router, or planer?
I have my router table with a makita router. I also have (had) a small 1/4" no name router, that was bolted to a sled, and I was using to smooth small boards from rough sawn planks.
today the thing just died on me. gave a pathetic little spin of about 200 rpm, and nothing.
took the switch out and everything tested ok, so its definitely the router windings.
So..... Get another router to put in the sled, or time to bite the bullet and get a thicknesser planer.
This router was a cheapo that was actually given to me last year, been in the box for several years before that, so it owes me nothing.
But I didnt really want to put out the money that a planer will cost.
