How to make a Router Table Finger Hold Jig for Cutting Boards on the Stepcraft M.1000 CNC machine using Amana Tool® solid carbide and carbide tipped industrial router bits.

Plans for the finger hold jig are available on our website here.

I first applied Oramask 813 then carved through it. The solid carbide 60 degree V-groove bit did a great job cutting the masking leaving perfectly clean cuts! I then painted it using General Finishes Lamp Black milk paint, the weeding tool helped with removing the mask after it was done. Item links below.
