Burn marks?

Howdy Uall

Does anybody have any tricks when using a Core box router bit to keep from burning when you start and stop before the end of the piece?

Thanks,
Mike

What helps is to make the passes in steps. Leave the very last pass as just a skim pass to clean up the cut. It helps to have a sharp bit.

You can also cut a tapered ramp with a chop saw and attach it to the ends of the boards. Then, with a square base on the router, ramp into and out of the work.
