Table Routers Make Cross Dado and Rabbet Cuts a Breeze

Panel Router ideal for cabinet shops

Many experienced woodworkers hold the opinion that horizontal routing tables can be one of the most useful tools in your workshop.  A close cousin to your standard routing table is the TR2 panel router by Safety Speed Manufacturing.  This unit is a horizontal model offering accuracy and power in a space saving size ideal for cross dado jobs up to 36 inches. Designed with a guide tube carriage assembly similar to a panel saw but showcased with a 3 1/4 hp router motor it easily cuts dados as well as full-length rabbets. Its adjustable rulers and 2 blind dado stops take the guesswork out of shorter length cuts. Use the optional gauging system and air clamps to make those cuts fast and consistent.  An optional extension table is also available for more panel support.  One person operation makes this machine well suited for wood shops, schools, display manufacturers and cabinet shops.
