Adjusting Bit Depth
Unplug the router and make sure
the switch is OFF before inserting or
removing bit, making adjustments, or
performing maintenance or service.
DO NOT make adjustments while the
router is running.
To adjust the bit depth:
1. UNPLUG THE ROUTER AND MAKE
SURE THE SWITCH IS OFF!
2. Loosen the lock knob shown in Figure
4 and adjust the base to approximately
the desired height.
Feed Direction
Once the bit has been selected and
installed properly, and the depth has been
set, you need to determine the proper
feed direction of the router across the
workpiece:
To determine the feed direction:
1. Examine the top face of the workpiece
and determine the direction of the
grain. Feed the router so the bit is
cutting with the grain (cutting along
the growth rings as shown in Figure
5). Cutting against the grain chips the
wood rather than cutting it, making a
rougher surface with more “chip out.”

3. Fine tune the depth of the router bit by
using a measuring device, or place the
router on the workpiece and eyeball
the depth for an approximate measurement.
Note: The scale on the Model H7791
is not calibrated to any specific point.
Only use it for reference when making
incremental changes.
2. Always pass the router across the
workpiece so the bit is rotating opposite the feed direction as shown in
Figure 5. If the cutters are moving in
the same direction you are feeding
the router, you are performing a “climb
cut.” This is a very dangerous operation because the router could lunge
forward out of your hands, causing
serious personal injury.
4. Tighten the lock knob to secure the
base plate.
5. Plug in the router and make a test run
in a scrap piece of wood to make sure
the depth is correct.

Routing Operations
Once the router bit is installed, the depth is
set, and the feed direction is determined, it
is time to start routing.
Routing Tips
•
Performing routing operations in multiple passes produces smoother results
with less chance of “chip out” and burning of the workpiece. It also reduces
the possibility of the router jerking out
of your hands from trying to remove too
much material in one pass.
•
Cutting end grain with the router will
cause tearout. Cutting the end grain
first allows the tearout to be trimmed off
by the side cuts.
•
Feed the router in a counterclockwise direction when routing the outside
edges of a workpiece. Feed the router
clockwise when routing interior holes.
•
The correct feed speed depends on the
speed of the router, bit size, shape, and
sharpness, and the characteristics of
the workpiece. Feeding the router too
fast will cause chatter marks, chip out,
and possibly damage the bit and motor.
Feeding the router too slow will cause
burn marks and extra build-up on the
router bit. Make a test cut on a sample
scrap of the workpiece to determine the
correct feed speed. A router fed at the
correct speed should make large, thin
shavings.
To perform routing operations:
1. Secure the workpiece to a stable surface.
2. Place the router flat on the surface of
the workpiece, making sure that the bit
is not touching the workpiece.
3. Firmly grasp the router and turn the
switch ON.
CAUTION: The router will "kick" when
started. If it comes into contact with
the workpiece it could jump out of your
hands and cause injury.
4. Smoothly move the router in the correct
feed direction into the workpiece.
CAUTION: DO NOT start routing at
a corner. Starting at a corner may
cause the router to grab, damaging the
workpiece corner, and possibly causing
personal injury.
5. Feed the router along the workpiece at
a consistent rate of speed. Be aware
of the sound of the router motor and
the sound of the bit cutting. If the motor
begins to bog down, or the sound pitch
of the router bit lowers, reduce the feed
rate.
6. When finished routing, turn the router
OFF, and allow it to come to a complete stop before setting it down.

Curved Trim Guide
Straight Guide
The curved trim guide is used for trimming
curved surfaces, such as adding a decorative edge to a round table or trimming
curved corners on a laminate countertop.
The straight guide can be used for trimming, cutting dadoes, straight dovetails,
and for cutting circles.
This guide is only necessary with router
bits that do not have a guide bearing. The
bushing in the curved trim guide rides
along the edge of the workpiece guiding
the router bit.
To use the curved trim guide:
Only use router bits with no guide bearing
when using the straight guide.
To use the straight guide tor trimming:
1. Slide the straight guide onto the base
plate as shown in Figure 7, then set
the guide height and tighten the lock
knob.
1. Slide the trim guide onto the base
plate as shown in Figure 6, set the
guide height, and tighten the height

Model H7790/H7791 Laminate Trim Router
To use the straight guide for interior
cuts.
To use the straight guide for cutting
circles.
1. Set up the straight guide as explained
for trimming, but adjust the guide to
allow the router bit to follow an interior
slot.
1. Set up the straight guide as shown in
Figure 9 with the guide plate facing
up.
Note: When cutting interior slots,
the router will tend to wander toward
the guide. Keep a constant pressure
towards the workpiece, and pull the
router towards you, instead of pushing
the router.
Note: The router will cut circles from
23⁄4"–43⁄4" when the lock bolt is placed in
the hole closest to the router and it can
cut circles from 43⁄4"–85⁄8" when the lock
bolt is placed in the hole farthest from
the router.
2. Make sure there is enough excess
material at the end of the cut to support
the straight guide. If the guide slips
off of the end of the workpiece, it will
wander off of the desired line. You may
wish to add a longer piece of wood to
the workpiece for the straight guide to
follow.
3. Follow the instructions in Routing
Operations on Page 11 to make the
desired cut as shown in Figure 8.
Figure 9. Guide setup for cutting circles.
2. Use a compass to mark the desired
circle on the workpiece, then drive a
small nail into the workpiece at the
center of the circle.
3. Place the hole in the straight guide
over the nail, then loosen the lock bolt
and adjust the guide until the router bit
aligns with the marked circle.
4. Adjust the router to the desired depth.
Figure 8. Routing a slot.
5. Lift the router above the surface, turn it
ON, and then carefully lower it into the
workpiece.
6. Rotate the router in a clockwise direction, using the nail as the pivot point.

Template Guide
The template guide allows the router to
follow a template or pattern. This setup
is necessary when routing interior slots
where a bit with a guide bearing will not
fit.
To install the template guide:
1. Remove the screws securing the bottom of the router base as shown in
Figure 10.
Guidelines for building the template:
1. MDF is the most common template
material, but the template can be made
out of any material that is flat on the top
and bottom, and is at least 3⁄16" thick.
2. Take into account the diameter of the
template guide when calculating the
size of the template. The diameter of
the bushing (X in Figure 12), minus the
diameter of the router bit (R), divided
by 2, gives you the template offset as
shown in Figure 13.

3. Attach the template to the workpiece
with screws or other removable fasteners. Make sure the fasteners are
installed in areas where the router bit
will not cut and recessed so the router
base will not catch on the fastener.

template guide.
Using the template guide:
1. Use a bandsaw to remove excess
wood around the template.
2. Press the template guide into the template and follow the edge.

SECTION 4: MAINTENANCE
Router Maintenance
Always disconnect
power to the machine
before
performing
maintenance. Failure
to do this may result
in serious personal
injury.
Router maintenance is simple. Keep the
router free from dust, dirt and grease and
always store it in a dry place. Plastic parts
can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth,
but never use water to clean any electrical
parts. Solvents should also be avoided
on plastic because of the possibility of
damage.
Replacing Brushes
Motor brushes will become loaded with
carbon deposits or wear out over time.
Extend the life of the motor brushes by
removing them periodically and cleaning
off the carbon deposits.
If the motor will not run, makes squealing
or grinding noises, or performance is dramatically decreased, check to see if the
motor brushes need to be replaced. When
replacing the motor brushes, replace both
at the same time.
To replace the motor brushes:
1. Remove the caps on the sides of the
motor housing as shown in Figure
22.
Inspect the router for loose parts, damaged cord or switch, and inspect the
bits for chips or cracks. Replace the bit
if it is worn or damaged. Continuous
use of a worn or damaged bit will not
only decrease working efficiency, but also
overload the motor, so the bit must be
frequently checked.
With the exception of the motor brushes,
the electrical components of this router
are not user serviceable.
Contact our Technical Support at (570)
546-9663 for any repair work that requires
opening the motor housing and for replacement parts.
