Hi All, I could some input.
I have a Bosch Colt(1hp) on my new Romaxx and my feedrate to RPM ratio seems out of line.
I'm using maple primarily(3/4" thick), .1" depth with each pass, Onsrud solid carbide up cut bit, 2 flute (Onsrud rep recommended).
The problem is that I find I have to run the router at around 30k RPM otherwise the router bogs down and begins to vibrate. The feed rate is limited because of this situation, and can't go much over 35. If I push it the bits get pretty warm and that's not a good thing.
I've tried both conventional and climb cuts.
I see plenty of folks reporting running the same .1" depth @ 10k RPM and at a much faster feedrate. What am I missing? My router is variable from 15k-32k. I'll be using a 2hp Porter Cable in about a week.
I'm using a shop vac and a dust foot which has worked well, so chips are not the issue.
This leads me to believe I'm not using the best bit for my needs, any recommendations or other thoughts?
