Drick, with your work on the table in front of the bit you would pass it from right to left. When free hand routing you would go from left to right. Remember this flips the bit and reverses the rotation of the cutter. To rout a dado clamp your straight edge guide on top of where you want your slot and rout from left to right since it is free hand.
