To WIN ULTIMATE ROUTER JIG head over to //youtu.be/6rYWWrGOfKI and comment on the video. Winners will be announced during a live show tomorrow. I know I don't know everything there is about routers so please let me know you tips and tricks here in the comments. (P.S. I know I suck at saying collet sizes. What you need to know is the big routers have 1/2 inch collets and the smaller ones have 1/4" collets.)

Stuff and Things Workshop says:

Killer advice on routers and bits! Keep it up your videos just keep getting better!

Colin Hawkins says:

Good timing on this. I just bought my first router (a smaller fixed base DeWalt) and have been gathering info on how to safely use it. Thanks for helping me be more prepared.

Steve Day says:

Liked & subscribed, very informative video

Dustin Penner says:

Possibly the best router skill videos I’ve ever seen. Great advice and a totally agree about buying cheap bits first!

Evan Dunville says:

I pretty much agree with everything you have said in this video.

Walter Rider says:

thank you . great info for me

Samuel Roberts says:

Great video

Dimensionswoodworks says:

You didn’t go over cutting dovetails with the router 🤦🏻‍♂️.

😂😂😂

good job buddy!

And P.S. i use non bearing guide straight bits all the time freehand for power carving…

Mike alan Templeton says:

Great video my friend. Keep up the great work and always stay safe!

Efrain Carrillo says:

Very informative! Thank you.

Dave Calabretta says:

Lots of good info in this video, Thanks. One other thing I ALWAYS look for in a router is a TRIGGER switch. On/off switches on hand held routers can be dangerous. (IMHO) If for any reason, you should loose control of the router or get it caught in a piece of clothing, getting to that switch will be almost impossible. On the other hand, a trigger switch will shut the router down immediately. A router table is a whole different ball game. Thanks again for sharing your talent.

Franks DIY says:

Great Tips and tricks. Routers can be very dangerous if not used properly. Be safe

Steve Hayes says:

Harvey Polglase says:

awesome video.. looking to buy me a router very soon 🙂

Deluxe1221 says:

Great video, would love if you made a video on when to use the certain bits. Like why would I use a 45 degree but instead of using the table saw.

Tom Lagatol says:

Good tips…Great review…Enjoyed the vid, thanks!

Richard Rider says:

Great video. Learned alot…cheers…rr
