At present I'm cutting wood / acrylic / ceramic (planning on trying out aluminium and other metals in the near future). Getting pretty sick of how long it takes for my 1/8" Dremel knockoff to face and rough stuff.
So looking at options. Many of the routers (DeWalt, Makita, Kress, etc) available here in the UK are well over £100. But, there are a few 1/2" Silverline plunge routers on Amazon.co.uk which are much cheaper. eg:
- Silverline 264895 Plunge Router 1/2", 1500W - listed weight as 2.9kg
- Silverline Silverstorm 124799 Plunge Router 1/2", 2050W - listed weight as 9kg!
Any idea if one of these would work ok on an S3? I'm aware I'll have to make a special mount for it. That's no problem at all.
Not needing precision work here, more for roughing/facing stuff, + experimenting/learning more about CNC-ing things in general. The '1/2"' bit is what's drawing me, as that seems to open up a lot of options for end mills and various other bits.
