Default router speed

My PC 7539 has five different speeds on it. When I am making raised panels I am using a large cutter. What speed is best suited for large diameter bits?

Large raised panel bits should also only be used with the router mounted in a table. I have the PC 7518 and use Sommerfeld's 3-1/2" raised panel bits and James is right-on about the slowest speed.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

It is all about periferal speed. Small cutters should run fast, large diameter cutters to run more slowly. I would use a large router in a table for this process.
