I was making some long cabinet double doors (6'6") and had a rabbet on both edges where they meet in the middle. I cut the rabbet on the router table. As I slid the door along the table I pressed down on the door to make sure it maintained a solid contact with the table top, and therefore a consistant depth cut for the rabbet.

When I got through cutting all the doors I realized that by pressing down on the door I had inavertantly caused the bit to gradually move down in the collet, thereby causing the very condition I was trying to prevent.

Obviously I had tightened the bit the way I normally would, but the downward pressure was something I hadn't counted on. Should/could I have done this diferrently?
