Default True Router Speed

Many have ask about router speed and charts, this is one I put up to help others with that job..

Let me say,, Not all routers are the same

The P.C. battery type router below

No Load..../ with a load, used a 1/2" bit for the load in some 3/4" MDF 1/2" deep.

without load 23,454 .... down by -20 % with load.

Sears Craftsman #17543 without load////with load,down by %

Number #1 speed setting 16,124 .....-40%
Number #2 speed " " " 18,506 ....-35%
Number #3 speed " " " 21,620 ....-30%
Number #4 speed " " " 24,526 ....-25%
Number #5 speed " " " 26,729 ....-20%
Number #6 speed " " " 26,880 ....-15%

BJ....yes, I get your drift. Its similiar to the horsepower of trucks. the horsepower at the flywheel compared to the horsepower at the rear wheels via the gear box and diffs.That could be a reduction of 20 plus percent.Same as router speeds? .............AL

Very interesting stuff, BJ.. I don't doubt your test or your findings, but am curious.. How did you apply your load, so it'd be the same in each test?

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Hi Jim

" with a load, used a 1/2" bit for the load in some 3/4" MDF 1/2" deep."

I Used the same bit for all the test speeds on both routers..
