Yeah, I’m pretty sure if the router is facing up and the bit is spinning counterclockwise, then when you face the router down, the bit is still spinning counterclockwise.

I was feeding the board into the front face… or towards the cutting edge as described above.

After reading the responses, I think my issue was twofold… 1) trying to take too much material at one pass & 2), not using a sacrificial fence, causing too much sideways pressure on the bit.
