The Newest Member of the Shop Family May 16, 2009

Posted by Ruzter in Electronics, Fabrication.

Here is the newest member of the shop family and the solution to the old router’s shaft wobble (among other things)


This router is great because it has constant speed control (router maintains constant speed with varying loads) and comes with a vac attachment that I can easily adapt for use. Most importantly, the router has  cylindrical body that makes mounting much easier. The extra horsepower and both 1/4 and 1/2 inch collets don’t hurt either.

Now to mount it, we will just remove a few extras. This model also has the benefit of a long “neck” where the bit mounts which solves some other mounting issues.



And here is the drawing of the new mounts I will make. Best of all the CNC can make these mounts for itself!
