Dangerous Occurrence - anyone else experienced this
I was happily routing, using my cutter to cut a piece of pine for a cupboard door, Cutting across the grain,making a nice finish; this was the second piece. I cut from both side, using a fence, - when I reached the end of the cut in the middle, the off-cut (10 x 22 cms) flew from the router, across the room and smashed into the wall, at high speed. I lurched forward, but did not fall (fortunately).
I had been using the router for a few hours, had made numerous cuts, but the wood took off and could have seriously injured someone. The router was a TRA001 using a small cutter at high speed.
As it is I have a hole in my wall and no idea what I did wrong, but am seriously worried.
Help very much appreciated
