My new CNC machine – Onefinity Woodworker X35 – is on order and requires a router. The Onefinity is designed to work with the Makita RT0701C compact router so I ordered one and it arrived today. It has a 1.25 HP 6.5 amp motor with variable speeds from 9,000 to 30,000 RPM and comes with a 1/4 inch collet. I have a small number of 1/4 inch bits but I will also be getting a 1/8 inch collet so I can use the 1/8 inch shank bits I already have.
I plugged it in and gave it a spin. It seems to work just fine. I’m getting close to being ready for that Onefinity Woodworker to arrive.
