Binding Router Guide

About This Item

Great for archtop instruments! Works where a standard router base can't. Fits Dremel and Black & Decker rotary tools. Router bit sold separately.

This versatile attachment was designed by our own Don MacRostie, it screws onto the Dremel tool, and its thumbscrew-adjustable edge guide lets you cut an accurate ledge for any binding thickness up to .220".

Made of precision-machined aluminum and brass, it's great for routing the edges of archtop instruments, where a standard router base won't work. It installs easily on Dremel MultiPro™ or Professional rotary tools (and Black & Decker Wizard™/RTX™ tools), replacing the threaded plastic collar on the tool housing (fits 12 threads per inch).

Designed to be used with 5/16" diameter carbide-tipped Binding Router Bit.

This tool is exactly as advertised. I'm sure the designer can make flawless cuts, but the novice (me) will have problems. I bought several bits with the tool, and wore one out practicing on scrap wood. I am glad I spent a lot of practice time, because until you get a feel for it, this tool is very tricky. I have not experienced any problems with failing parts, but I only have a few hours of use on it. Overall I think it seems well-built.

Run out was still a problem even after I thought I had it figured out. The best advice I have read in these reviews is to go SLOW.

Bottom line is this tool will do the job, with patience. I plan to build more than one instrument, so I am going to go ahead and drop the cash for a pricier router set-up. I am chalking this one up to the learning curve, but I don't want to give the tool a negative review since it really is as-advertised. If you are on a tight budget, and you're handy with tools, and you have lots of patience and are willing to spend some time getting a feel for how this thing works, you will probably be OK.
