Default upcut router bit in table mounted router

I generally cut mortises in a hand held router using a Mortise Pal, but the latest project requires deep mortises that the MP jig won't do. Tried cutting them in table mounted router and the upcut bit "grabbed" the test piece. I was feeding the piece right to left as normally do. Do I have to go left to right in a table mounted router with an upcut bit?

remember that when you cut a mortise one side of the cut will be a climb cut, ( no matter which way you push it) only way to control the cut is to take shallow cuts

You are usually better off to remove as much of the waste as possible by drilling instead of routing.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You have to cut it out a small amount at a time, the cutter just cant take the load so I plunge cut the waste out and only clean up the mortise once all the waste is gone. N
