Hey Fellas. I placed my order today for a HD 500. I hope that it doesnt become another fixture in my workshop. I asked earlier if there was a spindle adapter for a Makita router. I really would like to use my router for the expense factor and also, for I like the Makita router. The diameter of the router is 81.52 mm and the clamp that comes with it is 3.5". I can only find 80 mm clamp on line. Can anyone give me any information on this. Thanks, ever so much.
I found a piece of aluminum pipe that was the exact diameter (3.5") of the router clamp on ebay and done just a little lathe work on the inside and cut a 1/2 inch slot in it for compression and it works perfectly. It seems that Makita is a odd size that has been forgotten, at least for now. However they say a Makita works well for this application. I am just now getting into the hobby of CNCs and will need help later on. Thanks.
