The two keys are:

1. Play around with it so you understand the effect of different adjustments.
2. Like Shane said, use scrap to get everything dialed in just right before you start cutting on your good stock.

Oh, and…..

3. Be sure to stop routing when you get to the last slot on the left. A sharp dovetail bit cuts aluminum rather nicely. (DAMHIKT)
