MARK V PRO FENCE
ROUTER TABLE SAFETY
RULES
• Be sure to read and understand this en­
tire instruction manual before using the
MARK V Pro Fence Router Table. Also,
do not use the MARK V Pro Fence Router
Table unless you are sure it is assembled
properly, all safety devices are installed,
and you understand the operations you
are attempting.
• Keep the Guard in place and in working
order. Always setthe Guard no more than
1/4" above the workpiece.
Page3
~iiiiiiiiO==--====~-~~--
MARKVPROFENCEROUTERTABLE
• Keep your hands, fingers, and other parts
of your body at least 3" away from the
rotating bit.
• Use a Push Stick, Push Block, Feather
Board(s), fixtures, or other safety devices
to maneuver a workpiece into a rotating
bit. If a kickback occurs, these devices
help to protect your hands and fingers.
• Use only Shopsmith Parts and Accesso­
ries on your MARK V Pro Fence Router
Table. NEVER use non-Shopsmith Re­
placement Parts or Accessories. They are
not designed like Shopsmith Parts. Us­
ing non-Shopsmith Parts may create a
hazardous condition and will void your
warranty. Follow your Router Motor
manufacturer's recommendations as to
Replacement Router Motor Parts.
• Do not Rout secondhand lumber. If you
hit a nail, screw, or other foreign object,
you could be hit by pieces of metal or
there could be kickback.
• Do not "freehand" Rout stock less than
12" x 12" or equivalent.
• Support long boards and sheet materials
with a Roller Stand(s) placed l' to 4' from
the Worktable.
• Always use a Fixture, Fence, Miter Gauge
with Safety Grip, and/or Starter and
Guide Pins to help control the workpiece.
• Always feed the workpiece against the
rotation of the bit, not with it. Otherwise,
the bitwiJIgrab and throw the workpiece.
• Keep a firm grip on the workpiece at all
times and never hold the workpiece with
your hands in line with the Router Bit.
• Always use a Feather Board Assembly or
other devices to hold or guide narrow
Page4
r
521962
workpieces. Also, use a long piece of
scrap stock to feed narrow workpiece
underneath the Guard to complete a cut.
• Cut with the grain of the wood instead of
against it. You will get a smoother cut and
the operation will be safer.
• Avoid standing in-line with the
workpiece being fed. In the event of a
kickback you could be hit.
• Feed the workpiece slowly. Use extra care
in routing workpieces that contain fig­
ured grain of knots, as these may cause
kickbacks.
• When you are routing stock up to 10"
wide across the grain, use your Miter
Gauge with Safety Grip to control the
workpiece. The workpiece must extend
5-1/2" away from the router bit.
• When stop routing, always you a Stop
Block(s) to control the length of cut. Fail­
ure to use Stop Blocks could cause the bit
to grab and throw the workpiece.
• When routing oversized stock, always
use a least one Push Block to help control
the workpiece firmly against the fence.
• Do not work with stock thatis too small or
too large to handle safely; that is warped,
bowed, or cupped; or that has loose knots
or other defects.
• Plan the operation before you begin. If
you are in doubt about how to complete
an operation safely, do not attempt it,
contact a Shopsmith Service Representa­
tive for advice.
• Free freehand routing use a Guide Pin,
do not rout a workpiece which has less
than a 4" radius.
-
521962
-
• The minimum length of stock should be
no less than 8". You should also use a
Push Stick and/or Push Block on any
stock between 8" to 18" long.
EYE PROTECTION
Always wear eye protection when you use
power tools. Use Goggles, Safety Glasses or
a Face Shield, to protect your eyes.
• Goggles completely surround and pro­
tectyour eyes. Many Goggles will also fit
over Regular Glasses. Be sure your
Goggles fit closely, but comfortable.
-
• Safety Glasses don't fog as easily as
Goggles and can be worn at all times.
Regular Glasses normally have only im­
pact resistant lenses. They are not Safety
Glasses.
•
A Face Shield protects your entire face,
not just your eyes.
HEARING PROTECTION
Prolonged exposure to high intensity noise
from high-speed power tools can damage
your hearing.
• Hearing Protectors screen out noise lev­
els that can damage your ears, and are
recommended for ALL uses with Routers
mounted in Router Tables.
GUARDING FOR RQUTING
-
Most shop accidents happen to woodwork­
ers who fail to follow instructions, or fail to
use Guards and Safety Devices. Although
proper use of Guards and Safety Devices
often requires additional setup, the protec­
tion for you and your family is well worth the
effort.
MARKVPROFENCEROUTERTABLE
DRESS
Loose hair and clothing, which could be
entangled in rotating bits, are very hazard­
ous.
• Tuck long hair under a hat or tie it up
above the shoulders. Do not wear ties,
gloves, loose clothing, rings or other jew­
elry. Roll sleeves up above your elbows.
ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
Follow the electrical requirements that ap­
pear in the instruction manual that cam with
your Router Motor. Do not overload your
electrical circuits
UNDER-TABLE MOUNTED
ROUTER
The Router is not included with the MARK
V Pro Fence Router Table. You will have to
purchase a Router or use one that you al­
ready own. Any UL approved router can be
used.
The specifications for the router that you can
use are:
• Use only UL approved Routers
• The Router must not exceed 3 hp.
• The Router switch is best located so that
it can face toward the front of the Mark V
Router Table. It can then be easily and
safely reached during operations.
• The Router switch must be able to stay in
the"on" position without being held by
hand. It also must easily switch off as
needed.
Page5
•
MARKVPROFENCEROUTERTABLE
• The Shopsmith Accessory Switch is rec­
ommended if the router motorswitch does
not meet the above criteria.
521962
sentative or store personnel for advice.
Never operate the Mark V Router Table if
it is not functioning properly.
SAWDUST AND CHIPS
• Keep bits clean, maintained and sharp.
Sawdust and chips can be a fire hazard and
breathing sawdust can be a health hazard.
The sawdust from some woods is toxic. To
help protect yourself from sawdust:
• Don'ttryto make your own collet adapter
to hold different sized bits. Balance is
important at high speeds, so always buy
appropriately sized collets.
• Attach the MARK V Pro Router Table to
a dust collection system.
TYPES OF ROU"rER BITS
• Or wear a close-fitting dust mask. Clean
or replace the filters in the mask regu­
larly. Also, open a window or use a fan to
ventilate your shop.
MOUNTING ROUTER BITS
• Turn off and unplug the Router before
mounting router bits.
• Follow the recommendations of the
Router manufacturer as to the sizes and
types of router bits to use.
• Make sure the router bit is secured prop­
erly in the collet. Loose bits could work
free and cause serious injury. Insetthe bit
all the way into the collet and retract it
about 1/8" to avoid transferring vibra­
tions to the motor armature and bending
the shank of the bit.
• Be sure the bit is positioned with the
cutting edge facing to the right.
• Listen for chatter or signs of looseness at
start-up. If you hear, see or suspect prob­
lems, stop the tool immediately, unplug
it, and check the tool thoroughly. Correct
any problem before proceeding. If you
are unable to locate the problem, you can
contact your Shopsmith Service Repre­
Page6
Router bits come in a wide variety of shapes
and sizes designed to be used at very high
speeds. The part of the bit mounted in the
router chuck is called the shank and the
rounded extension beyond the cutter on some
bits is called the pilot. The cutting edge of the
bit is called a flu teo Router bits have one, two
or three flutes and the more flutes there are on
the bit, the more cuts that can be made per
minute. A higher number of flutes reduces
the load on the motor and produces a smoother
cut.
Quality bits are made of high-speed steel,
solid carbide or carbide-tipped steel. High­
speed steel bits are heat treated for extra
hardness and to hold keen cutting edges.
Carbide bits (solid or tipped) are the finest
bits available today. Although more expen­
sive, they will out last high speed steel bits at
a 15 to 1 ratio on softwoods and are high
recommended for use on hardwoods, plastic
laminates, plywood and particle board.
Router bits are generally classified into four
different categories: grooving bits, edge-cut­
ting bits, panel bits and laminate and veneer
trimming bits.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF
ROUTER BITS
You will enjoy longer use of your router bits
if you make it a point to handle, use and
sharpen them properly.
-.
MARKVPRO FENCE ROUTER TABLE
521962
-
•
Use your router bits only for the job they
are intended to do.
• Make sure the bit is mounted rigidly in the
collet.
• Learn to cut your workpiece at the proper
speed to prevent heat buildup that can
cause the loss of bit temper.
ASSEMBLY
IWARNING I
Make sure the Speed Dial is set to "Slow",
then turn off and unplug the MARK V be­
fore performingany ASSEMBLY procedure.
1.
With your MARK V Pro Fence System
setup in the Horizontal Position, remove
all Accessories, leaving only the Main
Saw Table Assembly in the Carriage
Assembly. Adjust the Saw Table to a
comfortable height.
2.
Loosen both the Headstock and Car­
riage Locks. Slide the Headstock to the
left and the Carriage to the right, as far as
they will go. Lock into position.
3.
• Sharpen your bits with a small slip stone
or oil stone with oil. Hone the fact of each
cutter with light strokes in one direction.
Never hone the outside edge because it
reduces the diameter of the cutter. Hone
each cutter edge with the same number of 4.
strokes.
Place the Router Table facedown on a
clean, flat shop table or bench. Locate the
package containing the Router Plate and
assemble the Brackets ONLY, according
to the included instructions.
• Between operations, set your bits in a safe
place where they will not fall or get hit.
Never use solvent on a bearing-piloted bit without
first removing the bearing.
• Mter use, clean bits thoroughly.
• If the cutting edge is nicked, take the bit
to a professional sharpening service.

CLEANING
As you work, sawdust will accumulate on the
Router Table and this residue can affect per­
formance. Clean the Router Table and Motor
with your Dust Collector or Shop Vacuum.
Use the Brush and Crevice Tool Attachments.
After vacuuming, clean all major metal parts
of the Router Table (except the Router Motor)
with mineral spirits to remove all dirt, grease
and any built-up wood pitch. Use a clean
slightly damp cloth to wipe all residue from
the Guard and Worktable. Clean the Router
