Joe,

Hopefully you rout the edge while it is still attached to a larger board. If you could post a picture or a sketch of what you're trying to do, that would be helpful. (you may have to make a couple of extra posts before it will let you attach a picture)

Hi Joe - Welcome to the forum
Not sure that the 10 post rule applies to pics. I think it is just for links.
Without knowing exactly what you are trying to accomplish my first thought was for a zero clearance fence. Depending on the length of the workpiece (I'm thinking you are doing the endgrain on a narrow piece of stock) a large push block or coping sled would probably work.
If it is just a small piece overall, a small parts jig would be in order.
Really need a bit more of a description to get to a definitive response.

John Schaben

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Following on from John's response, either of the following could be a solution.

Cheers
