The Variable Router Jig and Router Guide Bushings Are a Perfect Match. You’ll keep this versatile jig alongside your set of router guide bushings. That’s because almost every time you’ll need one, you’ll need the other. They will pair up for routing mortises for joinery and hardware; like hinge and lock mortises. Use the jig for inlay work and to add arresting details to your projects. You’ll grab your Variable Router Jig and guide bushings every time you need a clean, through cut or pocket in a panel. The standard 18″ long sides allow about 13″ of router cutting.
Quick, Precision Setups and so Easy to Use. You can assemble the jig in minutes. And once it’s together there’s no need to disassemble it because you can simply adjust the four sides to new dimensions for your next router operation. To change dimensions loosen the socket head cap screws that clamp the sides together. The supplied ball-tip hex wrench makes it a snap.
To resize the jig to your desired dimension, do a quick calculation of your cut size plus the offset of guide bushing and router bit diameter. Now you can use the laser engraved scales on the jig (in both Imperial 1/32″ and 1mm increments) to precisely set the sides. Tighten the socket screws and you’re good to go.
Hold It Right There! Of course you’ll need to hold the jig in place for routing and Woodpeckers Variable Router Jig has you covered. The jig comes with four special, heavy-duty stainless steel clamp brackets. These brackets slip into the channels on the sides of the jig and can be positioned anywhere along the outside edges. They are shaped to keep them and your clamps out of the way of your router’s cutting path.
Complete System. The Variable Router Jig (VRJ-17) comes complete with (4) 18″ tracks engraved with both inch and metric scales, all necessary Lockbars and hardware plus (4) Clamp Brackets and a hex ball wrench.
