Stair jig Contents
- 12mm thick stair jig marked for closed and open stair treads
- Sliding pegs, threaded rod and connecting bar.
- Router sub-base with four radius bushes (in two sets) to achieve the correct router offset
- A bag of screws to fit most routers.
- Instructions on the design of the stair and the use of the jig.
British Standard BS 585 Part 1, 1989 Wood stairs, and the Building Regulations Approved Document K 1991 are used as a guide.
- Make sure all cables are clear of the router.
- Make sure the work piece is correctly supported.
- Always use protective goggles when using the router.
- Do not switch router on with blade touching the work.
- Never remove the router when it is switched on and moving.
- Make sure there are no obstructions to the path of the router.
- Never try to cut more than 10mm depth on one cut.
- Do not force the router too fast. This can damage expensive router bits.
- Never remove the router from the jig whilst it is in motion. Always allow router to stop and switch off before removing.
- Ensure that the section of the worktop to be routed out is well supported from below.
- If routing for a long period of time, we advise that ear protection is worn.
