Then i suppose, all accessories;
The plunge, tilt and offset bases,
base protectors,
dust extractors
for RT0701C would also fit into RT0700C.

That's my understanding, and switching the base essentially changes one model to the other.

I guess there are just 110 and 220 Volt models of each.

We have links to both in the wiki if someone wants to research this further.

I haven't seen the RT0701C in 230 V yet.

Me neither.

And here is the manual that is dual-labelled for both models: Manual for RT0700C & RT0701C

Okay, I updated the text to reflect that and added a link to the manual.

Anyone else finding the spindle options table unwieldy?

I'm wondering if we shouldn't limit the table to the bare essentials, then have an alpha list below sorted by manufacturer/model where the detailed information for the popular / well-documented choices can go.

Just wanted to confirm for people that the mounts designed for the 701 will definitely work for the 700. I cut a couple out to today for my 700 and the fit is perfect.

I think a simple enhancement to make sure that the dust boot doesnt move around is to
1. enlarge the shaft of the bit a little bigger
2. add a 1/2" PVC adapter to the other side, that will add rigidity.

Im not expert of course :) just a newbie. here is a mockup:

Also, I wonder If im doing something wrong. when I import the SVG you mage into inkscape, and then draw a 65x65mm circle, mine seems to be much bigger than the inner circle in your shape. What am i missing ? (sorry for the newbie question)

The original SVG quite possibly could have been made in Illustrator or similar, where the default DPI is 72, whereas Inkscape uses a default DPI of 90. This will throw things way off.

Trying to learn Inkscape and the whole machining thing while I build my own...

I took a liberty to create a version that incorporates my idea from earlier. based on Targus's design, I redid it in Inkscape, and made a couple of changes
  • 1. bit diameter is now 1.25"
    2. added a cross pipe of 1/2". if 2 pipes are in and tightened, there should not be any way that the boot will touch the bit.
This was a good way to push me into learning how to use Inkscape.
I dont have a CNC yet, and I dont know for sure that anyone will like this idea, but here it is.

Thanks Targus for the documentation and youtube demo's! eventually it was your incorporation of the Makita in the SO2 that made me take the plunge and get into it.
