Just a lurker delurking.
Looking at the Robland x31on the net and had a few queries. Could some of the x31 gurus help me out?
The mortising spindle seems to be mounted onto the same spindle as the TS blade. That would mean a speed of about 5000RPM (max 6000?). Is this enough to mortise cleanly? What sort of mortising bits would one use to get a clean cut at this speed? (Especially since your typical router goes at at least 15000RPM)
Also, looking at pics on the net (of both robland and the inca), the mortising bit seems to be held by a drill chuck. Is this true or is it some sort of a collet? Can chucks take the rigors of mortising (in particular the sideways pressure as the workpiece is moved)?
