In response to “What is it exactly you are routing so deep?”

I’m routing mortises for a critical joint on some chairs. The mortise pal jig takes some depth away and I feel I need to get at least an inch of depth in the mortise. My horizontal travel is only about an inch. To avoid too much horizontal stress on the collet, I am doing more up and down motion that wide ways morion and only going sideways to clean up.
