Gerry and Barry, This sounds alot like the post "Flying Wood" where the workpiece was located (improperly)
between the bit and the fence. The workpiece should be "closest to the operator, the bit next and the fence farthest away from the operator as Gerry shows in his excellent diagram post #14... Flying Wood.
To set the router table as a"jointer" the infeed or right hand side fence must be offset slightly from the outfeed fence, which is on the left side. To accomplish this, one could space the outfeed fence (left side), away from the main fence, placing thin washers about 1/16th inch, between the back side of the wood fence and the main support fence.
So, when all is said and done, the outfeed side of the table router fence is closest to the operator and, the infeed side is about 1/16th in behind that. This permits 1/16th inch of stock to be removed with each pass.
NEVER locate the workpiece solely between the bit and the fence. This is an invitation to kickback everytime, hence flying wood. This proceedure is only used to rout a dado or other cut on one side of a larger workpiece and is not a thru cut. This is a dado from the blind side. That's my thought on the subject. Bill
