Introducing the SpinRite Router Motor

Strongsville, OH – Northeast Ohio tool distributor, Woodpeckers®, recently announced their exclusive representation of SpinRite router motors.

 

The SpinRite router motor is built from the ground up to be married to a router lift or a small shop CNC. CNC-grade ER-20 collets, a carefully machined internal taper on the shaft, and a precision collet nut combine to deliver significantly less run-out than most other 3HP class routers. The motor features electronic circuitry with infinite speed control (from 10,000 rpm to 22,000 rpm) and a soft-start feature. At speed you’ll notice quieter operation and minimal vibration.

ER-20 collets have become the standard in the metal-working industry around the world. They typically have 8 segments, compared to the typical router collet with 4. The closing taper is longer, smoother and ground to a much tighter tolerance than router collets. Two collets are included, 1/2″ and 1/4″. Being an industry standard, you can easily find odd-sized and replacement collets if needed.

There are no tabs or pins on the cylindrical body, simplifying installation in lifts and gantries. You also won’t pay for a hand-held base that just sits on your shelf catching dust.

SpinRite router motors carry a one-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. As the exclusive North American distributor for Spin-Rite, Woodpeckers is your point of contact for warranty claims and machine parts and service.

Woodpeckers president Rich Hummel said of the introduction, “With more than 30 years of experience in the router table and lift business, we immediately recognized the logic of a router motor designed specifically for mounting. Low run-out and ER-20 Collets appealed to the machinist in me.”

Woodpeckers has focused on the needs of hobbyist woodworkers since 1988. They began manufacturing the majority of their offerings in 1993, but bringing quality goods from other manufacturers has always been a significant part of the business. The company makes precision layout tools, router tables and lifts, innovative clamping tools, carbide-tipped woodturning tools and a wide variety of helpful shop products. Their facility south of Cleveland houses a vast array of computer-controlled mills and lathes and employs over 150 skilled American workers.

  1. Interesting article. I’m curious about the noise level of this router versus say, a Porter Cable? Good Grief is mine loud!!!

    Thanks,

    Rob

  2. I seem to remember a product exactly like this about 10 years ago that was phased out of production, had a lot of bad reviews with workmanship. Certainly the concept is sound though, I hope this one does better!
