Presentation box and cutters
For the box making enthusiast that wants it all, consider the boxed presentation set with cutters.
The set contains:
- a full set of Gifkins template cutters: H10, A10, B10, F5 and F15
- the Gifkins Master cutter kit, which contains ten  box making cutters and a big bearing
- a Gifkins-designed reducing collet
- all required hex keys, and
- hand knobs for the Gifkins router table.
The collection sits in a purpose-built presentation box made by box maker, Col Hosie.
The timbers usually used to make this perfect box, are a combination of Silky Oak and Cedar. It can also be made in Huon Pine and Rose Mahogany [rare timbers…extra cost].
Col is happy to help you choose timbers for your box. This may affect the final price. After consultation with Col, each box is made individually for you from quality Australian timbers.
Please note: postage will be added to purchases when we process your order.
All these cutters are designed for use in a table mounted router, and should not be used in a hand held router. The cutters are not guaranteed against breaking. The spiral cutter in particular, has a fine tip and should always be used in the table with a fence.
Take extra care to note the feed direction of the rebate cutter. With all cutting operations, the feed direction is opposite to the direction of motion of the cutting tips (i.e. opposite the direction of the tips as they enter the work piece).
Prolong the life of your cutter and save money.
 Before every box making session, place a drop of sewing machine oil in the bearing. The bearing is not sealed, so dirt and grime build up over time. If you do not keep the bearing clean, it will seize, causing damage to the cutter and your template.
 Regularly check that the grub screw in the side of the cutter has not vibrated loose. Alternatively, use a product like ‘Loctite’ to fix the grub screw in place. Hint: to glue in a grub screw, do so over a light coloured cloth on the kitchen table [I guarantee you will lose the grub screw if you do this in the workshop]. Position the screw hole over the flat edge on the cutter housing. Place a small drop of ‘Loctite’ in the hole and screw in the grub screw.
