My vacuum system sucks
I have been playing with scraps for the last couple of weeks learning the different router bits I have. I started off today with making the face frame for a bookcase I am building. I got all the pieces cut, pocket holes drilled, the got the table set up to use the tounge & groove bits. I first cut the groove on the side pieces that were 2 1/2" wide, no problems, vac system worked great, then went to cut the 5" wide pieces starting in a little to miss the pocket holes, well thats when I found out how well my vac system works,it sucked the wood into the fence when I got about 1/2" away, it happened so fast & this is the first time I have used a piece this wide, the wood hit the blade & kicked back, bad thing was I was holding the end of the wood with my finger tips & got hit by the blade, thankfully it was just a nick, learned what not to do next time.
Making sawdust & scraps all at the same time
