Materials for making my Router Wrench:
2 pcs 3" x 3" - 3/4" thick scrap pine or plywood.
I used the 3/8" hex-bolt because I had one on hand. But if you're like me and have a drill or small driver dedicated to screwing (screws, nuts & bolts), you may want to consider using a hex shaft that you can quickly snap into your drill/driver.
Instructions for making Router Wrench:
1. Take all three pcs of wood, and mark center.
How to use my ROUTER WRENCH
Using my ROUTER WRENCH is pretty self explainatory, but I thought I'd mention a few things anyway:
First off, for safety sake - I would not recommend using a hi-powered drill that doesn't have any speed or torque adjustments. Doing so could either strip the nuts or threads on the rod of the router, or break or chew up the plastic knob. I recommend using a cordless drill/driver or one of the small low volt drivers (using the optional part I listed above).
Different brand routers - If you have a different brand of router than my Freud, you'll need to make the recess in the top disc of the wrench to fit the knob or adjusting device on your router.
Directions for use - To use my ROUTER WRENCH: 1) Install it in your cordless drill/driver; 2) make sure the speed and torque are set low; 3) set the recess end of the wrench over the router adjusting knob; 4) start the drill/driver and run it until the collet or bit are in the position desired. It's that easy!
