Hi John. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

when the router is in a table you alway's feed into the rotation of the bit. You probly know this bit just a reminder. also do the end grain of the wood than the long grain this clean's up the chip out from the end grain than long grain clean's this up. go here and watch this video of the router work shop router table and you will see just how it is done good luck Oak Park Enterprises Ltd.: Catalogue

Hi John,
Also when machining narrow pieces or end grain it is good to have a push block or backer block. This will keep the narrow piece stable & help prevent tear out as the bit exits the material. Feeding into the rotation is right to left on a router table. Watching some videos is a good idea.

Have a nice & safe day!
