The Angle-Ease allows you to tilt your router and change the bit angle, resulting in different profiles from the same bit. Woodhaven claims that with the Angle-Ease, a router motor, and a few common bits you can reproduce moldings that usually require expensive special bits — or you can create your own unique profiles.
Tilting your router with the Angle-Ease is probably safer than trying to tilt your workpiece. You can set the Angle-Ease at fixed pin settings of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 22-1/2, 25, 30, 35, 40, and 45 degrees, or you can adjust it to a custom angle with the built-in scale. Two angle adjustment knobs secure the chosen angle.
Two ratcheting knobs lock the bit height after you’ve adjusted it with the crank handle. You can adjust the height a full 2-1/4″, or if you need more range you can reposition the router in the Angle-Ease with the quick-release knob.
The Angle-Ease connects to its 3/8″ x 9-1/4″ x 11-3/4″ phenolic plate with aluminum double-track angle brackets. It fits the Porter Cable 7518 motor without an adapter and the Milwaukee 5625 with just a shim. Other router models from Porter Cable, DeWalt, Bosch, Makita, Hitachi, and Ridgid require an adapter kit.
You can pick up an Angle-Ease universal router tilt for $210 plus $18 shipping and handling from Woodhaven. It’ll require a bit of assembly before you start going to town with it.
