It is used to perform work on the wood in the manufacture of furniture, plunging the lock or hinges in the wooden door, etc. The use of this tool facilitates much work DIY. However, select the manual cutter - not an easy task, because the modern market offers a huge selection of power models.
Instruction how to choose the manual cutter
In the manual router has two main elements - the engine, and the mill, via which the treated wood surface. Therefore, the parameters of these components are paying special attention to selecting this tool.
All manual routers can be divided into three groups: the edge, top and all season. Lamella tools are designed for the manufacture of the ends of the slots used to connect to the product details. Edge routers are used for chamfering the workpiece, as well as the production of edges.
Lamella and edge routers are highly specialized tool. Upper mill - a universal unit, so it can be used for absolutely any work on wood. upper routers come in two varieties, in turn: fixed and drowned.
Fixed router rigidly mounted on the motor base. When working with this tool milling depth adjustment is done by moving the device up and down. For the novice carpenter would be difficult to carry out his first work with this tool.
Submersible router is an option device, when the engine cutter is movable on guides fixed on the base up and down. Using this tool is convenient because it does not need to be removed from the workpiece during machining parts mill.
An important parameter when choosing a router - its power. On this basis the tool can be differentiated in the light milling (up to 750 W), medium (up to 1200W) and powerful (over 1200 watts). It considered: the more powerful tool, so it is more professional.
Attention should be paid and this parameter is possible to adjust the speed. This function is very useful because it gives an opportunity to choose the best power tool operation. Typically, the number of turns in milling ranges from 6 to 24 thousand.
Not less important parameters such as the diameter of the hand router (for professional models, this rate can be up to 12 mm) and the material processing depth (in life, usually used depth up to 30 mm, in the manufacture of professional models - 60 mm).
An important aspect when choosing a router - the presence of power softstarter. This feature will provide an opportunity to preserve the workpiece from damage and to protect the wiring.
