    Smile Getting rid of router bit burn - Scraped clean

    I have a few small areas that burned yesterday while routing some indents in my table legs. Other than wearing my fingertips to the bone does anyone have any suggestions on what the best way to remove these might be?

    End grain eh? A scraper would be the first thing I would try.

    Can you be more specific? Not sure exactly what you mean by "Make one for the indent."

    rennie i had sent you a pm, but i hadnt seen the pics.. what she is saying i think is to make one out of a old saw blade and basically you need to have it bent in a shape of a allen wrench so you can handle it from above but get into the corner think a junk screw drive flatted and sharpened then bent at 90 degrees to get at your corner then scrape off the burn with it.
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    I'll try this.

    This whole thing is actually my own fault. I was not paying attention to the depth of the bit and cut the indents twice as deep as they should be. They should be just over 1/16" and mine are just over 1/8". Had they been shallower I would not be having this problem.

    Rennie what about the sanding mops. http://www.stockroomsupply.com/The_Sanding_Mop.php

    They come in smaller sizes for dremmel tools as well

    There is a few videos through this site that show you how to use them.

    Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

    This looks interesting. Might run over to the borg to see if there is anything like it since waiting for delivery would be inconvenient.
