Elksniffer, normally you route in a clockwise direction when hand routing. The cutter will turning into the workpiece. To clime cut, you would go in a counterclockwise direction. This is a little more dangerous as the cutter is turning in the same direction you are routing, because of this the router is more difficult to control. There are times when a clime cut is desirable because of the grain direction of the wood. pkennedy
