Default Modulated speed router problem.

I am new to table routing. I have a Ryobi ert-1150v router attached to an art-2 ryobi table router and note from articles that appropriate speeds should be used for different bit sizes. Also at some stage I wish to use really large bits e.g. '3 piece kitchen door set' and appreciate that the speed of the router has to be adjusted to well down. The (flimsy!) Ryobi router manuals state with regard to router speed:

(1) That the on/off switch incorporates an electronic speeder with 1-6 grades (grade 6 fastest) and that the electronic speeder can modulate the speed and set the speeder range. In the 'Specification' the No load speed range is 14,000 - 31,5000 revs per min.

(2) That the router switch can be locked to ON by a clamp provided with the router table and will then switch ON/OFF via the switch mounted on the router table.

Note: I have observed that the switch clamp can be adjusted to crudely vary the speed of the bit rotation but at the slowest speeds the speed does not seem constant.

Can I adjust safely using this clamp adjustment and how do I determine what speed corresponds to each of the grades?

WELCOME SEAN: I certainly can't answer that question. If you have the manual it should give you the answer if not just go for it , use a small bit and run it through the speeds. Good luck in your learning experience.

Hi Sean,

The router i found on the internet was the ERT 115VN,

I am note sure if the "N" signifies a variable speed router.

The round yellow switch on the front of the router is probably the VS switch.

Does yours have this? If not yours may not be true variable speed.

Hi Sean, normally the larger the bit the slower the speed. Safety. However over the years I have started to use the vertical bits to form the raised panel, rather then the wide horizontal bits which can be a bit tricky. The upright vertical bit can handle higher speeds and will produce excellent results safer, at a speed of around 4/5 in hardwood. depending on the type of router. As far as the clamp adjustment, I am not familiar with that type of setup. I use a DW618, with no complicated adjustments, jut on/off and separate speed control.
