Let’s face it. There are dozens of ways to cut mortise and tenon joints. But nothing on the planet matches the Multi-Router for speed, accuracy and control. Every motion of the router and work piece is controlled by a series of twelve glass smooth, tight-tolerance linear bearings gliding on polished steel rails. Whether you’re using the precision machined aluminum templates or manipulating the three axes and stops manually, You are in complete control. Even the complicated compound angle joinery found in chairs can be mastered in a matter of minutes by combining table angles and template choices. But mortise and tenon joinery is just the beginning of what the Multi-Router can do. You can also do sliding dovetails, through dovetails, box joints, loose tenon joints and more. The Multi-Router is a serious, heavy duty machine that will help you take your woodworking to the next level.
One feature our customers constantly rave about is the template system. The precision machined-templates guide the stylus on a perfect track. The templates feature perfectly square shoulders, not beveled edges, so there’s no need for trial-and-error test cuts every time you switch between mortise and tenons. By allowing the ball bearing stylus to follow a precise template, human error is virtually eliminated. Just keep the stylus on the template and make your cut. It’s that easy. All the controls are intuitive and conveniently located. The workpiece travels in the X and Y axes (in-out and side-to-side). The router travels in the Z axis (up and down). Every direction has travel limiting stops and the Z axis includes a scale to dial in the precise location of mortises and tenon faces.
Another advantage is the cast and machined work table with multiple positions for the pivoting heavy duty clamps. You can easily reach any spot on the table with the clamps. Two clamps are included and more are available if needed, along with pneumatic clamps for those more production-oriented woodworkers.
The rock-solid engineering of the Multi-Router is backed up with top-flight manufacturing. The machine is comprised of six solid, CNC machined aluminum castings. Anything that slides does so on precision linear ball bearings. Anything that locks does so onto hardened steel surfaces that won’t mar. Anything you touch has been made to feel comfortable and inspire confidence.
You can build your own stand for your Multi-Router (it makes a great starting project) or get the factory steel base and get right to work. The standard engraved scale can be replaced with the optional, American made digital read-out. You can add extra hold-down clamps or supplement them with optional pneumatic clamps. There are also numerous optional template sets you can add. In other words, you can customize your Multi-Router to fit your shop and your workflow.
If you’re ready to take traditional joinery techniques to a new level of precision and accuracy, while also shaving hours off the time you devote to each project, you’re ready for a Multi-Router.
