Over head plunge routing on a sliding table.
Hi, im new to these forums, hopefully someone can help me. At the moment im making special flat boards approx 600x 150x 45mm with various slots in at various depths. Im using a jig and guide method at the moment running the slots by hand. I would like to do by another method as i have a wrist injury and the endless strain is causing it to get worse.
My idea comes from a few years working on a pillar milling machine, with a precision adjustable table, where the board can be fixed and the table cranked along in both x-y axis and needing to pretty damn accurate. Does a similar machine existing with a router on, obviously a steel miling machine only runs at about 2500rpm max and a router up in the 20000's. Can one been made? Any ideas greatly received. Paul
