...must be run at a reduced speed.

True?

Please expand your answer beyond a simple yes/no.

No, it depends on the profile, and indeed whether you have a variable speed router (I do not). I have used several successfully, the biggest about a 4 inch diameter( I might be exagerating a bit!).

However even if you had a variable speed router there are some raised profiles where full steam ahead would be perfectly fine.

Sorry about yesterdays puzzler, I must look at my copy of Walton next Im at the shop!

Thanks for the fun Ralph!

Since it is the diameter of the cutter that determines whether it should be run at reduced speeds and vertical panel raising bits are no bigger in diameter than most edge profiling bits, the answer would be "no".

How about....

Not necessarily

I always take several passes when I cut raised panels. You get a much cleaner cut and it's safer.

Ralphie, could you overnite my soggy points? I don't want them dried out when they get here.

I say the answer is no. The larger the diameter of the bit, the faster the outer edge of the cutter spins. So, the larger bits recommend a slower speed to keep the outer edge spinning at a reasonable speed.

Depends in the diameter.

Bob was the first one past the post today with exactly the point I was looking for...

...A damp point for your point is on the way :-D
