A- Get a face shield
B- Understand the feed direction.
C- Get a feel for your router by starting with a simple straight bit ¼ or ½ shank and junk wood and do << small passes >> removing no more than 1/8 at a time against a straight edge or something.
D- Note the offset of router bit cut edge to your straight edge.
E- Practice and you’ll be good to go.

1. Start watching The Router Workshop... either on TV or on The Woodworking Channel.
2. Get a book or two About Routers.
3. Read this forum and ask questions to get answers.
4. Have fun.
5. Be sure bit is really tightened good before turning on.
