The PantoRouter™ uses a guide bearing to follow a template which moves the router bit to cut a pattern identical in shape but 1/2 the size.

Using our engineered plastic templates and a combination of guide bearing and router bits the PantoRouter™ can cut both the mortise and tenon for a perfect fit.
In addition to precision mortise and tenons, the PantoRouter™ will make box joints, dovetails, sliding dovetails and any number of unusual shapes or multiple mortise and tenon combinations on a single work piece.
The practical size limit for the workpiece is 4" high X 8" long. You can index the piece when cutting dovetails and box joints and make much longer pieces in multiple passes.
If you have an unusual need or question, please contact us at info@PantoRouterUSA.com.
This custom template was made on a customer's CNC machine. Use the Guide Bearing/Bit/Template sizing tool in the support section to determine the exact measurements for the slot and template.
Multiple mortise and tenons in a single work piece can be made with custom templates or by using two, three or four stock TEM MT3 templates mounted to the template holder.
Watch Matthias' videos on www.woodgears.ca to see how he made this multiple M&T. These joints are incredibly strong and if cut through can be add an interesting feature to your work.
