When routing a profile all the way around a piece, always work from the same side and orientation of the table (i.e. the front OR the side; not the front AND the side). Otherwise, any deviation from a flat table and/or plate will transfer to the profile and become apparent when you complete the profile.

bobj3 Hi Tim

I'm not to sure what's in WD40 and they will not tell anyone but it has something in it that will dispalce the base lube, water, oil, dirt, etc. it's great for cleaning because it will lift just about anything and leave a LIGHT oil base, just in case you don't have any router bit cleaner around and you have some light 3&1 oil in the little can, it works well because it's a petroleum base item...

bobj3 HI Tim

I recall someone saying don't use WD40 on router bits,,,they make bearing lub and cleaner for router bits..

Something about the WD40 braking down the lub in the bearings...

HP, Power
No Base plate on drills

But I should add I have use router bits in the drill press..
But they do like to hang up at low speed..

But the norm is a no no...

Ariel I read this tip elsewhere and know a little about the why, but I'd like more info.

"Never use router bits in a drill"

grim99 For template routing always jig saw or band saw 1/8 inch close to the line you intend to cut.

jfacteau Make sure if you are a wearing a long sleeve shirt to tape or put rubber bands on the cuffs to keep them snug to the wrist. Its not a pretty picture when the shirt gets hung up in bits or saw blades for that matter.
