Default Is this operation dangerous?

The operation shown on the attached photo is a NO NO to me with my limited knowledge

However it was explained on the video I was watching that it is no good to trap the stock between the fence and the bit but in this case it is ok because the cutter is a double sided cutter.

To me a double sided cutter will make the stock fly out faster. Right or wrong?

Thanks

First off that finger is awfully close to the bit.

Second, with the Oak Park's really short fence I try never to cut with the piece up like that. I would cut it on the flat and just move the fence and bit accordingly to get the rabbit I needed, but that's me.

Third, they can do what they want, but I see no need to ever cut like that(in between the fence) as it is a bad habit to get into. SO even if it was technically okay it is not something I would teach anyone.

Don't believe I would be doing something like that, unless he has a bionic hand, or is looking to get one.

Hi kolias

I would not use that finger ,, a good rule NEVER put your fingers with in 4" of the bit...push blocks/sticks only..they are easy to replace but fingers are not..

Here's a link that you want to put in the back of your mind,,this is why you don't want to get your fingers anywhere around the router bit .

First I want to mention that when the guy had his finger so close to the bit in the photo, the router was unplugged. He was just pointing to the bit to say that it is a double cutter.

With my limited knowledge, I was not planning to use such a cut and now that all of you say the same definitely I will never attempt such a cut.

Iím very sorry for Darrylís accident and I hope he recuperates fast and well. Iím planning to keep all my fingers and that is the reason Iím asking so many questions and many more to come. I have set up my router for more than a month now and I only do small and basic cuts to learn and familiarize myself with the equipment. This forum and all the people involved is a treasure to a woodworker.

Thank you all

I'd use my noodle & find a safer way for sure.
Looks like a book photo, what book? so I know not to get it.

HI Guys

You know what that looks like Bob R. ( of the RWS) hand in the photo and the OP table plus look in the background..looks like one of his jigs his hands are bit older now but roll the clock back about 10 years or so..
Plus look at the brass guide in the table Bob used them all the time to choke the hole down..

You are right again bobj3, it is from the RWS videos and here is the link. The particular video in this case is: Corner Cabinet Part1

I must jump in here fellas.The more I poke around in my new hobby the more instances I find of just plain poor and dangerous techniques. Because I try to READ and WATCH and LEARN there are all sorts of things I now know NOT to do. But I see TV DIY people and other "handyman" shows and every now and then one of them will do something that just makes me want to leap up and say STOP!!! And there is one thing in the illustration show with this thread that bugs me....the comment actually that "....the cutter is double-sided so it doesn't make any difference." Huh? Of COURSE the cutter is double sided. So you should expect it can BITE you on either side too. I quickly realized the finger was just for illustraion but the whole set up made me nervous. Thats why I have a well known nickname in my circle. It is Captain Cautious!!!
