FULL DESCRIPTION
This router sign making kit includes everything that you need, except the router, to make beautiful signs. You can make horizontal, vertical and curved signs using either letters or numbers, or you can use a combination of both, with no limitation to the length or depth of the sign. The kit comes with six templates, four with letters (A - Z) and two with numbers (1 - 9), a phenolic router base plate with self-centering tool, 13mm solid brass guide bush and an 8.5mm TCT router bit with 1/4" shank. The templates are made from 6mm deep impact resistant polycarbonate that absorbs vibration and will not flex or bow during use. The letters and numbers measure 57mm in height and are in the clean, modern Arial Rounded bold font which features rounded corners to allow the guide bush to move smoothly around the inner edges.

If your router does not directly accept the 13mm brass guide bush then you need to fit the phenolic base plate to your router. This is simply a case of using the self-centering tool to centre the base to your router and then drilling the base to match the screw holes in your router. To make your sign, you mark out in pencil your wording, spacing the letters accordingly. Once you are happy with the pencil layout, set the plunge depth of your router to 2mm, securely clamp the template to your workpiece and rout out the first letter in a clockwise direction, making sure the guide bush remains in contact with the template for the duration of the pass. Once the first letter is complete, remove the clamps and place the required template over the next sketched letter.

The tungsten carbide tipped router bit is from our premium series and will allow you to rout hardwoods, softwoods and composite woods leaving a feather free, professional finish. This complete sign making kit comes highly recommended and will soon have you making beautiful house, name or number signs for family, friends or customers. ©

Sign making kit

Haven't used the kit yet but looks very well made and the delivery was very quick as usual. Bought it as it was on special offer at a very good price
It will go well with the 1/4" ex demo router I bought the week before

Very sturdy and I have no doubt it

Very sturdy and I have no doubt it will last a long time. Takes a lot of practice to get a good result, but that's half the fun! My only issue would be in fitting the phenolic plate to my router. It took two attempts to get the holes in the right places and it was massively fiddly to do, but I got there in the end. Overall a great but of kit.

With a router and a few clamps the limit of this kit is your own imagination.I have other sign making kits but have been frustrated by the lack of versatility.This kit has exceeded expectations and has allowed me to create items way beyond what was previously possible including using an old circular table top with the house name going around the edge and a 4' vertical sign with house number and street name allowing it to be fixed to the gate post.Using pencil lines to both position the spacing and outlines of the lettering is crucial to obtaining a good finish along with clamping the templates securely to the workpiece.

Have used other jigs but tempted by this one being on offer. Very smart lettering and as long as careful with set up good output. The guide bush a good fit I used on a Trend T3 with the supplied base as the bush is US Style and Trend adaptor no longer sold. I made one silly error on first sign as was doing upside down to use the clamps and aligned the R leg the wrong point. went right not left so to speak. So learned quickly. Also only needs a shallow pass for a clean cut, 2mm I did one pass then a second with an extra mm. Template well made good size and smart. I filled in the letters sanded the top and varnished. easy 5 stars. i also attached a thin batten to hold the template so letters aligned fully.
