Perfect for the fenceless router table.
Woodpeckers Router Table Free Hand Bit Guard
I bought this for use with my Woodpecker router table insert. I primarily do pattern routing, so I have no need for a fence, which means I have no reliable attachment for dust collection. This unit is just the ticket for that and it works very well (see the video above).
It is also meant to take the place of the guide pin, which is does just fine as long as your pattern doesn't have any deep curves. I use it for routing guitar bodies, and the guide gets in the way when I need to get into the cutaway areas of the bodies. Removing one of the attachment bolts allows me to rotate the guide enough to get into the deeper curves without having to completely remove the guard, so it's not really a problem.
The other problem I had was that the height of the guard only allows pieces up to 1.5" thick to pass. Guitar bodies with a template attached are almost always thicker than this, so I used the wood base as a template and made a 3/4" riser from plywood to give me 2.25" clearance. There were even longer mounting bolts included (though not actually for this purpose).
