Default Table and fence position

I don't see this configuration used anywhere. Why not?

think it through and you'll come to the correct conclusion...

Because that would be cutting with the back side of the cutter. The cutter turns clockwise, you should be feeding the material across the right side of the cutter not the left.

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it

The router is in a table. Unless I have a Chinese router this ought to be running the correct direction....into the work piece.

I'm truing up a section of some old Wilsonart flooring so I can inset some repair pieces using lap joints in the floor and repair piece. I need flawlessly parallel pieces. I did a test repair and this setup works like a dream.
Hardest part will be making the cutout in the floor perfectly square.
I glued a teplate to the floor using hot glue. Then I used a 1/4" bit the full depth og the material to make the first cut, then changed my bit to 3/4" to make the lap joint. The repair's corners will be rounded in the floor of course, but I found that with some sandpaper on a block of wood, hand shaping the corners in the repair piece isn't all that hard to do. An $800 repair will save the homeowner from replacing a $9000+ floor.
