Tool Type: Router
Model No: N/A
The Veritas medium router is a mid-sized router which sits between the
small Veritas router and the large Veritas router plane.
The medium router is a unique design to Veritas.
The router has a ductile cast iron body fitted with a stainless steel depth stop and either a 1/4" straight cutter or a 1/2" straight cutter.
The Veritas medium router is capable of housing any of the larger Veritas router plane cutters.
The router is used for cutting, cleaning and smoothing grooves / depressed surfaces parallel with the surface of the work.
The router cutter can be set facing to the front for regular work or it can be set towards the rear for bull-nose work. The forward facing position has a closed mouth for maximum control when bridging recesses.
The chosen router cutter is placed in the router facing the preferred way, with
the stem passing upwards through the collar and with the bevel side of the cutter
Once the cutter is in place, ensure the collar is secured by tightening the collar locking screw.
The router is also equipped with an optional depth stop.
The router can cut up to 25mm (1 inch) deep with the depth stop in place or it can cut up to 45mm (1 3/4 inch) with the depth stop.
The router body has a machined and ground flat sole with the upper side finished with a black finish.
The patented Veritas router plane is made in Canada.
