Custom Harbor freight trim router 1/8 collets

Post by galyion » Sat Jan 03, 2015 11:46 pm

I bought a hf trim router today. Going to be making custom collets for it. Is there any interest in me putting a for sale up.

I've been working in machine shops for 14 years doing programming and setup. So these will not be made in a garage. I'll report back with pics and runout numbers Monday or Tuesday.

I would have been very, very interested before I got my Makita.

I guess put me down for one anyway if you can bring them in at a reasonable price.

Guess l still think that it should have been the spindle on the SO2.

Made one collet today. Runout is little under .005 still have to check spindle to see if it's any better or if that's what it's going to be. I'll keep this post updated.
