    this is something I came up with it is a over the bit shaper pin. I used an old router table fence and a router edge guide a bolt with a long metal spacer. I do a lot of template shaping and was burning up a lot of guide bearings, i can do much shallower passes so the router bit lasts much longer as well. it works well and is much safer than a pin router. since this one worked so well I plan to make one that is much better

    Hi,
    Nice !
    Effectively,I feel it more interresting than a pin router, but could you explain more the benefit compared to a copying router bit with ball bearing ?
    Maybe for smaller diameters ?
    On the other hand you work is hidden by the template, not an issue ?
    Thanks,
    Christophe
