Router Table Safety

Although most router bits are small, they can be potentially dangerous and should deserve your attention and respect.

Push blocks and safety devices1 Use push sticks or a push block to position your hands a safe distance from the router bit.

2 Use large-diameter bits only in a router table. Using bits over 25mm Ø (diameter) in a handheld router can possibly cause you to lose control of the tool and harm yourself or bystanders.

3 Always wear a dust mask as well as eye and hearing protection.

4 Take light cuts. Heavy cuts invite kickback. If necessary, move the fence closer to the bit or switch to a larger guide bearing/bush.

5 Use a featherboard (anti-kickback device) to support the workpiece against the router table and/or fence.

6 Never climb-cut. Always feed the stock from right to left. Against the rotation of the router bit. (see illustration)

7 Avoid routing small stock. Instead, rout a larger piece and cut it to size afterwards. If you absolutely have to profile a small piece, build an suitable jig or secure the workpiece.

8 Always use a guard. If the fence didn’t come with a guard, make your own.

9 Never start the router with the bit in contact with the material.

10 Don’t force the router bit or overload the router. Excessive heat is an enemy.

11 Secure/fasten the router in the base before starting/switch on the router.

Router bit to collet fit12 Don’t bottom out the bit in the collet or partially insert the bit. Instead, completely insert the bit, and then back off approximately 2 mm. At least 2/3 's of the router bit shank should be inside the collet.

13 Be sober and not under the influence of medicine that causes a lack of concentration

14 Tidy up your workshop to ensure the ability to move freely with enough room around the router table
