If the work spins rather than the tool, this is the place for you.

What a laugh I had today should have been following the pattern Must have moved the router too quick. I now know why it's called the woodchuck.
I hope I get better at it,

Maybe you plunged the router too deep for the first pass and the blank jumped ?

It was because I was watching the roller and not the cutter I thought it was following o.k. but I was traversing to fast ,but I agree I was going too deep.
However if it had cut the pair of skittles, with knobs on top, the deep cut for the knob in the middle would have meant that the piece of wood would have fallen in half The pattern did not move. I wiil use the stop on the carriage to control depth of cut
I get older and not much wiser. The tree stake is the worst wood I have ever used, but good to practice on
Just a thought What sort of rev per min. should the spindle turn I have the motor at top speed with the leadscrew geared 4 tpi and the half nut off the screw
