    I ran a SPID with a Makita router with no problems. I upgraded to a Porter Cable 7518 and am still trying to get it to work. Are there any special things that need attention. The SPID screen just cycles through the menus. The router runs and stops. I have adjusted the optical sensor. Do I leave the TRIAC in and jump it or should it be removed. I have a CNCROUTERPARTS NEMA 34 electronics cabinet with PMDX 126 board. I initially wanted to run the router with the software but just basic running would b a good start.. Any help appreciated.

    Do you have it wired like the manual shows? How do you have it configured in Mach3?

    like i said, 4 wires (gnd, tach, run, 5v) from s-pid to bob (gnd, 8 to run, 9 to pwm, tach to input 10), i can turn on/off and fully control the speed of the router. In mach3, enable index and assign port and pin, try to stick and unstick active low also. In spindle setup tab, stick use spindle feedback in sync mode. Also tried to put some number in index debounce box. Im not sure if i have to do anything with ess plugin or what.

    What router is considered to be the easiest to install the RPM sensor?

    Well I'm sure everyone has an opinion.

    I found the Porter Cable 690 a good choice for my needs. There was adequate room on the top part of the router. I have a small lathe, so I was able to machine the needed hardware which holds the speed sensor. I silver soldered the two pieces I fabricated together and then drilled and tapped a whole on the router to mount the assembly.

    Also Precise Bits makes collets that fit this router.

    I found the Porter Cable 8902 was fairly easy to modify. I may have also posted the mod process on this forum but I also posted it here: Build Your Tools ? View topic - Super PID
