Routers are some of the most versatile and essential power tools in a woodworker's arsenal. Whether you're a contractor, a joiner or a hobbyist, you can achieve a greater level of precision and control over your projects with one of our variable speed plunge routers.
Unlike fixed routers, which must be locked at a set depth before cutting, plunge routers can move their bits up and down while activated, making them ideal for making cuts in the center of a board, such as grooves for inlays, where entering from the side of the piece would result in an unsightly slot. Once the bit has reached the desired depth inside the wood, it can be locked in place to ensure a uniform cut.
While a drill press is often useful for drilling through wood, a plunge router equipped with a bottom cutting straight bit is much better for boring peg holes. Not only does the maneuverability of a plunge router grant more control over where the holes go, but a forstner bit is designed to make a clean, flat-bottomed hole, much better for holding pegs than a hole drilled with a standard bit. Create snug peg joints with the help of our plunge routers.
The on-the-fly adjustability of plunge routers makes them ideal for all sorts of creative applications. Whether you're carving a block of wood or etching letters into a handcrafted sign, our plunge routers combine ease of use and reliability with a high level of control. We also offer router kits to ensure you'll always have the bits you'll need for any job you undertake.
Artisan woodworkers have been devising new uses for the router for many years, and they aren't likely to stop. Benefit from years of innovation and experimentation by investing in a quality plunge router, and see what new ideas you can add.
