Updating Control Panel

Installing a new control panel, I got from Mike.
Purchased a set of Drill Hog Bits off ebay, to drill the holes.
So far so good. Looks way better than the 12x16x8 I had on it.:D

2.2 Kw Spindle Finally

Just got a 2.2 kw water cooled spindle and vfd for an upgrade. The Porter Cable worked fine for plywood and long curves. We'll see how it goes.
Happy Turkey Day to all tomorrow.

The first time that happened to me, on my other router. I spent a few hours scratching my head. It is not an uncommon problem. Especially, if you use your machine.

Archie, I saw a machine just like yours running at the Blacksmith shop in Pigeon Forge the other day, by the "Old Mill Restaurant". You are right. That thing is loud. Definitely scary.
