This equipment is ought to be used with active dust control if you use it for more than 10-15 minutes in total.


Electric hand router. We have several ones; from very light to quite heavy as well as a Router Table.

Be very careful with the collet sizes; we have both Imperial and Metric ones; in 1/4th of an inch; 6mm and 8mm.

Know that 1/4 of an inch is almost 6mm - but not quite. Putting a 6mm bit into a 1/4th of an inch collet or vise versa will absolotely ruin it. And they are expensive and hard to replace (long lead team; 30-60 euro's).

So check that your cutter shank fits absolutely perfectly in the collet; with virtually no wobble even when not yet tightened.
