It has been over 25 years since I discovered that I was not getting the full potential with the use of my router and I began to investigate the use of the template guide that was supplied with my router. Due to the many processes I had to achieve when re-furbishing executive aircraft I began introducing a number of other Guides to achieve what I was doing. This simply has brought me to the conclusion that I could achieve more potential with the router with the aid of the template guides. This interest has progressed over the years to enable me to work with greater safety awareness and produce projects that were not possible of producing in my router table.
I would be interested in any others that may have experienced the same progress to introduce new routing techiques with the aid of the guides
