Re: Collar?

Henry (Raleigh NC)
Not sure if this is what Garth means with a 'router insert' but a collar set into the router plate will work. I personally prefer a bearing on a bit to using a collar because there is no offset to have to consider; that makes the template sizing easier. But it is a workable solution when you can't find the 'right' bit with a collar.

Also if depth of cut works right, you could MAYBE find a collar the same diameter as your bit - eliminating the offset - but that may not be easy for any particular sized bit.
