Default newbie post guitar body ??

I was searching for some tips on routing guitar bodies and found this forum.

If there are any guitar body cutters out there any advice is welcome. I have a couple Telecaster templates and I'm looking to try my hand at using the Delta shaper/router table but I have some basic concerns regarding safety, tearouts, spindle speeds..stuff like that.

Routers: Ryobi 3hp plunge, Bosch 2.5hp plunge + fixed base, Craftsman 1.5hp, Bosch Colt 1hp, Dremel Pro 1hp plunge, Delta shaper/router table. Ryobi table.

I have a basic shop, table saw, thickness planer, jointer, bench mount drill press, bench mount belt/disc sander, spindle sander, band saw stuff like that.

Any advice will be appreciated. TIA
