The router is a very versatile tool. A router can easily be used to cut rebates and grooves, round edges, cut elegant profiles, flush trim veneers and laminates, make cutouts, and much more. You can clamp the workpiece in place and free-hand route the shape you’d like using a paralel fence, or a copy ring. Conversely you can mount the router in a table, and push the workpiece past the router.
Because routers are always used at very high RPMs, there are some special safety rules to be followed. The cutting head must be clamped for at least 2/3 of its shaft length into the router’s chuck, the work piece must be firmly clamped in place when you use the router freehand, or the router must be securely mounted to the router table when you would like to move the workpiece by hand past the router bit. It is also very important that, freehand, or using a router table, the cutting is done against the spin of the router bit. Be careful to use good-quality bits that are undamaged and sharp. Investing in carbide bits, as opposed to HHS bits, is almost always a good investment, as the carbide bits will last many times as long.

Collet for AEG Router MF 1400 KE
Some of our customers use cutters with non-metric shank sizes. That is why we also offer a 1/2 inch collet for the AEG MF 1400. Be careful not to confuse similar-looking sizes like 12 mm and 1/2 inch (12.7 mm). An incorrectly mounted cutter is extremely dangerous. Because the collet size is not necessarily shown on the collet itself, we recommend that you always measure its opening width.
Note: 6 mm collet not available for this router.
