I had to do some digging but I think this is the link.Semipro, how do I get a discount on them through the forum?
I must confess that I haven't used a bit as big as 3", for raising panels I use a vertical raising bit, I reckon it's much safer! Note the tall fence which makes panel raising a breeze.Harry, have you used it for larger bits like 3"? I've read horor stories of people who have had bad vibration problems and have even had the fly apart while using then... It makes me nervous
I've just realised Tom that I forgot to answer your question. The Makita RP2301FC uses the #9 MUSCLECHUCKEven with the discount from the company, the Amazon.com price is slightly lower. However as far as I can tell Amazon.com does not sell any of the accessories such as the other sized collets or the assembly setting rings.
I do not own one so I do not understand what is the purpose of the assembly setting rings. The company site also sells sets of the collets, assembly rings and a wrench.
Harry, I cannot tell from the web site just what comes with the Musclechuck by itself. How many of the accessories do you use, and is the company wrench the one you recommend? Also, which type do you use with your Makita RP2301?
