the brass t8 nut is 10.1mm outer diameter
steel tube part of plunge router is 14.1mm inner diameter. I was thinking of 3d printing a bushing and using an epoxy to hold it in the tube, but worried it will become loose.
Maybe If I take Dremel tool and score the ID and OD so there are physical grooves.
Anyways these 1/4" bit routers seem to be able to be modified like the European Bosch can be with a little bit of hacking. As long as I can get this T8 nut secure in the tube I will be all set.
plan to run at lowest speed of 16000rpm and see how long brushes last
Can get this or the 2.5 hp harbor freight routers for around $45 in bulk. do people think this would be a decent cheaper alternative to the Ridgid R22002 which costs 3x more?
