Thanks for the feedback on this item very interesting. How do you find the quality of construction (light, heavy, accurate, etc) and what about the mpotor? At 1500 wattts (?) or 2HP is it powerful enough? Finally what size of cutter (diameter) will it allow you to retract below the table?
It is neither light nor heavy of about 30 kg. I could put it myself (without problem) on the table. If the weight of it less than 20-25 kg. the vibration shall be, I suggest. At this moment I do the 3 works with them only (boxes i.e. art bird cages made of hard wood) as follows:
- cutting the quarters (like "rabbet lap joint") of depth 5 mm. x height 30 mm.
- cutting the quarters of depth 5 mm. x height 10 mm.
- rounding of perpendicular corners of box pieces (R 2-3 mm.).
So, I need the smooth cuttings without damages and a precise ones (0,2 mm "+" "-"). To do that I run the piece of wood not quickly and not slowly, constantly with a rotation of about 11000 - 15000 turns\minute. I never try (5mm x 30mm) to do by ONE movement only. 3 movements (runnings) are needed.
It is stable and the surface is hard and smooth, except extensions which are not used by me now.
Is is accurate with depth and width (height) adjustments. But for your assurance you should control it if not properly tighten.
The ONE problem is the FENCE adjustment that I could with a head ache!
"At 1500 wattts (?) or 2HP is it powerful enough?" - for my works it is enough. There is speed control (positions 1,2,3,4,5,6). I have been using from 2-5. Good cutters are needed.
In the manual (the only Chinese girls can understand how to use the manual and assemble the router in 1 hour
) it is said that the max diameter of cutter shall be 50 mm. I used 30 mm. max. But for my purposes I could not use the "long foot" cutter of 10mm width (GLOBUS item NO 1007_D:10mm, l:30mm, d:8mm, L:60 mm). as I need the 5mm depth cutting. So I have to shorten the "foot" of the cutter or use another one (I could use my main 30 mm cutter).
