Today I had kick back on router table. I am wondering what is the cause of this kick back.
This is the first time for me to use trim bit(whiteside#2715 which has 1-1/2 cutting length and 7/8 cutting diameter with top and bottom bearings). I cut the work piece by band saw roughly and tried to trim it by using this bit with template.
I slowed down the speed of router to 10,000 rpm because this bit was quite big trim bit.
The thickness of work piece was about 3/4. As soon as the work piece touch to the bit, the kick back happened and
work piece flied to the right side. The difference between the template and the work piece was about 1/8.
I am not sure that I feed the work piece in climb cut direction, because the kick back happened as soon as the bit touched
to the work piece. My assumption to the cause of this kick back is I tried to cut too much at once. ( as I mentioned the amount to be trim was 1/8. ) If my assumption is correct, how much is the ideal(safe) amount of one cut?
