Router TableIn order to use large router bits safely (plus to achieve the best results), you would be wise to adjust the speed on your router appropriately.

But how do you know the proper speed to set for each and every router bit? Is there a speed listing on the shank of the bit or on the packaging when you buy the bit?

Well, there is a rather basic rule, but it goes a bit deeper than just the general guidelines. Learn how to choose the proper speed for your different router bits in How to Determine Proper Router Bit Speeds. You'll work safer and achieve better results on your woodworking projects when you use the proper motor speeds with your router bits.
