Router bits come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, from the most durable nylon and steel to a multitude of plastic and fiber. Spindle drivers can be used to push the router bits into the material, or they can be used to turn the bits around on a lathe. A spindle driver is usually used to turn the router tables at an angle, which cuts down on the time necessary to complete a router job. Spindle drivers also allow the user to adjust the height of the table to make it easier to reach the router bits.

 

Another popular bit used in router tables is the plunge router bit. A plunge router is simply a metal cutter with teeth that extend out to strike the material at the center. The teeth of a plunge router are typically in an elliptical pattern, making it easier to score the material with little to no effort. If you want a router with a little more kick, then you may want to consider using a plunge router bit that is made out of steel or laminated aluminum. These router bits are usually longer than those made out of nylon and steel, making them easier to score material with.
