larger Ihan 1 V4-1nches as they will not fit through the sub-base opening, and
will cause damage to the sub-base_ the motor, and could cause serious personal
Injury to the operator.
NOTE; The sub*base Installed on the fixed and plunge bases In this kit have a
sub.base opening of 1 14-1nchea..To use cutting bits with a larger dtameler,
Install a sub-base with a larger opening, sold separately at Sears stores or other
Craftsman outlets,
Z_ WARNING: When using router cutter bits with a cutter diameter larger than
1 V2-1nches, ALWAYS have the speed dial set at number 1 or 2.. Refer to the
Vartabla Speed Selection Chart located on top cap of the motor housing for the
maximum
speeds to use wtlh cutting bit dfamelers. Failure to follow these
instructions
could cause loss of control of the router In the workplace, causing

PLACING THE ROUTER ONTO THE WORKPIECE
AND STARTING THE CUT
NOTE: Making test cuts Is essential with most muting applications. Even with
careful set-ups you won't know exactly how the cut will go until you try It out.
A test cut will give you e feel for the set-up, the router's speed_ the depth of
cut and how the cutter bit reacts to the workplace.
Much of routing Is a trlaFand-arror process of making various adjustments,
followed by test cuts as you become familiar with your router's operational
abllitlesoTo avoid ruining good material, make your test cuts on scrap materials.
Placing your router onto a workptece (stadlng the cut) with a fixed base or a plunge

NOTE: A core box or V-groove bit is often used for muting letters end engraving
objects
Straight bits and ball mills are often used to make relief carvings Veining
bits are used to carve small, intricate details.
NOTE: Making a single deep cut is never advisable
Smaller diameter bits
are easily broken by too much side thrust and torque. Larger bits wtl! cause
a rough cut and be dtfficuft to guide and control. For these reasons,
DO NOT EXCEED 118-1N. DEPTH OF CUT in a single pass.
Z_ WARNING:
Always securely clamp your workplace end keep a firm grip
on the router base with BOTH HANDS at all times. Failure to do so could result
in loss of control ceusfng passible serious personal lnjury..

EDGING
WITH
A PILOT
BIT (Figs.
21 and 21a)
The arbor4ype bile wtth pilots are excellent for edge shaping of any workplace edge that
is eiItler straight, or curved at a cuwature as greal or greater than lhe radius st the bit to
be used The pilot prevents the bit from making too deep a cut; and holding the ptlsl firmly
in cenlact with the warkpiece edge throughout prevenls the cut from becoming loo shatIew
Whenever the workplace thickness, together with the desired depth of cut (as adj_tsted by
router depth setting) are such lhat aety the top part of the edge is to be shaped (leaving at
teaet a 1t16-in thick uncut portion at the bottom), the pitot can ride against Ihe uncul
podian, which sewee ta guide it (sea Fig 21)
I! the workplace is too thin or Ihe bit sol leo low so that there will be no uncut edge to ride
the pilot against, an extra board ta act as a guide must be pieced under the workplace
(see Fig 21a) This "guide" beard must have exactty the same contour - stralghl or curved as the workpieee edge It il is positioned sa that Its edge is flush wilh the workpiece edge.
the bit wltl make a full cut (in as tar as the. bit _adtue) On the ether hand. it the guide ts
pasiiioned as shown in Fig 21a (oat from the workplace edge) lhe bit witl make tees than
a full cut - which wilt alter fhe shape el the linished edge
NOTE:The
size (diameter) of the pilot that Is used determines
the maximum
cut
width that can be made with the pilot against the workplace edge (the smati pilot
exposes all of the bit; the large one reduces this amount by 1/16-in.), Any of the
piloted cutter bits can bs used without a pilot for edge shaping with guides.

CUTS
The router motor and cutler bit rotate clockwise, This requires the feed of the cutter bit to
be from left Io right(see Fig, 22), Feeding Ihe bll from left to right will cause the bl_to pull
the router towards (up against) the workplace
If you feed the router [nlhe opposite d(recUon(right to (ell), the rotatingforce o( the
cutter bll wU(tend to throwthe b)l away from the workplace, making it hard to control;
Ibis Is cafled "Climb-Cutting"; cuttingIn the opposite direction of the proper feed d)reclion
"Climb Cutting" increases thechance for lose of control,resulting in possiblepersona!
injury.When "Climb Cutting" Is required (backing around a corner for example), exercise
extreme caution to maintain controlof lhe router
Because of the high speed of thecutter bit during a proper feeding operation (tall to right),
there Isvery little kickback under normal conditions.However, If the cutler bit stdkes a knot,
an area of hard grain In the wood workp(ece, or a foreignobject, the normat cutting action
could be affected and cause "KIckback'L
This Kickback may cause damage to your workptece, and could cause you to lose conlroI
of the fouler,causingpossible personal Injury, Kickback )s a{waysIn lhe oppo_lle direction
of the clockwise cutter bit rotation, or counterclockwise
To guard against and help prevent Kickback, plan your set-up and direction offeed so
you're always thrustingthe fouler, keeping the sharp edges of the cutterblt conlinuousty

DIRECTION
OF FEED
- INTERNAL
CUTS
(Figs
23 and
23a)
When making an interest cut, such as a groove dado or slot, always have the guide you
ere using with the router (edge guide, straight edge_ board guide) on the right-hand side
of ti_e rosier as you make your ca|, (see Fig 23)
When the guide Is positioned on 1he right hand side of the router, the router travel should
be Item left t.o right and "countercteckwlse _ around ct_rves (see Fig 23) This counterclockwise
action around the curve coutd cause "Cftrnb cutting"
Atways be alert and exercise
extreme caution to maintain cenltol of the _'outer when making this lype oi cut around curves
When the guide is positioned as shown in Fig 23a, the router travel should be Item taft to
right end ctockwtse arousal curves
If there is a choice, the set-up _n Fig 23 is eas}er to use, bul there is the possibilify of
"Climb Cutting"
around curves In either case, Fig 23 or Fig 23a. the sideways thrus_ of

RATE
OFFEED
(Flgs_
24and

The proper rate of teed depends on severa_ factors: the hardness and moisture content
of the workptece,the depth of cut, and the cutting diameler of theblL When you are
cutting shallow grooves In soft woods such as plne, you may use a faster rate of feed
When making deep cute in hardwoods such as oak, you should use a slower rate of feed
FEEDINGTOO
FAST (Flgo 24)
Clean and smooth f_nishedcuts can only
be achieved when the cutterbit Is rotating
at a relatively h_ghspeed, takingvery smal$
bites, producing Uny,clean cut chips
Forcing the teed of the cutter bit forward too
fast s_ows the RPM of the cutter bit, and the bit
fakes biggerbites as it rotates, Bigger bites
