Tips & Tricks Issue 90: Precision Plunging

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 90 of Woodcraft Magazine.

I’ve found that the depth gauges on some plunge routers are tricky to read. For the kind of precision needed when routing inlay recesses, for example, I use as a depth gauge a drill bit whose diameter matches my desired depth of cut. With the router bit zeroed out on the workpiece surface, I trap the drill bit between the router’s turret and its adjustable depth rod, and then lock the rod. Remove the drill bit, and go to work, plunging with precision.
