PRAZI GROOVECENTER allows for quick and accurate setup of the router table fence and for the cutting of grooves or slots in the center of any board up to a 4-1/2" width or thickness.
The router table fence positioning system features high-precision sliding gears accurate to .001", according to the company, creating a 2-to-1 reduction of the sliding pin in relation to the thickness of the stock. This allows the user to center stock on the exact center of the router bit. Centered mortises can be made in one pass, while it's also useful for installing drawer slides and creating grooves for cabinet door panels. The GrooveCenter can also be used with any manufacturer's lock miter bits. The Prazi GrooveCenter is priced at $149. Contact: Prazi USA, P.O. Box 1165, Plymouth, MA 02362.
