    Default Router table help set up

    Hi guys, I keep getting this little dip at the the end of my cuts when routing rail and stiles, not to sure what to adjust.

    Thanks

    It is called trailing snipe. Your outfeed fence is set too far back. The other cause could be your infeed and outfeed fences are not parallel forming a concave VEE, but it's probably just the outfeed being too far back. As you pass the workpiece across the cutter, there will be a gap between the workpiece and the outfeed fence. As soon as the workpiece leaves the infeed fence for the last ~10mm, it is now able to drop and close the gap between the outfeed fence creating the snipe.

    Is there a bearing on the cutter? Like a Kuffy said the outfeed fence is too far back so when the timber comes off the bearing, it drops back to the outfeed fence.
    A ruler across the infeed and outfeed fences should JUST be touching the bearing.

    Thanks kuffy, makes sense. I will shim the outfeed out a smidge and see how it goes

    Cheers

    If you are using a bearing guided bit, the in-feed fence, out-feed fence and the face of the bearing all need to be in line -- use a long straight edge to check.

    +1 for what Ian say's above ,test routing with your fence set is a good practice as I have learn't in the past.
