Great 1st video, Bloy, and what a great pendant.

I noticed you have a rapid changer sitting on the table, do you use it much?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the comment~

As to the rapid changer, I used it now and then.  Since my router (makita) has variable speed, I can keep the speed down.  It needed to be played with when locking it in the motor collet, but once finding the sweet spot, it is well balanced. It just sticks out so far and feed rates have to be kept low as it loses its accuracy with too much side loading.     
 More collets are needed for it but the system supplier support kinda dwindled and the prices went high.

I still intend to try my luck at turning collets on my lathe.  I expect a lot of scrap metal after that..  ;D

Hmmm. The rapid changer is good for multiple tool changes... in fact I was going to make one of those tool changer racks that sitt along a side of the router.....just never got too it.

Hey Dave,
 I wanted to add...

The Makita router motor I'm using in my machine has a proprietary thread on its shaft that its collet holder attaches to.  So I was using a 1/2" shafted rapid changer which caused the extreme extension.    I bought another collet holder for the Makita as a pattern to make an adapter to allow the rapid changer to screw on right close to the motor shaft.  its an odd thread... I couldn't get Makita to reveal the thread size, but thought maybe I could trial and error the thread.  At least I knew what it was close to.  I basically shelved that and am looking for a Porter Cable router.   Or better yet, a VFD and 3phase motor/spindle.  Lots of items on a wish list here.   :-\

Hey John, that is really keen !
Nice piece of work.
The MDI would be a handy addition, hope you get it ironed out.
Nice to see a plan coming together.
Again ... Good job !

Thanks, Bloy, I actually have a bunch of the toolholders and 2 of the Rapid changers but I've stopped using them at this point as most of my work is high speed now.

If you were interested, I'd give you a deal on them if you'd like?

Thanks,
Dave
