— The Router
A Delight To Use
— Good Woodworking


The PlungeBar™ dramatically improves the action of depthing your router. It consists of two or three bars attached to the router's base and over the router's handles so that when you squeezes them together the bit drops into the work.

You can drop the router using just one hand.

Depthing and fine adjustment are now smooth, fingertip actions, thanks to the added leverage given by the bars. One hand brings the bars together, while the other is free to check the depth of cut. 

It also improves safety – instead of having the router revving at 22,000 rpm with the bit dangerously exposed, you can keep the bit safely concealed and drop it into the wood only when you’re ready to cut.

 It's also ideal for woodworkers with gripping difficulties.

There are many applications where enhanced depthing will give greater comfort, speed and safety. 

In a Router Table

Depthing a bit in a router table can literally be a pain in the back. You have to use two hands to push the router up, another hand (or chin) to hold the table down and a fourth hand to measure the depth of cut! The PlungeBar™ makes it easy: squeeze the bars together with one hand, measure its height above the table, and lock it off.  No need for a winding handle router lifter.

Turns the router into an quick and accurate mortiser.

On the WoodRat

It gives a single handed plunge action which allows you to squeeze the router body down to the base with one hand, chomping the bit down into the work. The other hand is free to check the bit depth or track the wood into the path of the bit. 

The PlungeBar turns the router into a quick and effective mortiser. You can work without it, but you’ll use it every time you change a bit or re-depth a cut, and it’s essential for serious mortising.

You can even use it when routing freehand.


Using the PlungeBar™ puts no pressure on your work and so avoids the burn marks and jaggies as the bit enters the wood. It allows you to make ramping cuts that simply cannot be done accurately by pushing against the springs with the conventional handles.

You may take your cut down in more than three stages, or in only two, but however you plan your cut, it’s easy with the PlungeBar™.
