Reply To: Choice of rotary tools



There are a few reasons I don’t go with that one but the biggest is how far from the axis it is going to need to be. The closer the cutting bit is to the center of the z axis (or where the X and Y cross) the better. Linear force multiplier the further out you go. So I didn’t think you could make use of all that extra power without some serious chattering. It might be rigid enough for it, I can’t wait to see how it works. If we can cram 1.5 HP on here that would be insane. But the Dewalt for $55 has more than enough power for what I’ve tried and it comes with 1/8th and 1/4 collets.

I’m more of a bang for your buck guy.
