Default Router kicking out

I am trying to router 3/4" AC plywood. Attempting to router a 3/4" dado, 1/4" deep, 17-1/2" long I am using the Rockler straight edge clamp and a Bosch palm router. The router is kicking out no matter how slowly I go or how much I try to keep it tight against the edge. What could be causing this and how can I stop it from happening?

Thanks!

Toni

Welcome Toni, that router is more than up to that job. What direction are you feeding your router into the work piece... left to right... or right to left? Sounds almost like your feeding it the wrong way and it is kicking it away from the work piece.

Hi Toni

Corey is right on but you can make a quick jig that will stop it no matter how you pull it or push the router .
" how can I stop it from happening? "

Find some 1/4" or 1/2" thick MDF or plywood and put in a slot that is 1" wide and 19" long then clamp the board to the project and then put in a 1" brass guide in your router base, set the router up the same way but this time use a 23/32 bit for plywood now your brass/steel guide is doing the work for you and it can't pull off the mark..

You may say I don't have a 1" router bit to put in the slot and I don't have 1" brass guide to fit my router and I don't have a 23/32 router bit then you can make the quick jig below that you can use with the Rockler bar clamp that will do the same job, it locks in the clamp and will not let it get off the mark.
