Router bit burning the wood!!!
I'm a newbie on this site/forum and very eager to further my knowledge with routers and share stuff with you guys. I' m an avid woodworker with a few years of experience, but every time I have to work with a router, the experience isn't very pleasant.
Anyways, here's the story, I bought a 8 amps router with new carbide bits, and every time I router something, the wood gets burnt?!?!? I've tried reducing the speed, feeding the wood faster and slower and using soft and hard wood, but to no avail, the wood gets burnt anyways. The bits are brand new....Could it be that the router isn't strong enough or that I take on too much wood at a time?
p.s. I tried looking at all the other post to find my answer, but I didn't find anything that answered my exact question....or I plainly mist it...I've been known to do that...hahaha
Thanks a million.

Reason: Wrong information on router.
