RPM of single-speed router
I have a question. I inherited a single-speed B&D router from the 1980s (barely used, though) and I want to repurpose the motor (new purpose to be determined).
Do those motors use gears to produce 22,000 RPMs? Or is that the RPM of the shaft itself (I call it native speed)? I have not bee able to find that information anywhere.
22,000 strikes me as too fast for anything and I'm not sure how pulleys can help at that speed. Oh, and it not soft-start.
Any input would be appreciated.
