I was considering using my 1617 with metal bushings and the plunge base so I would like to know if other than the swirl cut problem you were happy with the operation? I have only used round nosed cutters for the signs I have made, and the results are pretty good.
Ed, you are right about the flexing problem with the bars, but when using round nosed bits the minor amount of flex doesnt seem to show.
