    Router bit extension

    Back to the woodworker shop.
    This is a homemade router bit extension :

    Sorry, the photos are not so good.
    It was for making a neck pocket in an electric string instrument I was doing.
    I needed to reach a deep bottom while using a template and a copying ring.
    My router bit was too short, so I quickly did this extension on the lathe, and it actually worked well.
    I was fearing it would have not turned true enough, but no, I had no problem and did the job.

    I hope the router bit shaft has a Weldon-like flat under those setscrews. I would be scared to trust setscrews, flat or not, to hold a router bit at typical router speeds.
