Hello N/A and welcome to the forums...

We offer some light reading for the new folks...
As in, we've put some helpful information together at this here link to help you get up and running in the world of routers... We hope it to be useful to you... Enjoy...
Do take some time and read the safety PDF's... PLEASE!!!
Blood and trips to the ER, we find, are very annoying... Not to mention – expensive...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

I believe this should be covered in your operators manual...
