    DOUBLETAPER. Black Decker and

    Porter-Cable

    routers both have a double

    tapered collet. A taper o n

    the

    eQlleL

    nut fits

    over 3 taper

    on

    the collet.

    And then

    a

    second taper on the collet fits into a

    13.,..1'\'(1ole

    the end ofthe router arbor,

    ~'lhe nut

    i tbe

    bit in the router.

    Al l collet ,work on the same basic princi

    pie: a taper on one

    part.

    of the ..ssembly

    works against a 18p r on another part, B y

    ti (htening a nut round the collet (0 in

    some

    collet

    itself) the two tapers bel l i ' on one another

    a nd c au se

    the collet to

    squeeze

    around the

    shank of the bit.

    A

    router collet is different from a drill

    chuck in lhat a collet wraps around and

    on the entire shank uf the router bit,

    A drill chuck bears on a limited number of

    points (usually three),

    MmR AND SPUNE JOINTS

    Aiter ~he cove is seraped ami sanded

    smooth. cut the workpieces to get a I:rand

    9'length o ut o f

    each

    piece. T he -e fo ur p ie ce s

    are then mitered to get two front-back

    pieces (A) 1 2 V long and two end pieces (8)

    SV.long.see Fig. 5.

    CUTTOLENGTH.

    To

    miter these pieces to

    length, I added an auxiliary fence to the

    miter gauge and used u stop block (:IS

    shown in Fig. 6) to make sure I cut match

    ing pieces to exactly the same length.

    S ta rt b y

    CUlling

    a

    I;; miter on one

    end of

    each workpiece. Thcnclamp a mitered stop

    block to the

    aux il ia ry fence

    to eutone ofthe

    fron~ back pieces (A

    Ho

    final length. 11 se t

    tb e s to p so the pieee \\'1' a little lo ng a nd

    made a cut. Then Iudged the stop over

    and cut to the final length of 12 1

    A s s oo n a.

    this

    P Ie ce is c ut, c ut

    the other

    front-back pi,.....,

    with

    the ,top

    block

    in the

    same po>ition. Then repeat

    t hi s P I OCedUI l

    to miter the two end pieces 8) to n f ina l

    length of8\,

    GROOVE .OR SPLINE. The sides are

    joined with the aid ofsplines. (Spline. add

    strength

    to

    the miters and keep the piece.

    aligned as they're clamped together.)

    1bmake

    this joint,

    ~'UU

    have to cut a

    to,.

    deep

    groove

    ineach mitered end, see COl

    ner Detail in Fig. 5. Keep the saw blade at

    a 45' angle and slide the rip fence over to

    u se as

    It

    .IOp. Posit ion

    the f ce

    10c ut th e

    groove

    ii I om

    the

    iltsilb corner o f e ach

    p ie ce, see F ig. 7 .

    ~ote;It helps here to use

    8

    lest piece to

    m ak e s ure the groove is no t cut too deep so

    you don't cut through into the cove.

    TRIM TO II'IDTlI. After

    the

    grooves are

    c ut. th e fo ur sides ca n be trimmed t08 final

    widlh ofZV'. Trim a little offbclh ed~ so

    there's 8 ~ -wjdc border above the cove

    and a

    \

    -wide border below the cove, see

    Fig. 8.

    SPLINES.

    The last step is to

    CUl

    the

    splines. Since the spbnes

    will

    show on lhe

    top edge of the ease. I decided 10 make

    them out of walnut (using scrap left over

    f rom mak in J ( the sides) .

    The splines are cut so the grain runs

    across

    the

    jomt line (for grearest

    strength), ~ the blade a little over .

    high (the combined depth of the gro ov es in

    the mitered ends). and set the fence '.

    from

    lhe blade tthe thickness of the saw

    blade kerO..... . Step l in ~ig..

    Now stand the workpiece on end and

    make cuts on bolh ends, Then re-sdjust the

    fence to cut off the 'plint'
