I have a Ryobi router my father bought me for Christmas. It uses 1/4
inch bits. Can it be converted to use 1/2 bits? The reason I am asking
is I would like to experiment with raised panel bits in my router table
but I have never been able to find them in 1/4 inch shank size.
For the purpose of swinging a 2" diameter panel-raising bit on a 1.5 hp
router, red oak is a bit on the hard side.
The good news: That burning smell is probably the wood.
The bad news: It is probably also the motor.
