Thanks, Barry. Apparently, the ladies who had such a hard time with
this question really wanted to encourage a newbie to practice on a $70
bit. Because they were born knowing everything and never had to ask
anybody; they were using routers when they were in utero. That's why
they're famous and have their own TV shows. Or maybe because their
Chinese bits never cost over $5 so why not experiment? Try acetone, a
torch, sandpaper, it's only $5.

Hmmm ... apparently you were serious. The stuff will peel off with just
your fingernails ... no risk of harming either a $70 bit or a $5 one. It's
just a type of wax. Or you really could just run the bit and, if it didn't
fly off on its own, make a sample cut into a piece of wood. Wear eye
protection whenever running the router and especially when using the above
method for peeling off the protective wax.
