Jalien21 Posted June 12, 2006 Report Share Posted June 12, 2006 okay. well, the time has come for me to rout the edges of my guitar don't worry, it's all glued on and the sides are square and everything) and i am always very fearful about this sort of thing. i'll admit it- routers scare me. i have trouble controlling them and i find that i have a decent rate of failure. but i don't even care about tear-outs or anything like that. what really worries me is the bit breaking off or falling out or something. for my edges, i'm using a porter-cable 1/2" radius roundover bit. it's a pretty big piece of metal. and it's gonna be spinning at 20+k rpms. right in front of my body. i'm not gonna figure the physics of that out, but if something that size breaks off spinning that fast less than a foot away from my body, it's not going to look good. are my fears founded? or am i just being silly, and should just join the project guitar router-loving community? if someone could comfort my fears, i would appreciate that. or even confirm. i want to know i'm not crazy. thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
