Routers are versatile power tools that help with everything from finishing edges to shaping snug joints. Add a professional touch to your fine woodworking projects with one of our high quality fixed routers.
In a fixed router, the bit protrudes through a metal base. The height of the base is adjustable for a deeper or shallower cut, unlike a plunge router, which allows the bit to move up and down through the face plate. Once adjusted, the bit of a fixed router stays at a set depth for the entire cut, eliminating any worry of an uneven cut. This makes them perfect for any cut that will go from one edge of a piece of wood to another, such as a dado or a chamfer.
When chiseling dovetails by hand, imperfections are inevitable. Joints made with the help of one of these compact routers, on the other hand, are guaranteed to be snug and uniform. By cutting all joints using a standardized bit, you can ensure that every notch and groove will fit snugly. If you're planning to do a lot of fine joinery, our router kits are ideal for making sure you always have the bit you need for the joint you want.
Our variable speed routers are also ideal for shaping molding and edges. With so many bits available, it's easy to achieve the exact profile you want. Most fixed base routers come with slow start engines, making them easier to hold onto as they power up to full speed. You can even mount your router in a specially designed table to increase its stability and ease of use.
A good router can make the difference between a professional woodworker and an enthusiastic amateur. When purchasing a fixed base router, think ahead and consider what bits you will need to get the most out of your tool.
