Routering Small Parts

image

Routering profiles on small parts can be a very dangerous operation. The pic above shows a simple method to hold a small part that allows this operation to be done safely.

I simply used an offcut of the tote with abrasive paper glued to it to allow for parallel clamping of the small #2 tote in a 10″ handscrew. The abrasive paper prevents the workpiece from squeezing out of the clamp like a watermelon seed between your fingers.

As always thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.
