A router will get hot just running without even cutting wood..... now how hot are we talking? If you burned yourself touching it then something is wrong. If it was hot but like you can keep your hand on it for a minute or so then it might be normal.Dan said:I see there are a bunch of newbies on the forum so one more won't hurt.
I bought a PC router combo 893PK 2 1/4hp. When using it the motor seemed to get hot. Am I cutting too much wood or is there a problem with the router?
