router


I have a router and the router bits. The instructions tell me how to use the router, how to attach the bits etc but as I have never used a router I have no idea what each bit does and how to use it. Is there a site I can look up or a book I can buy that will show me what each bit does. I am a visual person and need to see what the result is.
Thanks for your help

I really believe you should find a knowledgeable person to get you started PROPERLY. Just by your question, you are not ready to tackle a router just by reading. Your are going to SEVERELY hurt yourself or someone else.
Try your local lumber yard (not big box type) or a cabinet maker in the area. Invest a few dollars in their knowledge & experience...it could save your eye or definitely a few fingers.

Norm Abram had a two part show entitled Router 101 a year or two ago. It was pretty good. Did not show you every possible router bit but it did walk you through the standard bits and routing methods. Check it out at:

Thank you for your replies I went to the local library and got out some books but I find that I really need to be shown. Unfortunately if I approach a man he seems to prefer to actually do the job then show me 'how it is done' but I will try to approach perhaps a wood work group.
