Default Putting the MUSCLECHUCK through it's paces

Mention has been made recently on this forum of a revolutionary router chuck called the MUSCLECHUCK. This thread shows how I put it through it's paces. I have posted it in pdf format at the end.

Thanks, Harry

As always, I'm in awe of your work! Templates, guides, and the like... I just don't have
the patience for that precision... that's probably the reason I'll always rely on people like
you with the skills to do such projects.

The mark down the center... artificially created, I'm guessing, and done with stain and painters tape?

Can't wait to see it complete!

P.S. Sorry I jumped the gun

Nonsense! The signs that you make Barb are real precision.

You pushed me over the edge, Harry. I just ordered my Muscle Chuck after thinking about it for a few weeks.

Now that the "secret" is out I reckon that there will soon be a waiting list to obtain one! It's one of those things "what you've never had you never miss" BUT, believe me guys, once you have used a MUSCLECHUCK you will never use a router without one.

Harry I can see that the chuck gives more extension, and more extension is handy so that is what I use my extension arbors for and, that the side bolt unlocks the cutter with a long hex key, you say a quarter turn to lock/unlock so that would be a small amount quicker than two spanners, your work and jigs are the way that I would do it and all that is very neat as is your presentation/pdf, I would have to try this chuck myself to give a proper opinion but I still don't see anything here that the normal chuck would not do. You are correct about the burning at the corners as it is a routering sin to slow down, I have saved your pdf and I will look at that again but I don't see myself buying an extra chuck extension just now as the ones that I do have work quit OK, very nice presentation of your work.
