I am still planning out my project. Today I was trying to figure out what router to get. I will use a gantry system (will soon start posting pictures) and create my own z-axis lift. This is all done. The question I now face is - do I use a router, a CNC spindle or…
A treadmill 100 VDC permanent magnet DC motor (4800rpm, 1.5HP). I have a speed controller for it that lets it run from 110 VAC. Has anyone ever used a treadmill motor?
Alternative I have two old Craftsman router (the ones you lock at the top).
But most likely I will probably purchase something. If I go this route do you have any recommendations - remember I have a z-axis sled and don’t need the Home Depot router feature.
