record 071

The Record 071 router is mainly used for cleaning out or forming grooves and housings, and step housings. The router can be used with a closed mouth by leaving the depth stop and shoe in position, with the face of the shoe flush with the base of the router or opened mouth by removing the depth stop and shoe. The router comes with two square chisel type cutters and one splayed smoothing cutter. The cutters can be set facing forwards or set towards the rear by taking the collar clamp off and turning around to give a bull nose application.

The cutters can be adjusted up or down on a screw adjuster to depth required. The base of the router is 7 1/2" (19.1cm) 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.

The router has a retachable fence which can be fitted either hand to suit the work item. The depth stop and shoe can be set to suit the groove or housing depth required. Other uses include: butt hinge sinkings, stair string housings, lock recesses etc. A versatile router.

The Record 071 weighs approximately 1.02kg (2 1/4lb). The two chisel type cutters come in widths of 1/4" (6mm) and 1/2" (13mm). Originally the 071 router came with a full instruction booklet.
