The bit is a 1/4" bit, and the collet is 1/4",
I read into it further and there was an explanation about dropped router bit syndrom, basically from over tightening.
so i re-adjusted and re tightened, i also placed the wood i was cutting on a 2x4 instead of a crappy mdf table. and it seemed to cut multiple passes without sliding out. yes the bit doesnt go through the base plate, but the mm off shaving i just break of and then sand the edge.
im picking up my 1/2" collect AEG tomorrow, with a really good table, as i noticed most intricate framing bits are in 1/2" not 1/4", i was hoping to do intricate frames with hand router, that seems like its not the case.
I also read the hierarchy of bit quality is: Freud > Infinity > Linbide > Triton(premium) > Milwaukee/Bosch > TradeTools > Ultra
Can anyone tell me where Yonico fit into this?
