Router Safety Tips:

  • Always wear eye and ear protection.
  • Always use properly sharpened bits.
  • Never use bits that are dull or damaged.
  • Shank must be completely inserted into collet and then backed-off approximately 1/16".
  • Don't "bottom-out" bit in collet.
  • Never partially insert bit into collet. Minimum 1" of shank needs to be in collet.
  • Tighten bit securely and recheck periodically for possible slippage or "run-out" due to wear.
  • Keep collet clean and replace if worn.
  • Never start the router with the bit in contact with wood.
  • Always feed your work or router in the proper direction against the bit rotation.
  • Don't force feed the bit or overload your router, Feed at a constant moving speed to avoid burning the wood.
  • Do not face tool's discharge when operating.
  • Always unplug router when changing bits or making adjustments.
  • Use a router table and fence whenever possible.
  • Make sure your work piece is properly secured and use push blocks, sticks and featherboards whenever possible.
  • Keep all your bits, bearings and assemblies clean, lubricated, and securely fastened. To avoid damage, store them properly in a pouch, box or tray.
  • The bigger the bit, the lower RPM recommended (see chart).

Slightly undersized by ()

I'm reviewing the 23/32" bit (116-1105). While a great bit for giving flat bottoms and clean edges, the bit is a little undersized. With a digital caliper, I measured it to 45/64". This makes it too tight for 23/32" plywood dadoes. After routing, I have to sand or plane the sides of the dado, to make the plywood fit.

Great bit for railings by ()

I purchased the 1" diameter bit (116-1605) and use it for cutting a groove in custom railings I set on 3/8" x 1" steel bars. It works great on everything from pine to oak, and a couple of exotics my clients have requested. It's not quite up to the challenge of IPE, but I haven't found a bit that is. The groove is super clean and square and is ready to go right off of the router table, no additional work necessary.
