Is a top speed of 10,000 RPM too slow?
I've been looking at the Shopsmith as a possible solution to my extreme space constraints. The new units have additional tilting capability that allows them to be used in a conventional router table configuration (with the bit coming up from under the table, not over the top). Also, the new power plant is impressive - lots of power, lots of torque. However: top speed is 10,000 rpm. Is that too slow for good cuts when using small bits?
