Thread: Knackered DeWalt Router
I have a DeWalt 625 Router (2000W variable speed). The Collet Nut thread portion of the spindle is shot.
Just wondering if it would make a good motor for a DIY Milling Spindle? Maybe convert (bodge) it to drive a belt?Tim G-C

My only reservation would be the noise. Have you checked I thought you could get a spare spindle for the 625, although not sure as to how you change it!

£77 for a new armature, £230 for a new router... seems reasonable to me...
peter - edited your post as the url you gave was to some dodgy fileshare site....
lmao, tut tut peter!.Me
not sure where the dodgy site came from but the miles site is still showing on my visited sites very strange as I only cut and pasted the site address.
