OPERATION RqUTING _ or case of operation and maintaining proper control , your touter has two handles , one on each side ofthe router baser When using your router hold it firmly with both hands as shown infigumm7 . Turn routeron and letmotor buildtoits full speed , then gradually feed cutter into workplece . Remain alertand watch what you are doing . DO NOT operatemuter When fatigued , PROPER FEEDING The right feed is neither too fast nor too slow .

On the otherhand , ifthe bit is a largeone , thecutts deep or thewood ishard to cut , the proper feed may be a very slow oneoThen , again , a cross - graincutmay require a slowerpace than an identicalwith grain cut inthe same workpisCeo There Is no fixed rule . You will team by experience ° . , by listening to the router motor and by feeling the progress of cach cut . If at all possible , always test a outon a scrap piece of the workpiece wood , beforehand . RATE OF FEED IMPORTANT : The whole " secret " of professionalroutingand edge shaping lies inmaking a careful set - upfor the cutto be = [ jii made and In sclcctlng the proper rate of feed . FORCE FEEDING Clean , smooth routingand edge shaping can be done only when the bit is revolving at a relatively high speed end is takingvery small bites to producetiny , cleanlysevered chips . If your muter is forced to move forward too fast , the RPM of the bit becomes slower than normal in relationto itsforward movement . . As a result , the bit must take bigger bites as it revoiveso " Bigger bites " mean bigger chips , and a roughcr J finish . Biggcr chips also require more powcr , which could result in the router motor becoming overloaded . TOO SLOW Fig , 8 Under extreme force - feeding conditions the relative RPM of the bit can become so slow - . _ nd the bites it has to take so TOO SLOW FEEDING large - - that chips will bepadiatly knocked off ( ratherthan fully it is also possibleto spoil a cutby movingthe router forward cutoff ) , with resultin _ splintering and gouging of theworkplace . too slowly ° When it is advanced into the work too slowly , a Sea Figure 8 . revolving bit does not dig into new wood fast enough to take Your Craftsman Router is an extremely high - speed tool a bite ; instead , itsimplyscrapesaway sawdust - _ ikepadicles .

The smaller bits - - , , , H , especia } [ y those only ! / 16 inch in diameter - - are easily GU , DOEUTS , DE broken off when subjected to too much side thrust A large enough bit may not be broken off , but if the cut is too deep a R _ OTATION . _ ( ' _ , _ rough cut will result - - and it may be very difficult to guide and control the bit as desired For these reasons , we recommend that you do not exceed 1 / 8 inch depth of cut in a single pass , regardless of the bif size or the softness or condition of the workptece _ See Figure 9 GUIDE " To make deeper cuts it is therefore necessary to make as many successive passes as required , lowering the bit 1 / 8 j . . . . . . inch for each new pass In order to save time , do all the cutting necessary at one depth setting , before lowering the bit forthe next pass This wtllatso assure a uniform depth when the final pass _ scompleted . See Figure 10 . ROTATION DIRECTION OF FEED AND THRUST THRUST FEED The routermotor and bffrevolve ina clockwisedirection . This gives the tool a slfght tendency to twist ( tn your hands ) in a GUIDE INSIDE Fig , 11 counterclockwise direction , especially when the motor revs , , , i i i up ( as at starting ) . Because of the extremely high speed of bit rotation during a " proper feeding " operation , there is very little kickback to contend with under normal conditions . However , should the bit strike a knot , hard grain , foreign object , etc . that would ROUTING affect the normal progress of thecuttingaction , there will be a slight kickback - - - sufficient to spoil the trueness of your cut Whenever you are routing a groove , your travelshould be In if you are not prepared . Such a kickback is always in the a direction that places whatever guide you are using at the direction opposite to the direction of bit rotation . right - hand side . In short , when the guide is positioned as shown in the first partof Figure 11 , tool travel should be _ eft TO guard against such a kickback , plan your set - up and to right and counterclockwise around curves . When the guide direction of feed so that youwill always be thrusting thetool - - is positionedas shown in the second part of Figure 11 tool tohold it against whatever you are using to guide the cut - - in travel should be right to left and clockwise around curves . If the same direction that the teadingedge of the bit is moving there is a choice , the first set - up is generally the easiest to In shod , the thrust should be in a direction that keeps the use In eithercase , the sideways thrust you use is against the sharp edges of the bit continuously biting straight into new guide .
