Glad I bought it. Just not as easy as I thought it would be, but I'll master it soon enough.

Ordered this for my husband for his birthday. He loves it! Took a but of time to make the jig for it. It works with his standard router but he's planning to buy a trim router for it. Love it!

FAQs

Can I modify the base plate to fit my router?

In some instances, NOT ALL holes in the router’s base will match the mounting pattern. Only two diagonal holes matched to a router’s base are required (as a minimum) for proper installation and operation. You may decide to modify an existing slot or add hole(s) to better suit your router. The screws supplied may not fit your router. If you supply your own screws, DO NOT use “countersink” head styles.

Can I create my own stencils for the Pantograph?

It is possible to create your own stencils. This gives you the flexibility of different fonts and different sizes. Please visit the following link for more information on how to accomplish creating your own stencils. 

 

How do I prevent the spread of sawdust when using my router?
