guide runs 2'' above the table, so it works with most router table fences on the market (all Rockler and Bench Dog fences)Sacrificial block is easily replaceable to accommodate different profilesMaximum workpiece dimension is 5'' wide x 1-1/4'' thick
These collet extenders allow you to change router bits from above the table-even without a lift! Even if you have a lift, they still make bit changes easier because you won't have to remove the insert ring. They're also great for custom made router tables with very thick tops, as they provide the additional depth of cut needed for many routing tasks. Use them with our Router Table Spline Jig (59288, sold separately) to achieve full depth of cut when machining dovetail splines.
Use this high-performance 2-3/4" diameter cutter for creating raised panels for doors and wainscoting, as well as decorative tops, plaques and molding. Freud's exclusive Quadra-Cut four-cutter design provides the smoothest cuts possible. You'll get crisp, clean edges every time, even with cross-grain cuts in difficult materials. Quadra-Cutdesign combines two small wings that cut downward to shear the top edge for a splinter-free surface and two large wings that shear upward for the most efficient chip ejection.Use 1/2" height for 5/8" stock. Use 5/8" height for 3/4" stock.Cuts all composite materials, plywoods, hardwoods, and softwoods.Use on table-mounted portable routers.
