Introduction: Conventional Vs. Climb Cutting

Conventional cutting is when the workpiece moves against the direction of the cutting bit.

  • All manual router work must be done with conventional cuts, at all times.

Climb cutting is when the workpiece moves in the same direction as the bit.

  • This is dangerous, and not allowed on the router table.
  • Climb cutting is only allowed on CNC routers.
