CRB7 Router Base
« on: June 14, 2017, 02:32:26 PM »
So woodpeckers is having a 20% off sale on the CRB7 router base. I have been looking for something to do loose tenons on large stuff, like bed rails...

Has anyone used this unit and can speak of its quality and accuracy? Even on-sale it is pricey but if it is good I won't mind.

I cut my bed tenons with a tenon saw or cut the shoulder (stop cut) then chisel/snap the cheek off. It goes fast and no dust. Smooth and fine tune it with a file/rasp. Try it, you can do it. Save yourself some money.   :)
