For adding decorative embellishments to a workpiece, this router template kit uses a system of patterned gears to create myriad designs with radial symmetry.
The modular base comes with four templates patterned with 20 shapes. By layering different shapes and altering the interval rotation of the template, you have near-endless design possibilities. The templates and base are indexed to guide positioning and allow repeatability.
The kit includes a 7" universal router base plate*, special 11.1mm, 17mm and 24mm guide bushings, plus 1/8" downcut spiral and 1/4" V-groove router bits. An included pencil guide lets you trace out a test design before routing. Perfect for producing small cut-outs, inlays, or artistic lacework, the patterns can also be linked for larger decorations.
Instructions and several pattern guides are included for reference. Used with a plunge router.
