Recently I completed several small clocks. I put a decorative edge on the
bases with a 5/32" roman ogee bit mounted in a 1.5hp router in a table.
Unfortunately, I had some burning issues with it, especially on the cherry
version (only on the end grain). What surprises me is that this problem didn't
show up on the white oak version and only mildly on the poplar. Is this simply
a case of a dull bit? I've tried different feed rates with no change in
results. I really need to finish the router table extension to mount my pc to,
this one is an old craftsman that has served me well but I wonder if it could
just be underpowered (no matter the feed rate the motor bogged down).
