Your router has a precision-built
electric motor and it should only be connected
to a 120-volt, 60-Hz AC power supply (normal household current). Do not
operate on direct current (DC). This large voltage drop will cause a loss of power
and the motor will overheat. If the router does not operate when plugged into a
correct 120-volt, 60-Hz AC only outlet, check the power supply. This router has
an 8-ft., 2-wire power cord (no adapter needed).

THE ROUTER
ONTO THE WORKPIECE
AND STARTING
THE CUT
NOTE: Making test cuts is essential with most routing applications. A test cut
will give a feel for the set-up, the router's speed, the depth of cut, and how the
cutting bit reacts to the workpiece.
Much of routing is a trial-and-error
process of making various adjustments,
followed by test cuts. To avoid ruining good material, make test cuts on
scrap materials.
How you place your router onto a workpiece (starting the cut) with a fixed base
or a plunge base depends on the type of routing you are going to produce: Edge
Routing or Internal Routing, as discussed on the following pages.
DEEP CUTS
The proper cutting depth for each pass is always determined

by the material,
the
Always make several progressively deeper cuts: start at one depth and then make
several passes, each time increasing the cutting depth, until your desired depth is
reached.
Making a cut that is too deep will stress the router motor and the cutter bit,
and it may burn the workpiece and dull the cutter bit. It could also "grab" too
much of the workpiece and cause you to lose of control of the router, causing
serious accident.

To be certain that your depth settings are correct, always make test cuts in
scrap material similar to your workpiece before beginning the final cutting
operation.
Remember,
knowing the right depth for each
cut comes with routing experience.
EDGE ROUTING OR INTERNAL ROUTING
For ease of operation and to maintain proper
control, your router has two handles, one on
each side of the router base. When operating
the router, always hold it firmly with both
hands (Fig. 17 and 17a).

_, WARNING:
Do not use large cutter bits
for freehand routing. Using large cutter bits
when freehand routing could cause loss of
control or create other hazardous conditions
Fig. 21
that could result in personal injury. If using
a router table, large bits should be used for
edging only.
_'--
When used freehand, the router becomes
a flexible and versatile tool. This flexibility
makes it possible to easily rout signs, relief
sculptures, etc.
When freehand

1.
Draw or lay out the pattern on the workpiece.
2.
Choose
3.
Follow the instructions for INTERNAL ROUTING, and rout the pattern in two
or more passes. Do not exceed 1/8-in. depth of cut in a single pass. This will
help provide better control, as well as serve as a guide on the next passes.
the appropriate
bit.
NOTE: A core-box bit or V-groove bit is often used for routing letters and
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 will cause a rough
cut and be difficult to guide and control. For these reasons, do not exceed 1/8in. depth of cut in a single pass.
A_, WARNING:
Always securely
clamp your workpiece
in place, and keep a firm
grip on the router base with both hands at all times. Failure to do so could result
in loss of control causing possible serious personal injury.
EDGING WITH A PILOT BIT (Figs. 22 and 22a)
The arbor-type bits with pilots are excellent
for edge shaping of any workpiece edge that
is either straight or curved at a curvature as
great or greater than the radius of the bit to be
used. The pilot prevents the bit from making
an excessively deep cut; and holding the pilot
firmly in contact with the workpiece edge
throughout prevents the cut from becoming
too shallow.

Top Edge Shaping
Whenever the workpiece thickness, together
with the desired depth of cut (as adjusted by
router depth setting) are such that only the
top part of the edge is to be shaped (leaving
at least a 1/16-in. thick uncut portion at the
bottom), the pilot can ride against the uncut
portion, which serves to guide it (Fig. 22).
Fig. 22a
Whole Edge Shaping
Guide Board
If the workpiece is too thin or the bit is set so
low that there will be no uncut edge against
WHOLE EDGE SHAPING
which to ride the pilot, an extra board must be
placed under the workpiece to act as a guide (see Fig. 22a). This "guide" board
must have exactly the same contour - straight or curved - as the workpiece
edge. If it is positioned so that its edge is flush with the workpiece edge, the bit
will make a full cut (in as far as the bit radius). On the other hand, if the guide
is positioned so that it extends beyond the edge of the workpiece), the bit will
make less than a full cut - which will alter the shape of the finished 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 workpiece edge (the small pilot
exposes the entire bit; the large one reduces this amount by 1/16-in.). Any of the
piloted cutter bits can be used without a pilot for edge shaping with guides.
_, WARNING: Always securely clamp your workpiece and keep a firm grip on
the router base with both hands at all times. Failure to do so could result in loss
of control causing
possible serious
personal
injury.
FEEDING THE ROUTER (Fig .23)
The secrets to professional
routing are a careful set-up for
the cut, selecting the proper
depth of cut, knowing how
the cutter bit reacts in your
workpiece, and the rate and
direction of feed of the router.
Fig. 23

)
(see Fig. 23). If the router is fed

in the opposite direction (right
to left), the rotating force of the cutter bit will tend to throw the bit away from the
workpiece.
This is called "Climb-Cutting."
27683
ManuaLRevised_11-0120
"Climb-Cutting"
may cause loss of control,
Page 31
possibly resulting in personal injury. When "Climb-Cutting"
is required (e.g.,
backing around a corner), exercise extreme caution to maintain control of the
router. The high speed of the cutter bit during a proper feeding operation (left
to right), results in very little kickback under normal conditions. However, if the
cutter bit strikes a knot, an area of hard grain, or a foreign object, "Kickback"
may result. Kickback may damage your workpiece and could cause you to lose
control of the router, possibly causing personal injury. Kickback is always in the
opposite direction of the clockwise cutter bit rotation, or counterclockwise.
To guard against and help prevent Kickback, plan your set-up and direction
of feed so that you're always keeping the sharp edges of the cutter bit biting
straight into uncut wood. Always inspect your workpiece for knots, hard grain,
and foreign objects.
WARNING: Kickback causes the power tool to jerk back toward the user,
causing possible loss of control and serious injury. Always take precautions
against kickback as described in the operator's manual.
DIRECTION
OF FEED - INTERNAL
CUTS (Figs. 24 and 24a)
When making an internal cut, such as a
groove, dado, or slot, always try to have the
guide you are using with the router (edge
guide, straight edge, board guide), on the
right-hand side of the router as you make the
cut (Fig. 24).
When the guide is positioned on the
right hand side of the router, the router
travel should be from left to right and
"counterclockwise"
around curves (see Fig.
24). This counterclockwise
action around the
curve could cause "Climb cutting". Always be
alert and exercise extreme caution to maintain
control of the router when making this type of
cut around curves.
When the guide is positioned as shown in Fig.
24a, the router travel should be from left to
right and clockwise around curves.
If there is a choice, the
easier to use, but there

Page 32
RATE OF FEED (Figs. 25 and 25a)
The proper rate of feed depends on several factors: the hardness and moisture
content of the workpiece, the depth of cut, and the cutting diameter of the bit.
When cutting shallow grooves in soft woods such as pine, you may use a faster
rate of feed. When making deep cuts in hardwoods such as oak, you should use
a slower rate of feed.
FEEDING
TOO QUICKLY
(Fig. 25}
Fig. 25
Clean and smooth cuts can only be achieved
when the cutter bit is rotating at a relatively
high speed, taking very small bites, producing
tiny, clean-cut chips.
Bit Shank
Forcing the feed of the cutter bit forward
too quickly slows the rotational speed of the
cutter bit, and the bit takes bigger bites as it
rotates. Bigger bites cause bigger chips and
a rough finish. This forcing action can also
cause the router motor to overheat.
Under extreme force-feeding
conditions, the
speed can become so slow and the bites
become so large that chips become partially
cut off, causing splintering and gouging of
the workpiece.
The router will make clean, smooth cuts if
allowed to run freely without the overload of
forced feeding. You can detect forced feeding
by the sound of the motor. Its usual high-pitched
whine will sound lower and stronger as it loses
speed. Holding the router against the workpiece
will also be strained and harder to do.
FEEDING
TOO SLOWLY

TOO SLOW
(Fig. 25a)
When you feed the cutter bit too slowly, the rotating cutter bit does not cut into
new wood rapidly enough to take a bite. Instead, it scrapes away sawdust-like
particles. This scraping produces heat, which can glaze, burn, and mar the cut in
the workpiece and, in extreme cases, overheat the cutter bit.

With almost no load on the motor, the cutter bit has a tendency to bounce
off the sides of the cut in the workpiece, producing a cut with a rippled finish
instead of clean straight sides.
