Default Thanks to all that replied :)

Welp. Common sense got me this time. What I failed to mention was that I made a new vacuum jig from scrap wood to keep the shavings at bay and from going all over the place for this particular application. I disassembled it yesterday and wouldn't you know there is a hole bored right through the jig directly under where I am boring out the new wood. I am going to replace it this evening and I expect this problem will just go away. I guess I'll file this one under D for DUUUUUUUUUUUH!!!!

I'd still use a backer board, and I'd clamp the target piece and backer down securely so they behave as one solid piece

Thanks Stick. Looked at some of those brands and most are scalloped. Only one without any scallops or are saw toothed are the W. L. Fuller series 909 and 060. The 909 series has a center point while the 060 don't since according to Fuller it's guided by its circular rim. But the 060 are $60+ each.

You are right on that Stick. Top notch stuff. I have their tapered bits, brad point, and plexipoint bits, Type B CB, Type C & H CS, collars, drill bushings, & stops. I have some PC forsteners that I may change out incrementally to the Fullers as need arise since I have had great success with Fuller products. But the Bosch and Diablo/Freud look good also.

I've been very pleased w/ the Bosch and Freuds... more so w/ the Freud...
the German made Colts, Bormaxs and Famags are a tough act to follow...
