Hey guys, I finally have all my ducks in a row as far as finishing my first subwoofer project... finally got my router and installed my circle cutting jig, got a variety of clamps (thanks to Hank Frankenberg for the Merle band clamp recommendation... got 2 of them waiting for the glue up... they look exceedingly useful!) for holding the project together while I glue, got my General Tools precision drill guide for cutting perpendicular holes (thanks Jack Gilvey!), got my MLCS 1/4" carbide spiral upcut bit, getting my replacement 1/2" collet chuck tomorrow for the used (read: rusted) one I got with the router (note to self: Amazon used ain't always what it's cracked up to be). So this weekend, barring any unforeseen screw ups, I may very well have a box put together . Here's my final two questions for those out there who have used the Jasper jig. Everything I've read concerning router usage tells me to feed the router "into" the work. For interior work, like speaker holes, they thus recommend a clockwise direction. My question is, I've seen project pictures that have a picture of the router sitting there churning away, almost unsupervised, cutting the circles. I really don't remember which page it was, but the fellow was talking about sitting under a tree for 3 hours while the circles were cut. Is this what I should expect? After setting up the Jasper so it's ready to cut, do I simply crank the router up, plunge to whatever cut depth (I currently assume I'm going to do 1/4" depth cuts at a time, until I get the hang of it), lock the plunge and let the router do it's magic without even needing to hold on? Sounds cool, but just making sure. I plan on hacking up some of my scrap MDF with the router to get used to it, of course. Dumb question number 2: I already have my finish plywood laminated to the front baffle. Perhaps this was a mistake, but let's go with it for now. How do I protect the plywood finish from chipping during the outermost flange routing? Anyone have secrets or tips?
