Precision Router Edge Guide

About This Item

For use with our Precision Router base and your Dremel Tool to create channels for bindings of any thickness up to 3/8".

A great accessory designed in our shop, for use with our Precision Router Base. Made of machined brass, it mounts beneath the Router Base with two supplied screws. A thumbscrew adjusts the distance of the roller guide from the axis of the cutter bit, and an allen screw locks the adjustment. Cutting height is set and locked on the Router Base.

For best results and clean cuts, we recommend our Binding Router Bit.

We also offer a Complete Router Base Set click here for details.

Useful router accessory

By

Verified Buyer


I am new to building wooden instruments, I have many years of wood working experience. This is a good router gauge for curved wood, such as in laying purfling or binding. I recommend it.

Does the job...barely.

Bought this because I had the dremel. Figured it would be a cost saver. Only buy it if you want to save money. If you want a good job done, do it properly with the correct equipment and leave this thing on the shelf. The dremel is not the ideal tool to rout binding.

Great for trimming ukulele backs and soundboards

I just used this for the first time to trim the back and soundboard on a ukulele. It works just as advertised.

Under engineered

By

Verified Buyer


Would work fine on an acoustic body but anything with a deep cutaway I can't see it working. I am binding a tele style body and the width of the brass mount will not fit inside the cutaway. Also going around a sharp bend as on a Tele lower horn it's impossible to keep both feet of the base in contact with the body. Also it is intended to do up to 3/8" binding but the 3/8" binding I purchased from Stewmacwas a bit oversized, .390" instead of .375 so I had to grind of the screw that mounts the guide wheel.
To me this tool was a first shot at engineering the device and further development is needed.

Hello Howard,
We're sorry our Precision Router Base Edge Guide didn't work for you as you expected. We stand behind our return policy -- if you are not satisfied you may return it anytime for a refund or exchange. In the meantime, I've placed your suggestions with our product development team -- customer comments like yours have been the catalyst to many changes to our products. Please know this tool is not designed to cut a channel that is 3/8" deep. Rather, the Precision Router Edge Guide is intended to cut a maximum channel width up to 3/8". Once again, we are very sorry for this confusion and inconvenience.

Worked great

I used the tool to retop a guitar with John Greven’s method of working inside of the existing binding. The router guide worked superbly. With new router bits and a very careful and slow pace it worked great.

Lack of precision

By

Verified Buyer


Don't waste your money on this. It is impossible to get a decent job using this tool. It is like using free hand routing for a work that requires precision.
