I have a Sears Craftsman fixed base router, about 20 years old, single speed (25,000 rpm), 6.5 amp, and it will accept only 1/4 inch bits. I need to put a 45 degree chamfer, probably only about 1/8 inch wide and 1/8 inch deep, along the 4 foot length of a piece of 3/4 inch thick oak lumber (not plywood). Since I still don’t have a router for my router table, and this old one won’t fit the table, I’d be doing this operation in handheld mode.
My question is, would you expect that this low powered, non-variable speed, 1/4 inch router can do the job, or would I be destroying wood and wasting time?
