  My Routers and How I Use Them 1 of 7  

As I was using my favorite D router today and listened to the cutter shaving the wood from a recess and marveled at how quiet it was compared to the scream of an electric router.

That is why I like to use unplugged tools. I can hear and feel how the blade is engaging the wood. I have owned this old router for years and each time I get it out to use I marvel at the patina on it from decades of use.

I never cleaned it and it looks today just like it did when I first got it. It was made by an accomplished craftsman who got the ergonomics just right. The sole has a thick brass plate so it can be used for centuries without wearing out.

I am fond of the carving that the old craftsman added. It tells me he was proud of this tool.
