speed settings on the 1400 router
« on: August 15, 2017, 08:11 PM »
I am using a 2 inch bit to flatten, with a sled, a mahogany tabletop . The mfg says that 18000 is the recommended speed. The festool manual does not address speed as such (no surprise there) just a vague-ish  table. The supplemental manual does not give speed settings either.

Could someone at Festool give me the speeds associated with the various settings? I know the knob makes it infinitely variable but I want to know I am not exceeding the 18K limit.

Thanks,

Peter
