Re: Quest for the perfect hinge mortise router-fou

Plenty of power for a 1/4" bit.

I agree. I have two of these, more or less permanently assigned to dovetails on a Keller jig. I've made quite a few in 3/4" white oak, and while a bigger router might make them faster, I like the control I get wrapping both hands around the motor.

How long the bearings will last doing this, I don't know.
