This application will secure the material to be routed and

Router-Ease Guide System:
The Router-Ease Guide works as a double
fence guiding system that controls the cut of the router bit. It functions with
a router sub-base that rides along the inside of the guide and/or stop arms by
providing fixed surfaces that control the cut to be made with the router.

The Router-Ease Guide runs off the Gauge Block provided.
The Gauge Block is a three-tiered measuring device. It measures the distance
from the router-cutting bit to the edge of the sub-base. This measuring block
will identify where the router bit will make the cut.
the Gauge Block on the cutting line.
Work the Router-Ease Guide
from the left to the right.
a. Move the Router-Ease Guide until the
inside surface of the left guide arm touches the side of the measured Gauge
Block. Secure the left guide arm by tightening the left guide arm clamp.
b. To set the right guide arm, reposition the Gauge Block. Position the
inside of the right guide arm to the Gauge Block based on where the right side
of the cutting line is located.
Oftentimes the required cut is thicker
than the diameter of the router bit. The Gauge Block must be used to first
position the left guide arm and then used to position the right adjustable
guide arm to meet the required cut. Additionally, use the Gauge Block to set up
the two stop arms if needed.
A blind dado requires the Gauge Block to
be moved three times as the Gauge Block will secure the cut from the left guide
arm and the right adjustable guide arm and the one stop arm.
