    Next, I fix the pin with welding.

    I put the frame of pin router on the pins. The frame of the Pin Router keeps as if it welded to the table.)))

    I could not drill holes in the right places. Because of the cross-beam. So I decided to weld the hinges to the table.

    Hey Vlad!

    How is this coming along? By this time I think you will be in full production where you throw a tree into the machine and it spits out fully built guitars from the other side. We miss your skills here mate!

    Hi, Dave!
    I made an adjustable stop for routing parallel slots. Tomorrow I'll take a photo.
    That's what I'm currently busy with.
    20180412_150020.jpg 20180412_150450.jpg 20180412_150454.jpg 20180414_112829.jpg 20180414_114244.jpg 20180414_115827.jpg
    Extremely, good control design up / down. This was done for demonstration, but it turned out to be very convenient when routing.

    Although I planned it:

    Convenience in most is that the buttons should be on the table top of Pin Router. But I wanted to fix this on the side of the table.

    Full pickup production?

    Very professionally built machine with a great amount of thought and innovation. Don't you just love a pin router? I've never seen a commercial CNC working but I cannot imagine they would be any more accurate or faster, once the template has been made, but a lot more fun:lol: What size is the bit you used for the demonstration??? 3mm?

    Great work!!

    Whats that you are using for the pin holder Vlad? Is it a drill chuck? That was the best solution I found for my large overhead router. That way you can use a variety of pins and cutters to suit particular jobs, but I seem to find that 3mm cutters and pins are more accurate for detailed work even cutting out bodies or necks. Seems to be less tooling marks to deal with.

    Did you build in some way of perfectly aligning pin to cutter? With mine if something is a fraction of a mm off centre I can loosen the overhead frame and reset with great accuracy. I actually had a trimmer router long ago which had about 1mm run out in the chuck. I dismantled it and thoroughly cleaned and re-lubricated it and it came out 100%

    What depth of cut do you find the best? There is always a temptation to go deeper but I've found around 1 to 2mm at a time gets there a few minutes later, but without any problems.

    Come on Dave, one question at a time ;-) People might start thinking you are getting over excited about the idea of someone joining your small and very exclusive overhead pin router club!
