Record Router No. 071 1/2

record 071 1/2

This router is mainly used for cleaning out or forming housings and grooves. The 071 1/2 router has a closed face and no depth stop or show. The router comes with two square chisel type cutters and one splayed smoothing cutter. There are two cutter positions, standard and bull nose. The cutter is adjustable for depth of cut by a screw adjustment. The router comes with a fence which can be used either hand.

The base of the router is 7 1/2" (191mm) wide, which allows the router to be used on most width's of work items. If needed a timber sub base cab be fitted for extra wide work. Two holes are provided in the base of the router for the attachment of a sub base.

This router is a lot less common than the 071 due to a much shorter production lifespan.
