« Part 2: Router Safety and Operation P1 Part 3 of Woodworking Safety series Part 4: Drill Safety & Operation »

Finally got 1 tool done! Got 9 more series to go. Here is a link to my web page which contains all the video segments.

This kind of sucks having to break it up into segments. This is my first time doing something like this. However it will be beneficial when a student misses a demo. This is basically the info the would get in class. I also included a PDF for them of my study packet for the tool. You are welcome to use the packet, however please respect my time and energy creating this and give credit.

feel free to give your thoughts. Please remember, I am a shop teacher not an actor! :)

One thing I noticed is that some of the pics in your packet are extremely fuzzy. Other than that it looked great

One other thing I noticed in watching the videos… when using the benchtop router/shaper table, you really should have it secured to the bench in some fashion so it won’t move. Other than that an awesome series.
Keep up the good work.

Those were my 2 big shoulda coulda wouldas that rustic pointed out. The packet is fuzzy because the dependent files were lost when my computer crashed last spring. I need to find my books and rescan. I have the original in my file cabinet at school and that is what I copy. I think I should have zoomed in a couple of times closer. Next video, I have enlisted the aid of a student to run the camera, so hopefully that will help.
