New stupid router trick....How to start a fire

Barry Irby
I was routing using a guide bushing. Needed to cut a tiny amount deeper. Pressed the router down firmly. Routed the slot. Somehow there were scorched lines on both sides of the guide slot and the bushing was loose and HOT. No REALLY HOT!

Turns out if you press the collet firmly into the guide bushing it will spin the bushing and loosen it at about 4 million RPM.

Yet another mistake I have made so that you don't have to.....
