This station was designed around the metal arm pin router kit from MLCS.(Daisy) The case is made from MDF.

It features a 4 inch to 2.5 inch vacuum reduction just below the PC 690 router for better air movement. See picture 3.

I will use a piece of 1/4 inch material to set on the top for my first cut. Then remove it for second cut. This allows
one to make cuts at 1/4 inch each time (which is safer), without having to move the router up and down.

This looks like a very good build. I hope we will get to see some of your projects made with it.

You can use a pin router for bowl making, but my use will probably be to make exactly the same part over and over. Some thing like a gears for clocks, parts for a toy cars. etc.. I am hoping to make them faster than you can using a scrollsaw. Also they will be exactly the same.

Just follow the template for outside cuts, so all pieces are exactly the same. Also, I hope the reduces the amount of sanding needed.

did you use a pin router from Woodline…......if not where did you source this?

When using a pin router, do you simply rotate the workpiece and the pin follows the contours
