Default Template Routing - Critique

So I made a video of me routing a template and I was hoping to have a few people look at I and give me some pointers on what I could be doing better. It was a fairly simple template, but I want safety to be at the forefront of any instance where I am using my router. If you could, please, take a couple of minutes to watch it over and tell me if you can see anywhere I can improve on technique or safety. I know I could probably use some grip pads or something similar, but the piece I am working on is pretty large and easy to maintain control off (though the piece did jump a couple times as I fed it into the bit, but it wasn't bad).

I placed the video on my Facebook page. It's not great production quality, its the first video I have ever put up publically (my son kept putting his finger into the shot, the nerd). Just scroll down a little to 'Videos', its the only one there. Thanks for any feedback.

Besides the grip pads, you should consider using a "start pin". It will help you control the work piece better and you won't get that jumping that you experienced.

Watch this video for a better explanation.

My routing table, unfortunately, did not come with a pin. I saw some info on that a while back, before I bought the table, but I never thought to make my own. I will have to look into it.

I will see about posting the video here. I thought about doing that before, but I grow tired of posting the same thing over and over again in different places....

starter pin - easy enough to do... pins are covered in the PDF's which I trust you read...

posting - I don't go near FC because I've grown tired/weary of their intrusiveness/BS/lack of privacy and the tons of spam that is forever showing up...
can't go a day w/o getting something that's tagged FC something...

I only hang around there because of family. I got involved with a group of gamers that craft game related items (t shirts with logos, candles (??), necklaces, etc.) and decided to make a page for my wooden swords. It's not making me any money or anything, but it lets me display what I have done or plan on doing. Surprisingly enough I actually got a couple of hits off of my local Craigslist and sold a couple of pieces from that. Its fun to maintain and nice to get input on my finished items.

that's good...
but be advised there are many here that won't touch FC and if you want a wider/higher view count/hits it'd be in your best interest to post the video......

You might want to consider a respirator or dust control. Current thinking is that sawdust is bad for you.

I agree with Ken you should be using a vacuum and wear a dusk mask and hearing protection.

Stick.......I'm a newbie at Facebook. Can you tell me how to be sent any new postings on the Router forums Facebook page when they occur? I "liked" the Router forums facebook page. Do I need to do something else? Thanks.

It seems I never finish what I
