Am delighted with the welcome and look forward to sharing info re routing and etc. Right now am a little frustrated in that I haven't yet got my new FT 1700 going yet. Reason is the spindle won't lock which of course does not allow a bit to be properly installed or even removed. Waiting on Freud to send a part that will allow the locking pin to engage with the spindle. If this doesn't work it's going back to the dealer which may prove a bit complicated as it came with the matching table now assembled and ready for work. Hope they can part exchange it or am in doodoo!Welcome to the forum, James.
