CNC Update – Router Mount Adaptor
I picked up a router for my CNC machine at a pawn shop that was slightly too small for the holder, of course. After spending a few bike rides trying to come up with a way to fill a gap of about 1/4”, the solution was rather an easy one.
A piece of schedule 30, 3″ pipe had the right outer diameter, but was slightly too small for the router body. Luckily before Hammer Time came, I cut the pipe lengthwise and it slid over nice and snugly. Naturally the plan didn’t go off without its hitches and had to buy the whole 10 feet of pipe to get the 3-1/2 inches needed. At least the two competing big-box stores are neighbors, because one was dramatically cheaper than the other.
