14 Fuss-free router-bit setup



Shim your fence for disappearing edges

When routing certain edge profiles on your router table, such as the door lip shown, the bit removes enough stock that the profiled edge no longer bears against the outfeed fence. In these cases, shim the outfeed fence-we attached 1/32"—thick plastic laminate with double-faced tape-to provide a bearing surface for the workpiece beyond the bit. Without this, you'll end up cutting a snipe-like gouge when the edge clears the infeed fence.
