Default Can you believe this..

The darn wood peck aluminum insert ring got loose and engaged the ĺ inch top bearing CMT router bit and the pressure snapped the router out of plunge rods and router raiser and landed on its motor still running and the dang emergency switch would not turn off.
I had to dive for the plug and yank it out of wall.
Thank god for German engineering with the original DW625 the entire time the router was still running it never flipped over. Now thatís balance.

Dam Router

If you keep this up you will need to install a TP holder on your router table

That kind can give you a heart attack when it will not power down with the switch..

I could not figure it out when you took the table saw back but I can see it now PLEASE don't get one, I want to talk with you and not about you.

Just a side note about table saws *** My Son was cutting some 1/4" plastic last week on the table saw and it did climb up on top of the saw blade and shot it at him and got him on the side and took off and stuck in the wall behind him, so to say it can happen so quick to anyone....

I have been telling him to make a hold down for the table saw but now he as a black and blue mark about foot long on his side to remind him to do it,he is one of the guys that took off the guards on the table saw because they are in the way that can be true for some but if you remove it you need to use a hold down device so the blade can't pickup the stock and shoot it at you... the one I made and use all the time holds the stock down and will not let the stock move backwards....

I'm glad you didn't get nailed and you know you can make the hole bigger in the snap-in plate easy on the drill press LOL LOL Please take care buddy...

I know this a a 20/20 thing but I put clear shipping tape on the rings I have just to be on the safe side..that's when the fence is not on top of them... holding them down.

Thanks friends.
I didnít get hurt and the reason I didnít get hurt is when I use the router in the table I never lock the plunge lever. So when this happened instead of the
Bit breaking up and shooting towards me, the force of the spin forced the router to eject downward out of plunge base instead of breaking things up.
Also you might say I have full time guardians looking after me and they have their hands full when ever I start building something ;-)
Yep, no table saw for me Bj

I'm certainly pleased that you didn't get hurt, but I'm puzzled as to how accurate work can be done on the table using a face cutter if the plunge lever isn't locked. I realise that in this instance a flush trim cutter was in use, but the same observation applies.

Hi Harry
No need to lock the plunge lever if the router has Router Raizer installed. see first picture.
I leave mine un-engaged just for this type of mishap and also you can raise and lower the router on the fly.
If it had been locked, I would be getting more stitches now.
