|Andrew||Most raised panel bits should be run at about 12K rpm. The bit manufactuer shold have the running speed listed. Reduce the rpms of the router.|

Use a safety guard over your bit, wear eye protection, and dont take off more than 1/4" in a pass. Make multiple passes to get to your finish depth. If you start cutting on the end grain and work your way around you should also reduce tear out.|

Raised Panel Cutting Speed
I recently obtained a raised panel cutting set and set up the 1 1/2 inch panel cutter in my Milwaukee 1 3/4 hp router on a table. The speed seems too fast and cutting action a little too excessive to be relaxed with. Am I doing something dangerous.
