    Hi new guy here,
    Wondering if anyone here has built a flood table?
    I am routing plastics and the cut edge of very nice when it has a water irrigation on the cutting bit.
    I have seen only a couple of home built tables on the internet. Looking for more ideas.

    Thanks

    I’ve not seen one like that yet. You’d want to use a spindle, the trim router’s air cooling will spray water everywhere.

    Yes I agree it would be a spindle for sure!
    Any suggestions on water cooled spindles?
    Thanks for the input

    Not really. Most water cooled spindles are kind of heavy. A few of us have cut hdpe without issues though. I’ve even cut acrylic with pretty good results.

    The HDPE is quarter-ish inch, the acrylic is sixteenth inch I believe. All done with the dewalt 660.
