    Jeff has a good suggestion but I would try a hotter oven, maybe 300 F. That should release any glue and dry the wood. It will also cause the metal to expand a little. When you take it out try to pull...

    Sorry but no experience here.

    You could set up your router sled outdoors.

    You propose to make a router out of a lawn mower? I could come to WNY to see that in operation.

    How about clamping two blocks of wood to the bench with a hole in each. Paint one side then turn by hand. If one block is heavy it won't need a clamp. You can change spindles quickly.

    A tip speed of 100 mph is part of the problem. I slowed my saw with a 1750 rpm motor and a VFD. Sure it cuts slower, sometimes this wastes 2 or 3 seconds in a single cut! That adds up. I normally run...
