My Router Tips Over

BACK to FAQs

The Problem

Several of the templates employed by EZInlays are less than 4 inches wide. Because of that, the router tends to tip off to one side or the other when routing an inlay or a void.

Prefit the inlay into it's void to check the fit.

The Solution

All you really need to do is to use a couple of other templates to extend the platform so the router base is more fully supported while making your cuts. These templates do not need to be taped into position, but it is advised that they aren't allowed to just float around either.

 

Sometimes a free floating platform base can catch the bottom of the router base throwing off the cut.  We recommend any platform employed be somewhat secured so it doesn't just float around your work piece. The platform can move a little during the cutting process,after all it's only there to provide support.  But you don't want it getting in the way either.

A platform base built from other templates

You don’t have to use templates to build your platform either. Any material will do as long as the height is about the same height as the template being used to build the inlay.  Just make sure the edges are flat so the router base does not catch while making your cuts!
