    Name of the tool in English is a router. Watching you grind steel is nothing short of amazing! A real artist.

    Thanks.

    It has a drill chuck that allows to use bits with 2-8mm shank. And variable speed 2000- 14.000 rpm, that allows to use grinding, filing, sanding bits too.

    It can be used as a router, but its not just a router attachment. More like, shaping & routing platform / attachment?

    This was a Part 1. Kind of making the "base".

    Thanks.

    But, like mentioned. Its actually a die grinder:
    https://tinyurl.com/yynhlery

    These are palm routers, or in Finland "edge routers": https://tinyurl.com/y2te572d

    Part 1 is about turning die grinder to palm router kind of tool.

    Part 2 uses casing made in Part 1 as an connection piece and Chuck guard.
