Edward Preston Grooving / Depthing Router, 1397

preston router

The Edward Preston router number 1397 is a small useful tool for smoothing grooves. The cutter can be used in the standard centre position as seen in the photo or it can be positioned where either of the handles are located. This is achieved by unscrewing the handle and securing the cutter in its place. This allows the tool to get close into corners.
