Greetings to all lovers of homemade products and those who just looked at the site in search of interesting ideas. Today I will tell you how one YouTube channel author made a simple attachment with which you can cut out videos. I am sure this homemade product will come in handy for those who are fond of carpentry and those who have a hand router. But I recommend the others not to pass by, but still read the article and watch the author's video below, what if you decide to purchase such a tool in the near future. At the beginning of the article, I will not list the materials and tools that the author used, the way things go, and so everything will be clear. In general, I'm getting started, and I wish you a pleasant reading and viewing.
* a piece of plywood, thickness about 12-14 mm,
* trimming of wood (ships on color and pattern, it is most likely beech),
* wing screw,
* countersunk furniture nut,
* glue for wood.
* drilling machine,
* grinding machine,
* manual router,
* band saw,
* cutters with a diameter of 6 and 20 mm,
* bit bit for wood with a diameter of 64 mm,
* a marking tool.
First of all, the author started preparing the base. I took a sheet of plywood about 15 mm thick and cut a 36×11 cm rectangle out of it using a circular saw. Its width should be equal to the width of the tool sole. We select the length at our discretion.
Then the author clamped the workpiece in a vice, set the router flush on the edge, and drilled a hole. Then, having installed a crown bit with a diameter of 64 mm on the drilling machine, I determined the contour of the hole. As you already understood, the diameter of the nozzle is matched to the inner diameter of the tool sole.
Next, the author again clamped the piece of wood in a vice. I installed a milling cutter with a 6 mm cutter on it and chose a through groove for almost the entire length in several passes. Then he turned the workpiece over with a different plane, changed the 6 mm cutter by 20 mm in the milling cutter and chose a groove of the same length, but already to a depth of 10 mm. Also in several passes.
At this stage, the author has finally drilled out the started hole.
As a result, he got this detail.
The author installed a router on it and outlined the contours of the sole. Then I cut the butt off along the line on the band saw.
Having done the markup from the other side , the author also cut off the excess on the band saw. All the edges of the part were processed on a belt sander. On it, the butt is rounded. The base is ready.
Now it is necessary to make a stop-retainer for the tool, more precisely, for its sole. To do this, the author needed two studs with a diameter of 8 mm and a length of 70 mm.
The author installed them in the holes on the sole of the router and clamped them. I measured the distance between them with a caliper. Then I installed the router on a piece of wood of a suitable size. Again, using a vernier caliper, I measured the distance between the pins and the surface of the piece of wood, additionally I applied markings on the latter – I traced the contour of the sole. On the edge of the wooden blank I put marks for the holes, taking into account the distance between the pins, I drilled them. Then I cut out the excess along the contour.
The author glued studs into the resulting part using two-component epoxy glue. Then he processed the part on a grinding machine and coated it with oil.
The author fixed the finished stop-retainer to the instrument through the pins. He smeared it with glue from below and, without removing it from the tool, installed it on the base. He leveled everything with a square and fixed it with clamps until the glue completely set. After removing the router, and from below the place where the force is connected with screws, having previously drilled holes for them.
Now you need to make a clamp so that you can fix the fixture in the desired position. I hope you understand what I mean, if not, then everything will be clear. The author takes a block 20 mm wide, it should fit tightly, but not tightly into the groove and move freely in it. It processes its ends on a grinding machine.
Then, along the edges, it marks and drills one hole with a diameter of 9 mm, the other with a diameter of 6 mm. The author screwed a furniture countersunk nut into the larger hole. Since she performed on the other side, she had to be undermined. I glued a pin into the second hole (6 mm in diameter) so that it protrudes from below.
Then I installed the part in the groove and fixed it from above with a thumbscrew. That's basically all, the device is ready. It's high time to try it, which it actually does.
He takes a workpiece and drills a hole in it. Installs the nozzle on it the router. Mills a small hole first. Then it offsets the tool and mills the larger circle. The result is two grooves. Next, the author selects the superfluous in the center and takes out a finished video into which you can insert a bearing.
Thus, it is possible to produce rollers of various diameters, more precisely, as long as the length of the shank allows. But I think this length is quite enough. That's all for me, below, as the video promised.
