...cut precise circles, ellipses and mortises... produces the best results you've ever had.
Medina, MN (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced two new compact router accessories to improve both versatility and precision: the Compact Router Ellipse and Circle Jig and Compact Router Mortise Centering Base.
The new Ellipse and Circle Jig eliminates the excessive math and measuring previously required to mark and rout all round and arcing shapes, and also the steady skill required to follow the markings routing freehand to produce a smoothly machined circle or ellipse.
The Mortise Centering Base does just what its name suggests – it provides a solid base for centering mortises in stock up to 4" thick. Once the base is attached to the compact router, it employs two indexing pins to sandwich the board and center the router, guiding a precisely centered mortise.
"These additions greatly expand what your compact router can do," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of merchandising and proprietary. "Making the setups easy for cutting precise circles, ellipses and mortises will save tons of time, while producing the best results you've ever had."
Compact routers allow many routing projects to be done quickly without the hassle of setting up the operation on a router table. But the selection of accessories to ensure the versatility and precision of compact routing operations has lagged behind the proliferation of the routers themselves, until now. The new Ellipse and Circle Jig and the Mortise Centering Base provide greatly improved functionality.
The Ellipse and Circle Jig is made from durable, smooth-sliding phenolic and fits Bosch, DeWalt and Porter-Cable compact routers. It produces circles from 6-24" in diameter and ellipses from 6" x 11" to 19" x 24". The Mortise Centering Base features a 1/4" thick clear acrylic body with brass pins and rotating nylon guides and is pre-drilled to fit Bosch, DeWalt Porter-Cable compact routers.
The Compact Router Ellipse and Circle Jig (55819) is priced at $69.99 and the Compact Router Mortise Centering Base (57523) is priced at $19.99. Both can be purchased at rockler.com or Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog.
