The router goes at a 3/4" sheet of plywood at a speedy 200 inches per minute at 18,000 RPM with a new 3/8" compression bit. Such a wonderful monster! It cuts completely through the entire sheet in one pass without hesitation. These pieces are for Amorphic Robot Works and their next project. At this point, I still don't know what the parts will do exactly, but there are lots of them!
