I've just routed my 4th tele style headstock, and maintained my perfect record of the bit catching on the end grain at the top. This one gave me the shits because I was being especially careful not to do exactly that, and it was the worst it's happened yet (big chunk tore off). I'm after some advice on how to stop this happening. My method is to draw the outline from the template, band saw out the rough shape, disc sand right down to the line, use the table router with 2" (straight) bit with the template on to finish it off. In this case, the cleanup required was the width of the pencil line. I don't have the coin for a spiral cutter just now, but in my mind that would go a long way to solving the problem. Otherwise what else can I do? I'm considering giving up trying to route that bit and just sand it instead. Advice appreciated!
