Good Evening Friends,
Routing an edge profile on delicate workpieces can cause bad tearout and even ruin a valuable piece.

What can you do to eliminate this from happening?

Good Evening Friends,
I head off this problem by using a technique borrowed from ripping plywood, where a scoring blade is sometimes used.

Before I even plug in the router I scribe a line along the workpiece edge, scoring the material at the height to match the bit. A marking gauge fitted with a steel cutter rather than the pin, makes the scoring task easier.

Though if you are using a power feeder a simple climb cut does the job.
