Default Greetings All,

Hello I'm Mark,

I'm recently retired from 22, interesting and challenging years in the Military. I've been searching for something unique to what I've done all my life to do now. And noticed that everytime I'd see something made of wood, especially hand made, I would take a deep interest. I enjoy watching the Wood programs on PBS and I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see awood tool. With all this I decided to give it a go and low and behold I Love it. I had a few tools I had aquired or bought for unique jobs I had done in the past. At Miter saw, when I put in our wood floors and a table saw I bought from a friend who just wanted to get rid of it. I made a few things messing around and my Wife just loved them. So now she's encouraging me. We've started converting a garage into a wood shop. She's doing most of the designing and I'm actually making my own workbench's, Dust collecting center, Drill press table with drawers, etc. from some plans I bought online.

I was wounded in Afghanistan, and now deal with chronic pain and physical limitations. I take my medication and have my coffee early in the morning. While I wait for the pain to go away, I read or look at wood project videos on the net, then I go try and do them. I'm new to woodwork and of course don't know a lot, so I'm looking forward to learning a lot of important need to know or tricks of the afraid. I'm afraid all I can contribute right now, are probably laughs after I explain some mistake or dumb thing I might have done. Bottom line, I'm happy to be a member of this site


I actually came across this site, because I am trying to find out why the stock start smoking and burning when I'm making a cut on the router table. My bits are Carbid Craftsman. I've tried taking shallower cuts and slowing down or sppeeding up on the feed, but the wood stiil smokes and burns. The bit get black and very hot. And Ideas?

Thanks
Mark

Welcome Mark

All I can say is THANKS

May I ask what type of wood are using and you are passing the wood by the bit the right way..start on the right side of the router table and move the stock to the left..

Hey Bobj3,

Thanks for replying and your help. I'm using the normal stuff off the shelf at Lowe's. I think it's Pine. I checked the labels, put all they say is premium or select, not the type of wood. I find it's soft, dents easy. Yes, I'm following the arrows right to left.

Papawd,

Thanks, I will take your advise and try it. Your family are true Patriots, I know you too as Family make many sacrifices and have tons of worry. Without your faith and support your Service member couldn't do what they do, as well as they do it. Thank You
