A glue joint router, also known as a jointer router or a jointing router bit, is a cutting tool used in woodworking to create perfectly flat and smooth edges on boards that can then be glued together to form wider panels.
The glue joint router bit is typically used in conjunction with a planer, a machine used to flatten and square the faces of rough lumber, to create a precisely machined edge. The bit has two cutting edges, one on the top and one on the bottom, that remove a thin strip of wood from both boards to create a perfectly matched joint.
When using a glue joint router bit, it's important to take proper safety precautions, such as wearing eye and ear protection and using a router table or other secure surface to hold the wood. It's also important to use the proper technique to ensure that the joint is perfectly flat and smooth, as any imperfections in the joint can affect the strength and stability of the final panel.
