Edward Preston Circular Quirk Router, 1388P

preston router

The Edward Preston circular quirk router has three cutting irons of different widths, which are fixed by means of a thumb-screw. The irons are adjustable to any depth, and have two cutting two working in front of the cutter, which is slightly narrower than the teeth, and so a clear Quirk is made of one uniform size.

The fence is adjustable from 1/8 to 3 inch. This tool will work either circular, straight or across the grain.

This model, 1388P, is an improved version of model 1388 as the irons are adjusted by means of the milled nut. The milled nut also acts as a stop, and prevents the cutting iron from being forced back when in use.
