My router keeps trying to kill me. I don’t know if it’s my fault, or the router’s. It’s a very old Craftsman 315.25070, and every time I attempt anything with it, it either throws a bit at my head, or buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurns. It’s only a 1/4” chuck….I’m starting to think I am biting off -literally-more than I can chew. I wish I’d figured that out prior to chewing a template to pieces. Can anyone recommend a good starter wood. All I have on hand is cheapo pine that keeps tearing out everywhere. It would be nice to actually say, “Yes, those are my box joints”, instead of OUCH. Sigh.
