Thanks for the confirmation that PLA won’t be catastrophic, my buddy has already started printing me out some parts!

Doing some more research I’m abandoning the thought of using a router as a spindle entirely, I have yet to pick the spindle but I’m leaning towards a brushless 400-600W chinese spindle with RPM control via MACH3. From my research, routers will produce noise anywhere from 85-100dBa and a spindle will be around 50-60dBa, that’s a huge difference and I don’t want my neighbors hating me

Leaning towards just going with the seamed tube for now, any other comments?
