Default Hold down.

Hello,
I have a small router table, 2 foot wide.
The other day I was routing a lonb piece of mouling which was bowed a small amount,
I could not keep enough pressure on the stock and feed it at the same time.
Is there a item that I can purchase with a spring loaded wheel that I can install
on my table to help me keep pressure on the stock and be constant on my shape?
I thought about a power feeder , but to big and very costly.
Thanks:

feather boards work great for your problem.

Dont forget to live life for fear of death grasp each day and live it to it full otherwise it is pointless.

Depending on what you are doing to the moulding, you could add a narrow block to the fence on either side of the bit so that the contact area is very small. That way the bow would be contacting only perhaps 4-6" of fence length (i.e. only 1 or 2 inches on either side of the bit). Unless the bow is pretty severe, that length should allow you to do what you need to do.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

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