In this example I’m using 20mm thick pine. On one of the pieces of wood I’ve marked two lines – one 6mm up and the other 12mm up.
Install the router cutter into your router table, using the marks as a guide. I’m setting the top of the cutter to the top mark (12mm) and to make sure I’ve got it in the right place, the bottom mark should be lined up with the mid point of the cutter.
In the first picture on your right, the cut is too shallow, so you need to move the fence back about the amount of the error.
The second picture is what happens if you move the fence back too far, so you have to move the fence forward.
Once you have the bit set up correctly, save the two test pieces so that next time you use the bit with the same thickness wood, you can set up the bit in seconds.
You can buy the CMT Drawer Locking Bit from Axminster Power Tools!
