Any help for a first time router user.
Could you please tell us a little about your set-up? Are you using a table, hand held, straight bit or rabbiting bit, with the grain or across, are you working with a bearing or fence, miter gauge?????? John has some good points but with a little more detail from you we might have even more "good" ideas......
