|Hamlin||No offense but, we're talking Pine too. Even with brand new bits, I get a "fuzzy" edge left, usually some real light sanding and it's cleaned up. Not much you can do other than try "score" cutting. Climb cutting wouldn't be recommended either. Even though this works well for ply but, again, we're talking Pine.|

The difference is more support where the cutter is coming out of the piece you are |
routing = less tearout. Sometimes painters tape ( masking tape ) helps also.

I have presenting in the correct direction. I have been using two passes to reduce the tear out and that helped a little. I just got through feeding some more pieces through and this time I added a sub-fence to the face of the table fence and used a much smaller opening, just a little larger than the bit, and this worked great! |
So why the big difference??? I'm going to run some more tomorrow with different wood but for now the results seem quite different and I don't understand why.

|Ian1930elm||Hi Rex - I think you may be presenting the wood in the wrong direction. If the router is under the table and the cutter sticking up, you should be pushing the wood, against the fence, from the right and with a new cutter it will cut cleanly. I hope I am not telling you how to suck eggs. Regards Ian UK|

|gallianp||What is a "RMP"? typo? RPM ?|

|RLFX||try a different RMP ..|

Thanks, Ron, I will try that. This is construction grade pine and I was doing a lot of these but I will run them twice with this radius and if doesn't work maybe use a shorter radius. |

No end grain, Duane, this is just running down the stock. |

|RStaron||Try doing it in two passes. Is it construction grade or select? Select has a tighter grain.|

Hey Rex, |
Welcome to the forum.
Are you routing end grain ?
