Default New Router Table

Just introducing myself. I am 40 and live in the Seattle area. I have been wood working for about 5 years. I just built my first router table using Bench Dog's cast iron top and the Pro Lift for the Porter Cable 7518. Frankly, I'm a little intimidated by it. So I joined to get some pointers and safety tips.

Hi Dean

This will help turn the speed all the way down, you don't need to run it like a dragster all the time ( full out ) it has all the power you will need..many will say run it at max speed for the small bits but that's not always true..
The feed speed is a real key...

Hello Aaron: Welcome to Router Workshop, Take some time to learn about the system and work slow at first. The tool is incredible as to what it will do. It is easy to try to start with large projects. but get to know it first. Have fun!!
