Make sure cutter can rotate freely.
4. Noise. Take appropriate measures
for the protection of hearing if
the sound pressure of 85dB(A) is
exceeded. Routing sound pressure
may exceed 85dB(A), so ear
protection must be worn.
5. Eye protection. Always wear eye
protection in the form of safety

7.
Before each use check that the
cutting tool is sharp and free from
damage. Do not use the cutting tool
if it is dull, broken or cracked or if in
any other damage is noticeable or
suspected.
Using Routers In A Fixed Position

approximately hip height.
6. Use a No-Volt Release Switch.
Ensure it is fixed securely, easily
accessible and used correctly.
7. In router table (inverted) mode, stand
to the front right of the table. The
cutter will rotate anti-clockwise when
viewed from top so the feed direction
is from the right (against the rotation
of the cutter). In overhead mode,
stand to the front left of the machine
table and the feed direction is from
the left.
8. Do not reach underneath table or
put your hands or fingers at any
time in the cutting path while tool is
connected to a power supply.
9. Never thickness timber between the
back of the cutter and the backfence.
Useful Advice When Routing
1. Judge your feed rate by the sound
of the motor. Feed the router at a
constant feed rate. Too slow a feed
rate will result in burning.
2.
Trial cuts should be made on waste
material before starting any project.
3. When using some attachments e.g.
a router table or dovetail jig, a fine
height adjuster is recommended.
4. When using a template guide bush,
ensure there is sufficient clearance
between cutter tip and inside edge
of bush and that it cannot come into
contact with collet and nut. Ensure
cutter and guide bush are concentric.
Router Cutter Repair/Maintenance
1. Repair of tools is only allowed in
accordance with the manufacturers
instructions.
2. The design of composite (tipped)
tools shall not be changed in process
of repair. Composite tools shall be
repaired by a competent person i.e.
a person of training and experience,
who has knowledge of the design
requirements and understands the
levels of safety to be achieved.
3. Repair shall therefore include, e.g.
the use of spare parts which are in
accordance with the specification
of the original parts provided by the
manufacturer.

Sub-base Sets
Ref. UNIBASE
To obtain a perfect accurate close fitting joint, a
30mm guide bush must be used. The guide bush
must always be fitted concentric with the cutter.
This can be achieved using Trend sub-bases and
30mm outside diameter guide bush ref. GB30.
Trend sub-bases have a central recess to allow
fitting of the Trend guide bush to most makes of
routers and are available ready to fit the most
popular makes.
Two types are offered GB/5 and UNIBASE.
All sub-bases contain screws, a line up bush
and pin. The line up pin and bush ensure exact
alignment of sub-base with router spindle, when
fitted with the relevant collet.

Panel butt connectors are essential for
connecting worktops. They fit into the recess on
the underside of the worktop and are tightened
with a 10mm spanner. The jig has integral bolt
recess slots to allow the bolt recess to be cut in
the underside of the worktop, using the standard
router cutter. The recess is elongated to allow
easy access for the spanner.
Biscuit Jointer for the Router
Ref. 342X1/2TC
Ref. TR35X1/2TC
Ref. C152X1/2TC
Worktops with inadequate support below them
need additional stability by biscuit jointing the
edges. The biscuit jointing set for the router
together with the No.20 biscuits will ensure
worktops do not sag or warp in time.
Flat Biscuit Dowels
Ref. BSC/20/100 (Pack of 100 biscuits)

Setting Out the Joints
When cutting a joint ensure location bushes
contact the postformed edge of the worktop. For
certain joints the worktop will need to be inverted
so that all cuts are made into the postformed
edge, never out through it. When routing worktop
the balancing paper on the underside may feather
edge – this feather edge should be removed with
abrasive paper.

Location bushes are held in position by ‘O’ rings.
Insert the smallest end of the bush into the hole

Female Joint
When cutting a joint, hold the router
guide bush hard against the template
and cut from left to right. It is
recommended that the depth stops of
the router are used to set the depths
of cut. Several shallow passes of
the router should be made and it is
not necessary to lean heavily on the
router or the jig. Allow the weight
of the router to rest on the part of
the template which is resting on the
worktop. Ensure router remains
parallel and upright at all times.
n Leave the two location bushes in holes
marked Green dot. (The Green dots must be
uppermost). Leave the length stop bush in
position.
n Place the template onto the worktop to
be cut, ensuring the location bushes are
touching the worktop. Now cramp securely in
position using two quick action clamps or the
accessory clamps ensuring they will not foul
the router path.
n Set cutter depth.
n Plunge router and cut joint in a series of
passes, feeding left to right. At the end of
each cut release plunge.
Routing the Female Part of the Joint
Ensure worktop position is
comfortable. Keep proper
footing at all times.

Depending on accessibility lay female

worktop on top and support other end.
Using a pencil draw round the female cut
onto the male. If inaccessible lay female
onto male. Depending on a right or left
hand joint, the pencil line may need to be
transferred on to the other side. Due to the
difference between the cutter and the guide
bush diameters, the cutter path (or cut line)
will be 8.5mm over from the edge of the
template, therefore either measure 8.5mm or
use a packing piece of this size to offset the
template by this amount to ensure the cutter
cuts along the pencil line.

marked Red dot. Face marked Red dot
must be uppermost.
n Remove the length stop (or adjustable
long clamp) from the female and fit to the
male side of template. Place template
across the width of the worktop and
tighten the knob. Now clamp securely to
worktop.
n Cut the male joint before finally cutting the
worktop to length. All cuts must be fed left
to right. At the end of each cut release
plunge.
Out-of-square Joints (max. 3°)*
It may not be possible to position all joints at
90°, in this case it is the male part of the joint
that has to be adjusted.
The length stop has a mitred end which is used
to set up for an out-of-square joint up to 3°.
To mark out an out-of-square joint, first lay the
female worktop on the cupboard carcass in its
correct position. Next lay the male section of the
worktop on the carcass and on top of the female
section of the worktop. Support the other end
of the male worktop. Using a pencil and from
underneath the worktop mark around the female
joint onto the male section of the worktop, if
access is difficult lay the female worktop onto
the male worktop, support other end and mark
with pencil from above. This drawn line is the
male joint cut line.
*Please Note:
Test fit the joints together, abrasive
paper may be required to clean up the
chipboard core.
Out-of-square joints are possible, but the
finished joint will not be as good as a 90° joint.

Strengthening the Joint
If the joint between the worktops is not
supported underneath, after some time the joint
may ‘sag’ and become misaligned; to reduce
this the joint should be reinforced with a loose
tongue or biscuit dowels. The biscuit jointing
cutter set Trend Ref. 342 can be used with a
portable router. The size of biscuit used should
be No. 20.
Underside View
Ref. BSC/20/100 (100 biscuits)
Ref. BSC/20/1000 (1000 biscuits)
A 650mm worktop should have at least 5
biscuits.
Sealing the Joint
Cutter Ref. 342
The cut edges of the joint should be coated with
a water-resistant adhesive, or sealant before
assembly, to prevent moisture seeping into the
core of the worktops, which would swell, and
disfigure the worktop.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Fault
Cause
Remedy
n Joint does not fit correctly
at the radius.
Cutter or guide bush is the
incorrect diameter or location
bushes are not against
worktop edge.
Check concentricity of cutter
with guide bush. Cutter 12.7mm
diameter with 30mm diameter
guide bush. Ensure location
bushes touch worktop.
n The back edge of the joint
does not line up.
Either the length stop or
template was in the incorrect
position, or the worktop has
not pushed up against the
length stop when the joint
was cut.
Check position of length stop
and re-cut joints.
n When clamped together the
joint has irregular gaps.
The guide bush has drifted away
from the edge of the template
whilst cutting either part of the
joint, or wood chips in particle
board have torn slightly.
Check with a straight edge
which part of the joint is uneven
and re-cut (this can only be
done on the male cut) ensuring
that the guide bush is kept
against the template by
machining from left to right. Use
abrasive paper to remove torn
wood chips.
n Chipped laminate
Can be caused by a blunt cutter
or removing too much material
at one pass or exiting out of
postform edge.
Always use sharp cutters and
when cutting through the
laminate cut 3–4mm of material.
Maintain correct feed direction,
to ensure cutter enters
postform edge.
n Jig slipping on material
Clamps not secure or too deep
a cut being made or cutter is
blunt.
Check clamps for wear. Clamp
securely, take shallow passes,
use a sharp cutter.
n Cut joints not square
Router has tilted or operator
has leaned heavily on router
causing jig flex.
Ensure jig is supported and do
not push hard on router taking
shallow passes. Ensure weight
of router is on supported part
of jig and that the router is
upright.
n Assembled joint not flush
or bowed
Worktop different thickness or
worktop not flat (cupped).
Ensure worktop is same
thickness and flat.
