keep the videos coming. Some really good info.
Another nice video. Did you use the router to cut the housing or did you chisel it out? I saw you using the little speed square for your router guide to clean up the edge - nice! Somewhere I saw a monster speed square (might have been HF) that would allow you to do the full width. Did you ever think of making your own oversize (wooden) speed square for that task?
For my joist pockets, I'll probably make a frame template, place that on the beams an just route it out.
I learned on thing when I read the router handbook. The end of the bit shank, just before the cutter has a radius cut to it. If the collet is tightened down on the radius the bit can easily come loose and fall out. To prevent that from happening the author suggested to add a black rubber o-ring around the shank. Slide it all the way up to the cutter, and it will not go all the way up as the radius forces it back down. You insert the bit until the o-ring touches the collet and then you tighten it up. This prevents the bit from being tightened up in the wrong spot.I put o-rings on all my router bits.Jim Rogers
