Using My Dual Tilting Router Table Fence / Utilisation de mon guide double inclinaison

Cet article fait suite à la publication de mon guide double inclinaison pour table à toupie (défonceuse)

This article follows the one publish for my Dual Tilting Router Table Fence.


Je commence par fabriquer un petit gabarit de carton qui me servira de fenêtre pour localiser des profils intéressants de mes fraises. En pivotant le gabarit je verrai tous les profils possibles.

Je devrai en fabriquer un pour chaque épaisseur de planche que je vais utiliser, ici 3/4″ (18mm).

I’m starting by making a small cardboard jig which will provide a window to locate interesting profiles from my router bits. Pivoting the jig will allow me to see all possible profiles.

I will have to make one for each stock thickness I will use, here 3/4″ (18mm).

Voici deux exemples avec cette fraise ronde de 1″ (25mm). Le profil recherché est toujours celui en arrière plan, le plus foncé, raison pour laquelle j’ai utilisé du carton pâle.

Here are two samples from this 1″ (25mm) round nose bit. The profile I’m after is always the one on the background, the dark one, reason why I used pale cardboard.

J’installé la fraise ronde dans la table de toupie et j’incliné le guide pour obtenir le profil montré.

I’ve installed the round nose bit in the router table and I tilted the fence to get the shown profile.

Puisque je n’apprécie pas cette pointe fine, je déplace le guide et j’ajuste la hauteur de la fraise pour faire une seconde passe.

Since I don’t like this sharp tip, I move the fence and I set the height of the bit to make a second pass.

Un troisième ajustement et une troisième passe pour un profil plus attrayant.

Je suis en affaire !

A third adjustment and a third pass for a more attractive profile.

I’m in business !

Voici une doucine romaine pour réaliser une moulure.

Here is a roman ogee to mill a molding.

En pivotant le gabarit je peux trouver le profil désiré.

By pivoting the jig I’m able to find the desired profile.

J’utilise ce gabarit pour temporairement retirer le roulement à billes, celui-ci étant une nuisance pour la coupe (celui de la fraise montée auparavant était coincé).

I’m using this jig to temporarily remove the bearing, which is a nuisance for the cut (the one on the previously shown bit was jammed).

J’ai du changé de table à toupie, l’ouverture de l’autre étant trop petite pour cette fraise.

I had to change router table, the opening on the other being too narrow for this bit.

Après la coupe, voici le profil que j’obtiendrai. La pièce sera glissée dans cette position, toujours de droite à gauche.

After the cut, here is the profile I will get. The workpiece will glide in this position, always right to left.

Après la coupe je réalise que j’ai encore une pointe qui m’agace.

After the cut I realise I still have a fine tip that bothers me.

Je l’ai enlevée au banc de scie.

I removed it at the table saw.

La moulure coupée, je peux faire une autre passe pour obtenir une autre moulure identique.

The molding being cut, I can make another pass to get another identical molding.

Après avoir réalisé une seconde moulure, j’ai pivoté la pièce bout pour bout pour faire une passe du côté opposé (la fine pointe a également été enlevée au banc de scie). Le résultat est un autre profil avec la même fraise et la même installation !

After milling a second molding, I pivoted the piece end for end to make a pass on the oppose side (the fine tip has also been removed at the table saw). The result is another profile done with the same bit and the same setup !

Deux moulures ayant des profils différents, mais réalisées avec une seule fraise et un seul ajustement du guide.

Two moldings featuring two different profiles, but milled using a single router bit and a single fence setup.

    Hi Serge

    OK now you have really impressed me! I can see now that your jig could make an endless variety of profiles. The other thing that impressed me was your simple cardboard jig to see the profiles on the bits. Whenever I have made moulding in the past it’s been trial and error getting the bit set, and of course I wasn’t adding the complication of a tilting fence. Thanks again for sharing all these wonderful tips. And I like your router bit holder too. Especially the addition of the magnet.

    Mark

    • Mark, finally I impressed you !! 🙂

      I enjoy sharing what I come up with, reason why I post almost everything I produce, and I also appreciate getting feedback from readers.

      Best,

    That makes some really cool profiles Serge !

    Salut mon Ami,

    Endless profiles, and some very personal finishes on inspired projects.

    I would like to make a suggestion that could possibly be useful. The mouldings that are found to be desirable by the maker once done could be quickly re-setup if there were to be a piece saved off of the original cut.

    I think that by cutting a fair sized piece of the moulding, listing the bit on the piece with a marker and any other quick reference helpful to a project, a piece of wire to hang it with and voila. Someone would have a sample to work with for set up and quick access to a desired profile amongst many, I’m sure.

    Having a formal catalog of the many chosen profiles is a safe way to protect the final dimensions and bit information without a doubt. A sample would of course be a bonus for hands on set-up but I could also see the samples used as a good visual tool for choosing one amongst many to add to a projects finished look.

    Your dual tilting router table fence gives users a great tool to personalize their projects and all this without having to spend a small fortune in cutters from the beginning. The cost savings are a blessing to a small shop and budget.

    Thanks for a super well thought out project that will be a very welcome addition to a great deal of our shops.

    Till next, Ray R.

    • Salut Ray,

      Thank you for your instructional comment. 🙂 It’s very nice from you to share those time saving ideas. One good habit I have is to mill much more moldings than I need, just in case, ending up with samples as you mentioned.

      I don’t know the price tag of a molding machine, but with this one I just build and tested, I have all I need to mill profiles and moldings.

      Best,

      Serge

        10-4 Serge, You’re tilting fence is a time and money saver that has repeatable capabilities that one at a small home or commercial shop could really benefit from.

        Here’s a scenario that I’m sure many or you have experienced. I had built a nice custom coffee table years ago and everyone seemed pleased as pie for a time and then, the spouse or Queen Bee said, Gee, do you think you could make some end tables to match the nice coffee table? Sure I said, and over the next 4 or 5 years there was a table added behind the sofa, a hall table and then the wall unit that covered almost 2 walls and was pretty much the last matching piece to that style or design.

        Have to say that I was pretty much a happy camper as far as the finished results were and so was ” the boss”. One thing though I guess the fact that the lumber supplier continued the moulding style for that period of time was a blessing. I would have had to either have them made or make them myself. The shape was a bit complex and not many were using them so again, I was lucky.

        When we make something, we usually put in much time and effort so the pieces will last and look their best through time. So, the table fence you designed can guarantee for years to come that a shape that was used years ago could be easily duplicated well at no extra cost to the project. What could be better to the gal or fellow making the piece to have that choice at hand.

        Your thoughtful design is truly a long term blessing that will adorn many, many projects through the years.

        Thanks again Serge,
        Till next, Ray R.

    Salut Serge,

    Good job illustrating the usefulness of using moulding cutters at an angle. Does the book live up to expectations?

    Chris

    • Salut Chris,

      I have some good ideas about using straight router bits with my new tilting fence. I’m disappointed about the book. I would say it could be fully appreciated by historic woodworkers and/or purists. As I mentioned in the article, if I lack imagination it should be a good source though.

      Serge
