Joe, I had the same problem, and with run out too. But as soon as I rotated the musclechuck, I did find that sweet spot and have been loving it ever since!! Good catch Mike! I read his post and didn't catch that he was spinning the bit, not the chuck! And was wondering why he couldn't get it right. LOL

I've been working on some projects, more of these window treatment things my daughter had me make for her. But with a little change in design. Will post some pics, later on. But having been using the heck out of the musclechuck in my router table. If not being a pack rat with tools, I'd have thrown away the chuck wrench that the router comes with!!

Hi, guys.

I have been tempted to buy this accessory for my routers so, I will wait for Mike´s video to make a decision.

I think the moderators should merge all 20 of the Musle Chuck threads together ?

Wouldn't that throw them off balance?

So much going on. I have not had time YET to get out there and experiment with the rotation fix. Be patient! I will ... eventually!

I had to swap the musclechuck from one router motor to another tonight. I forgot how long of a process it is to dial the initial alignment in, especially when it is upside down in the CNC (I should have installed it on the bench...... ) I don't think I could have got the alignment 'more wrong' on the initial installation. Run out was around .020" at first, got it down to .002"on the third try. I didn't want to remove the dust collection hood from the machine, so I wasn't able to get the run out of the router armature by itself, so I'm calling it good for now. The router it was previously on had a 0.0015" run out, so I think I am probably in the ball park.

I will admit it takes a good 20 minutes to test the chuck when you install it, but you get every second of that and more back doing bit changes after that!

I've never heard of a MUSCLECHUCK being the cause of vibration, all the cases that I've come across turned out to be from other causes. Are there any members who have a MUSCLECHUCK/s and is unhappy with it?

I have one in both my router table and my CNC and love both of them. One is in a Dewalt 618, and the other a Bosch 1617. I have no problems with either. The Musclechuck makes bit changes quick and easy.
