    SIP 1/2" 1500W plunge router

    I have this router and find the plunge pressure is too strong for pleasant use. Because of this the tool is not used very often. Has anyone overcome this problem?

    I would suggest a brush cutter with a blade this will be the easiest solution and make short work of even a large area. Perhaps hire one if it will be a one off use. In my opinion bull bars are essential for ease of use.

    Insulated Shipping Container Help

    I would put a dehumidifier in your box working 24 hours a day and reduce the heating temperature to about 12 degC they are cheap to run. Turn the heating up when you are in there working. We run a CNC and SLS printers in a similar way the weather has been very humid recently.
