SKILL BUILDER #1: ROUTER

Our first skill builder was a great learning opportunity for me. Having spent most of my life building and learning tools from my father and grandfather I have been exposed to a pretty wide range of tools and methods, but somehow had never used a hand router.

As I started making my first passes I noticed the bit was extra noisy and was locking up at points, so I assumed it was coming loose. This happened a couple of times after stopping to retighten it, so I took the bit out again and cleaned the collet extra hard, which seemed to fix everything.

I am really looking forward to taking the time to do some in depth and intricate projects with this tool.
