I purchased a cheap laminate counter top that I will be using as the top for my miter saw workstation. I want to rout a dado on the top to receive a T-track which will allow me to add a stop block. I want to minimize tear out when routing. Any advice on how I can rout the dado without chipping the laminate? Router speed, bit type, etc

I have a table saw, unfortunately the countertop has a backsplash attached to it so I can’t run it flat across my table saw which is partly why I have to use the router

The lower the RPM, the longer the bit will stay sharp.
Laminate is very abrasive, but it cut's very well with a sharp bit. As long as the bit is sharp, it really won't chip at all.
