Hi!
I hope there is someone who can help me with this: I have a ShopMate radial arm saw which, a part for the saw blade, has also two spindles. One at 20k rpm, with written on top "for routing and shaping", and another at 3k rpm for sanding.
The router spindle is a simple 1/2" threaded spindle, so...I was simply wondering whether someone knows what I could use to attach a router collet to that...is there something like a collet adapter that I could screw into the splindle?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Yours
Lorenzo

If i'm reading your post correctly it may be easier just to cut a couple of fingers off now and be done with it..... :lol:

Yes...I actually thought about that :roll:
But...before doing that, I could really use a pin router, and the radial arm saw seems perfect for it! If I remove the blade, the electric motor housing turns so that I can have the 20k rpm spindle vertical above the wood, and...I just need to find a way of attaching to it a chuck to house a router collet!
