Thank you for sharing!

Alex says:

Just a quick note, make sure to route in the OPPOSITE direction that the router bit spins, unlike explained in this video. There is a time and place to climb cut (routing in the same direction) but do not follow the arrow on the router – VCG, you should correct that in the video.

Andre Noble says:

I think builders and construction workers are amazing service workers when you think about it.

I really enjoyed your show on using a router. You did a masterful job on getting the average person to learn how to use the router. Thank you

Hobby Organist says:

I have that same router, the kit with the plunge base, great deal!
I usually do a light climb cut first, because if you try cutting with the forward direction of the arrow all in one pass you very often can tear a chunk right out if the grain in the board happens to angle towards the edge.
Another option is use a larger bearing first, then switch to the smaller bearing and do it in 2 passes if there's any doubt about the grain direction.
That bearing people have to make sure will ride on the edge of the board, if it's too low or high there's little to stop it from digging right into the board.
Those bearings need to be checked a lot and lubricated, because they DO come apart, the bearings inside are so tiny, that when they wear out or burn up the whole thing comes apart and you might not even notice until your cut edge suddenly starts veering off into the board ruining it, keep them lubed, let the bearing cool between cuts, dont really PUSH hard against it either. The holding screw can also come loose so make sure its TIGHT!

Scott Darrow says:

Thanks Vince. Good introduction. Shopping for my 1st router. I'll be looking at larger units than I previously have. If you happen to see this could you recommend a couple of models? I understand this video was made quite some time ago so I get it if you don't see this comment. God Speed. ScottyD

Cornelius Agrippa says:

First time you use a router, its a scary tool, there is so much power close to your hands and face, but keep a firm grip and go steady and you soon build confidence.
