Thanks to each of you respondents! Good points made by all - sounds like I may need to go for a high-quality 3.25 Bosch (router motor) with that EDRT. I'm in the early layout processes of designing the fixturing for my new product manufacturing for short runs, and quite frankly; just "doing my homework" for strategic purposes. I plan to manufacture some of the wooden parts in my shop and others will be made by one of my partners on his CNC, still other (metallic) parts will be manufactured in our machine shop - while everything that is "standard issue" will be sourced directly. My third and final partner will handle the assembly and quality control and testing. I've had a super-qualified sales force for 11 years and they will transfer to my new product line when the time is right. I have also recruited a couple of members of the RouterForums for technical advice, website development, videography and miniaturized model-making (for ease of on-site demonstrations). It will be 100% AMERICAN MADE and with our patent-in-hand, we are subject to sell the entirety of the rights and processes to some [unknown] big manufacturer. It will, of course; take several years for this turtle to crawl that far! Trust me - I do this for a living, it is called PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT.
No AGENDA here whatsoever, but I would again like to emphasize how valuable the Router Forums interactions can be! I've acquired several extremely nice friends along the way within my 3+ year duration of membership. For a couple of these people it is a way for them to reach their goals in employment. For many others - I personally have enjoyed doing favors. Favors - do you get it? Friendships mean a lot to me and I am often willing to do free work for my friends. I'm not here trying to build client (paying) relationships - just to help people (including myself) along the way.
I have been blessed beyond what I could have ever expected and if I may help some of you - please let me know. I cannot do everything for everybody, and I certainly will not "chew your food for you", but I am always willing to help when I can find the time.
