Cutters are of various makes, reasonable mid range quality, carbide
The bearings seem to run freely.
Would slowing down the router speed help? Or is there something I can
lubricate the bearing with?
This could also be an indication that your routers' bearings are outta
whack. Are you using the router in a table? If so, you could use a
fence, and hide the bearing from the work just behind the fence. If
you're freehanding it, I'd go with the lighter touch/offset base. Tom
