Woodpeckers, a tool manufacturer in Strongsville, Ohio, has purchased the Multi-Router from Lorraine Machine of Greenville, S.C. and is starting to ship its first run of machines.

The Multi-Router debuted in 1987 and features 3-axis movement. The router mounts horizontally, behind the workpiece, on a vertical surface that moves up and down. The workpiece clamps on a horizontal table that moves in and out and from side to side. Levers and stops control the height, width and depth of the cut. Most operations require working two levers.

The system gives end-users the advantages of speed, accuracy and repeatability over a traditional router table or shaper.

“The Woodpeckers Multi-Router is fundamentally the same rock-solid machine first produced in the 1980s. Small refinements have been implemented in milling the castings, so the stops are more reliable and the template following mechanism has been modified to operate at tighter tolerance. Additional changes are in the design phase. The plan is for improvements to be retrofittable to earlier models,” says George Snyder, director of marketing for Woodpeckers.

The Multi-Router sells for $2,995. Optional accessories include a stand, pneumatic clamps and electronic rule.
