What hp router is best to make cabinet raised doors


I used to use a Ryobi 2.5 hp and it worked fine but if you are concerned go higher hp. It's probably more important that the router is a variable speed model. The bigger the size of cutter required for raised panel doors the more torque and revs are produced. You need to ensure starting on slowest speed and adjust up to speed required. Speed should be based on size of cutter and to me is set by sound( a nice hum, not screaming) and vibration( NO VIBRATION)! The cut needs to be done in several passes, maintaining constant feed speed,( don't burn your expensive cutter) allowing cutter and machine to do work maintaining the hum and no vibration. And of course set your guards etc!! If this is on going work for you perhaps look into a spindle moulder with attachment to take router cutters

When the router is at slower speeds, I can stop the motor when pushing wood through a bit. when I back off, the motor starts up again. Is this normal or do I have a problem with the router.


Is it a variable speed? Routers only cut at high speed, wood anyway, if it is variable speed, They must think you will be cutting something soft, I don't know, But they are like a dentist's drill, when they slow down, they don't cut, Keep that thing on high and make some dust, it should not bog down, If it does, check the brushes, if it still does, it has lost it's power and is basically shot. get a new one. Hope this helps.

I have a brand new Ryobi router model ERT241200. Am I supposed to insert the 1/4'' collet into the cavity where the collet nut is, then insert the bit into the collet and tighten the collet nut? I thought...


Do you have the collet upside down? It should fit in nicely and the lock nut fit over the top, no problem, If it doesn't, something is wrong. They only make 2 sizes of collets for router bits, 1/4 and 1/2 , if they get their parts from somebody who makes just collets, you could have easily gotten a different size in there. See if a router bit will fit the hole, then go to the store where you bought the router and ask them to try it in your router and see if it fits, they might have collets on the shelf. Check it out.

How do i change the bit on router?


On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

How does one change from one collet size to another size. My Freud router came with the 1/2" collet installed and I need to change to the 1/4" size supplied with the router to fit a bit I want to use....


I just did this on my black and decker router. You need to unscrew the nut that holds the collet and remove it altogether. Then slip out the collet in there and replace it with the new size. Take care to notice how it goes in when you take the old one out. Then rescrew the nut that holds it in place and tighten. My router had three collets and only one of them works for each size, so if it doesn't tighten properly, it may be the wrong size. Good luck.

Dear Sir I am looking for a step by step instruction booklet for the use of fred carbide router bits door system model 94-100 Paul


Hi,
The bit set you're   is for the purpose of making cabinet doors, cabinet pulls and door pulls.  It's a great little system from a good company. Unfortunately, it's intended to be used by people who have routed before.  I don't know what your experience level is  this stuff but you have several different types of bits there.  You're not going to find step by step instruction on this kit, but what you can find is instructions for the different "type" of bits.  For example, the kit includes a 99-510, which is a raided panel bit.  Do a search for that.  Freud won't give a step by step on that kit, but the styles (not stiles) they offer are universal.  Also, here's 2 good resources.  A picture's worth a thousand words and I think some of the illustrations will help.  Remember, test your cuts on scrap stock, don't waste the good material.  Happy routing  http://www.newwoodworker.com/bldraspnldors.html

I need help on how to replace bit on router craftsman style


You didn't state the model number. The older Craftsmen routers had a red lever lock on the top of the router, one position allows the spindle to turn, the other position locks the spindle. Here's the instruction for the older style routers:

  1. Unplug the tool.
  2. To lock the spindle press the red button in and slide it to the locked position.
  3. Unlock the height adjustment knob.
  4. Raise the router motor using the height adjustment collar until you can get a wrench onto the collet nut.
  5. Loosen the nut until it turns freely.
  6. The bit may still be locked in the spindle, tap it gently (not on the blade!).
  7. The bit will come loose in the spindle and can be removed.
  8. Replace the bit, tighten the nut snug but don't use excessive force.
  9. Unlock the spindle, returning the red lever/button to the free position.
  10. Adjust the height of the bit as you wish, then lock down the motor using the locking knob.

Different Bit shanks


Those with larger bit shanks can hold larger blades. For large joinery cuts, buy a router with a large bit-shank diameter.
