I was wondering if anyone knew of any sure-fire ways to NOT get burn marks in the curves of the peices I'm routering. I am tired of spending 30 minutes or so trying to hand sand out the burns, it's costing me $$$. PLEASE HELP!
Thanks, I'll tryto move a bit faster. I have some wood splitting problems when I go too fast, but I'll try to find a happy medium. I just put a new bit on there as well, so hopefully I can get the hang of it.
You might try taking 2 passes if your work is splitting out. Usually if your router is up to speed, and you score your work with a lighter cut first, you won't have a splitting out problem. However, some woods are prone to splitting, especially if you are cutting against the grain.
