JFPNCM All good points. You might also consider routing a piece slightly longer than needed so you have the luxury of cutting off a 1/2" or so that might get sniped.

Reminds one of the old con we played as kids, "snipe hunting".

Garyk Not sure which end your snipe is on but the shim trick works well to even out the "cut" side and the "uncut" side but the trailing end will sometimes move slightly toward the bit if the front end moves a hair away from the fence. If there is too much pressure against the very end of the board it will cause the trailing end to kick in slightly toward the bit and cause snipe. Make sure the board stays tight against the outfeed side of the fence.

Bodger96 If none of us ever made mistakes none of us would ever learn. Keep on doing John, it is the best way to learn.

Take a stack of playing cards and lay them down against a known thickness. Press down and slide cards off stack against the known thickness until stack is flush. divide thickness measurement by number of cards. You have a known thickness I like the plastic playing cards the best

Knothead47 Herb, I have a feather board for the TS. I'll see if I can adapt it to the router table. I inserted the rod/spacer last night and will try the router tomorrow, Got a lot to do around the house today- mainly, clean it. Wife still works and I get to play Mandy the Maid. No, I don't wear a frilly apron!
