Thanks Ryan, I will!
I am using their controller right now, which is a branded version of buildbotics.
Dust collection was another thing I upgraded as I needed something that worked better than my previous shopvac/dust deputy setup. I got a 1-1/2 HP wall-mount dust collector with a 1 micron canister filter. Seems to do a great job even with a long stretch of crappy 4" flex hose sapping it of some of it’s power and it’s quieter than the shopvac. By far the loudest part now is the endmill actually cutting the wood.
I’m still very green with the new machine and haven’t pushed it yet. It’s a new world for me with computer-controlled spindle speeds with exact rpms rather than a number dial. I will say that to start out, the suggested feed rate in the guides here is listed at 8 mm/s (19 in/min) for a 1/8" bit. The suggested starting rates for a larger 1/4" bit on the onefinity are about 4x that at 80 in/min. I’ve used that for plywood and mdf without issue and have been taking small steps faster from there. Forum users report comfortably going up to 160-180 (around 10x the 8mm/sec base feedrate), but it all depends on your router/spindle/DOC and bit of course. I think the fastest I’ve done so far is 120 in/min in plywood with .25" bit and .25" DOC, but it was all buttery smooth and should be able to go faster.
The comparison needs to be on the same bit diameter, since a 1/4" should be set to cut deeper on each pass and will require fewer passes, compounding the total project time savings. I’ll update as I venture into faster speeds, but I don’t consider MDF a very relatable benchmark since it’s basically packed sawdust and tolerates a much more aggressive feedrate and DOC than project woods.
