I've just bought a decent Bosch 1300 ACE Router. Having done a bit of practice on scrap wood, (redwood) I get a lot of burring, which looks a right mess and doesn't clean up with sandpaper. I've tried slower, faster, shallower, new bits, with no improvement.

Help.

that could be 1001 things
however typically

type of wood
speed
too deep a cut or cutting off too much in one run
wood not clamped tight enough [vibration whilst cutting]
crap tool
blunt tool
naff baerings not running true
bent shaft.

i'd plumb for it being the wood
try another type

if it still does it

take it back

Excellent, some I hadn't thought of there, especially the vibration one.

Thanks man, I'm off to the shed....
