Welcome. That’s fasinating that you teach blind people to use a router. I would like to see pictures of their work. I have a hard enough time using tools being able to see.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
