Attach the bit into the router. Tighten it first by hand then with a wrench so it is secure. Reinstall the base. Raise the bit so the straight cutting edge is above the board. Move the bit into the wood until they touch. Move the bit along the wood and once you get to the end, pull the bit from the wood and release.
