  • Page 15 Secure the workpiece. Plug the router into a power source. Hold the router firmly with both hands. Turn on the router and let the motor build to its full speed. Feed the cutter slowly into the workpiece. Note: Do not let the cutter contact the workpiece before starting the router and allowing it to devetop full speed.
  • Page 16 When routing, the cutter rotates clockwise. Therefore, you should feed the router into the workpiece from left to right. When you feed the router from left to right, the rotation of the cutter pulls the router against the workpiece. If you feed the router in the opposite direction, the rotational forces of the spinning bit tend to throw the router away from the workpiece.

    The best rate of feed is one that does not slow down the router motor more than one-third of its no load speed. If you feed the router too fast, it will take large chips out of the wood and leave gouge marks. If you feed the router too slowly, it will scorch or burn the wood.
