Aubuchon Hardware Tip: There are two speed factors to be concerned with when using a router. The first is how quickly you cut from piece to piece. Too much cutting at once will overheat the router bit and shorten its lifespan. The second speed factor is how quickly you feed an individual piece of material to the router bit. Go too fast and you overwhelm the bit's ability to remove the cut material. Conversely, go too slowly and you risk burning the wood. The key is to feed material at just the right speed, and allow enough downtime between cuts, protecting both the router bit, and your wood.
