It's easy to prevent mishaps if you take a few simple precautions.
1) Rockler recommends using 1/2'' shank router bits whenever possible.
1/2'' shanks provide better stability with less vibration to produce a smoother
cut and longer cutter life. 2) Make multiple light passes rather than one heavy cut. 3) Install your router bit so that 90% of the shank is inside the
collet. Here's a rule of thumb: fully insert the bit, then pull it back
1/16 to 1/8 of an inch. 4) Use a router table whenever possible. 5) When using large diameter bits, reduce the RPM of your router.
Then test your set-up on scrap lumber. 6) Always follow your router manufacturer's recommendations.

With the addition of the router featherboard kit I purchased, I was able to setup my table router to safely "plane" some 1/8" thick strips of red oak I cut using my thin rip table saw jig. The extra length the Straight Router Bit gave me was just the extra I needed. Thanks Rockler!

Fine bit. Worked as expected. A bit long however in my PC 690 router. With the standard PC base, I barely had enough router motor housing inside the base to hold it steady.

Nice clean dadoes in hardwood. The bit could be longer. I'm using it in a Dewalt plunge router mounted in a table. Not much of the shank is inside the collet to get the depth of cut I need.

As usual only the best quality products that I have found. Repeat customer and will be as long as I dabble in woodworking.
Purchased the 5/8" bit for a specialty inlay flooring job. Outperformed 2 other previosuly used bits by a long shot. Best quality bit I have used in 15 years. I will never go back to another- cut my use time in half.

I'm building a router table and this bit was just the thing to tear through my Formica and plywood tabletop.

Didn't work well at all. The broke at the collet/shank junction in a CNC operation. broke at less than 4 linear feet at a slow feedspeed. well under the chip calculator ranges. Returned the broken ones for credit and the new unused ones.

I have purchased two of the 1/4" straight bits with the 1/2" shaft. The first one broke. I thought it was operator error as I was new to router work. I assumed that I had fed the work bit mounted to router on a router table too fast or took too deep of a cut. The second bit has been "babied". It also broke. I cannot recommend this bit.

I'll be the first to admit I have to work on my routering skills. This bit was very solid for me and made easy work of a daunting project. This bit made me look good.
