Hi Ed

This what I suggest>>

1st. make a clear plasic guard that sits over the bit,once you have that in place put the pin in place and keep the stock to the pin and with care move the stock into the bit until the stock is on the bearing, once your on the bearing push the stock around keeping the stock to the bit..

Here's just two ways to get the job done ▼

When routing the edge, turn the workpiece counter-clockwise.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
