    Routers

    I know absolutely nothing about them but I am about to purchase my first one for my present sub enclosure and others to follow. Therefore, I have some questions.
    How do you see what you're cutting when using one? Everyone I looked at at Lowes had a bunch of stuff up top, and then a base, with little visabilty to see what you're cutting. Do they(most) come with a special sight that you look into while cutting?

    Double baffle board cutting. I've seen people cut circles in their double baffled enclosure that would go all the way into the first baffle and be like 3/4" wide. What bit do I use for that? Mortison<SP>? What type bit do I use to finish the hole that that speaker will actually drop down into? After cutting the lip part on the top baffle, I've seen people leave the inside circle of the top baffle. Do you cut around that?

    I plan to purchase the Jasper Jig from the Parts Express site so I should at least be able to get the important hole cut

    Rounding corners, what bit and size to round them thangs?
    If someone could give me an idea of the bits need for different styles of enclosure builds, and it's function, that would be lovely. Thanks for any help guys.

    Re: Routers

    Using a rabbit set to make your countersink hole bigger is a waste of time when you can simply cut it out with your jasper jig and screw+glue the two panels together.

    What you'll want will most likely be a basic 1/4" straight bit, a good handful of roundover bits, and a flush-trim bit along with your jasper circle jig...and from there if you run into situations that you need something special, go get it accordingly.

    And you'll be able to see what youre cutting from multiple angles when cutting...but a good amount have a clear plastic piece over one spot in particular so you dont have dust and chips flying at you...but you should be able to see what youre doing quite well from almost any angle.

    Excellent, just what I need to know. It makes sense cutting the baffles seperate then screwing and gluing. I'll be looking for those other bits too, Thanks.

    and when doing double (or more) baffles, line up the baffles, drill the center point for a couple sheets at a time.

    Cool, hadn't thought of that. Will do. I was wondering how they would line up right, and here it is.

    Both actually. Bits are not a place to cheap out. Better bits will outlast cheap bits by a far enough margin, that you end up spending more on the cheap bits

    Re: Routers

    Sorry for thread-jacking, but I'm considering buying a router in a couple weeks. What are the proper names for '1/4" Straight Bits'? Besides that (for cutting speaker rings, etc), and round-over bit(s), is there anything else needed to have just the bare minimum of what's required? Thanks.

    Use the first bit instead of a flushtrim bit when cutting speaker holes?
