INTRODUCTION Your Craftsman Router Crafter is a newly developed A crank ( # 1 ) which fits into the back of the drive machine which wilt enable you to utilize your router spindle is provided to rotate the work piece , You may to its fullest - - making table legs , turnings , posts , notice that the drive spindle ( # 18 ) has considerable spindles and other turned carvings of almost any " play " or looseness in the cable drum ( # 20 ) , _ This is design you wish . There are four basic operations normal and is no cause for concern _ which carl be done on your Router Crafter . They are : 1 . Straight " beads and flutes " cut lengthwise ( paral - The tail stock ( # 47 ) is also an aluminum casting which lef to the work piece ) . These may be of a straight carries the tail stock center screw ( # 50 ) which is a or tapered style . 1 / 2 " threaded steel rod ° The center screw passes 2 . " Roping " or " Spiraling " _ both right and left through a guide bushing ( # 49 ) which is adjustable up hand - - and may be either straight or tapered . and down to permit turning straight or tapered work pieces , . The tail stock can be positioned anywhere 3 . Turn " beads , coves and steps " around the work along the steel tubes to accommodate different lengths piece . The different forms are made by the shape of work pieces , . of the router bit which is used ° 4 . Contour turning of varied shapes by letting the router follow a template which is attached to the The vinyl coated steel cable ( # 42 ) which is wound front of the Router ' Crafter . . around the cable drum runs over Deirin ® pulleys ( # 12 & 15 ) and is joined together with a tension spring The four basic type cuts enable you to produce ( # 41 ) which serves to keep the cable taut . There are hundreds of different designs by using them in two metal lugs which are attached to the cable - one combination . on the upper and one on the lower cable lines ° The Included with this manual are drawings of typical full lugs are for affixing the cable to the cable clamp ( # 29 ) size turnings . ( Inserted in back cover ) When read - to advance the router and router carriage when making ing any of the sections on the various types of turning , " roping " or " spi ; aling " cuts . Attaching the upper cable check the sample being referred to as this wilt help to lug to the cable clamp produces a left hand spiral understand the many turning methods and designs whereas attaching the lower lug to the cable clam'p which are possible with the Router Crafter . . produces a right hand spiral . The lugs are left un - attached when making other than spiral cuts . . CONSTRUCTION Baslca _ ty the Router Crafter is composed of a Head Stock and a Tail Stock ( Fig . 20 ) which are held in line The carriage ( # 33 ) has two identical screws ( # 36 ) . with each other by four heavy steel tubes ( Nor 44 & These are used to adjust the depth of cut and also to 52 ) . A carriage ( # 33 ) which carries the router is provide a repeatable " stop " or maximum depth gage _ . mounted to and travels along these tubes _ There are two hose type clamps on the top tube ( # 14 ) The head stock consists of a cast aluminum frame which serve as stops for the carriage at each end of ( # 6 ) , a cable drum ( # 20 ) , on which the steel cable the desired cutting travel . The two clamps can be ( # 42 ) is wound and which turns inside the head stock positioned against each side of the carriage to prevent frame , a cast aluminum drive spindle ( # 18 ) which turns any lengthwise movement of the carriage . inside the cable drum , a locking plate ( # 9 ) which will Clamps , screws , nuts and washers ' A ' are provided _ or lock the cable drum relative to the frame , and an index mounting the Router Crafter on a base or bench . See pin ( # ! 7 ) which permits the indexing of the drive Fig , 2 , The mounting box ' B ' could be made from 1 / 2 spindle ( # 18 ) relative to the cable drum ( # 20 ) ° The to 3 / 4 inch wood ( plywood works weII ) _ Mounting drive spindle can be indexed in - increments of 15 ° - Router Crafter as shown gives a place to store toofs , that is the indexing provides for equal spacing of 2 , bits , etc . 3 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 12 , and 24 cuts around of a work piece .

On the tail stock , there are five graduation marks " C " ranging from zero to one inch taper over the full length of the work piece . Fig . 19 . With the top edge of the center bushing " B " positioned directly over the lowest mark , the center screw " F " would be approximately in line with the center of the head stock .
