Like the first time I used a kitchen scale for mixing epoxy... I couldn't believe that I hadn't been using one all along.
This router is amazing.
After just a few passes, practicing on an old 2x4 scrap & learning how to use the depth adjustment, I was ready to work on my mahogany dashboard.
|First time around, with a Bosch 3/8" round-over bit. I couldn't believe it was that easy.|
|The next day, I bought a 3/8" rabbeting bit (also Bosch). Again, just a few minutes practicing on a 2x4 scrap, and I cut this recess in the back of my dash beam. This is where the inlay for the instrument cluster will fit.|
|Once again, I printed out my design template and transferred it onto the plywood.|
|After a little sanding, the plywood template fit into the rabbet beautifully.|
|Once I had drilled out the hole centers with a 1" spade bit, I was ready to cut the 3-3/8" hole for the tachometer.|
