“ Brand: Ferm „
If you've ever wondered how that funny curved edge on a wall shelf or the grooves in kitchen cupboard, its with a Router. To all those who've never heard of it, I'll explain. It's kind of like a drill and to all effects and purposes has the same actions of a drill but it is used with shaped bits (or router bits) to get different finishes, you can make the edge of a piece of wood rounded without having to rub it frantically with a piece of sandpaper. And it is very easy to use all you need is a firm grasp and you're away! Oh and a little tip if you're routing any wood always use a mask and goggles because the little partiles of wood can do some real harm! A router and bit set is quite inexpensive roughly about £50-£100 and is worth the investment just for the sheer professional quality it produces. I bought a FERM Router from Screwfix for £29.99 and a bit set for £35, and used it to make roughly 40 radiator covers out of MDF, saved myself around £2000 making them myslef instead of asking a professional to do it. An essential tool for any budding DIY enthusiast.
