How does one know which router bits their router accepts? I have the Milwaukee compact router
This was exactly the information I have been looking for.
As good as instruction video as I’ve seen on YT, and I’ve seen a bunch of them. Easy to understand your voice and content, well planned, correct eye contact, good lighting and camera angles. I’ll watch some more, particularly the beginners hand held router video, which describes me perfectly, as I just purchased a new P601 handheld Ryobi router and starter 15 bit set.
Hea I really enjoy the time you spend with your very informative videos one of the best out there on here most just use the tools and not much useful information like yourself keep it up I really appreciate it thanks 👍
Great and useful information. The only thing you need is a Musclechuck to help you change out all of those bits with ease.
Nice “BIit” of information

I actually bought me a router, now I trying to figure out how to use it.
Thanks for the info!
At about 24 seconds in your board seems to be supported by a thin under layer holding it in place instead of clamping it down. What is the under layer.
I want everything
What an explanation video, didn’t know/realise about the up-cut bits – thanks!
Thank you for the information! it was very heplful!
Best intro to router bits I found. Many thanks
thanks, great vid, im a beginner, still learning how to use a router to make basic frame for my diamond paintings. whats the best brand router bits to use? i have a cheap basic router at the moment but will buy a more expensive one once i have learnt the skills.
Thank you for your well explained video which is really very helpful for me as a beginner. Expect more videos from you in the future.
Well presented. Very valuable information.
This is legit super helpful.
For my needs straight dado and spiral up cut. I’ll be using the rockler circle jig to cut circles . I’ll start by practicing cutting small circles and ovals before doing my main projects .
I’m a beginner (kind of)
I know there is lots with all the basic bits but can someone help me out with a good kit to begin with??
My router is an older craftsman giving to me and only hold 1/4 shank bits. I am a newbie for sure..Can I find the ones that you suggested in that size? Your video was very helpful. I like that you showed how the wood would look after using the bit.
Please help if you can and thanks for the video.
I’ve never used a Router before and wondered if you could help with a question?
If I want to cut a 2cm depth by 44mm width trench using a plunge router, what size straight router cutter length do I NEED to use?
Let me explain my train of thought based around the depth of cut.
Can I use a cutter that is 19mm cutting depth and just go extra 1mm via the router or do I NEED to use a cutter that is bigger in cutting depth than the depth I’m cutting?
Or could I just use a cutter with a cutting depth of 63mm and only go 20mm deep and therefore have a cutter that I can use in another job in the future that I might want to go much deeper, say 50mm?
Or another example is if I buy a 1/2" with a cutting depth of 19mm, would I be able to use this to cut a depth of 50mm for example as obviously I would take out material more and more in stages.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. You did not mention a round nose or box bit. Do you not use these?
We are all beginners when we take on a new project.
Great explanation buddy!! 👌👍 Subscribed!!
Sorry, was busier earlier, but yep, I think Woody is still giving away his woodworking book, but I’m not so sure. I managed to get it go’ogling Woody Hyezmar, and was surprised to see his "Woodworking Bible" up for grabs, hope this helps.
Great content!! I’m glad I saw this before buying my tools
Saturday morning…looking for an American-speaking ( not UK/Brit for now ) quick info to start my router-based box joint projects for Christmas gifts ( 105° in my Sat Morning work area) and here you are solving my quick question as to joint…bit…common sizes. I’ve already built my little trim router table and sled for the joint cutting and ALL I needed ( "impatient 80 year old vet…") was 2 or 3 common bit sizes and after more than 1 hour of going thru the YouTube library of things that are good, but don’t get to MY humble, simple needs for 2-day. Thank you, thank you, thank you…now I can get to work!
