I haven’t given up. Truth is, it works fine.
While interesting, I don’t really care how much power it requires etc etc. Just not my thing.
I’ve hogged out inch thick aluminum with a 3/8” TAS, 6mm doc. I’m currently doing full depth (1”) adaptive in red oak, no issues.
The router is not grounded as was my DeWalt. No static problems yet, humidity these past few weeks as low as 5%.
Under heavy load I can hear the router slow down a bit so the power supply may be a little light, we’ll see. If I smoke the cheap ps at some point I’ll report and maybe upgrade to a Mean Well.
The original question in the thread is answered. Thanks to @Vince.Fab.
