    Scorch,

    That's a very illustrative photo - Thanks!

    Gate, sprue, riser, registering system on the sandbox, scorched wood...

    Hmmm... Maybe that's how you got your name?

    I see that you made it to mill wood, but how will it perform milling aluminum?

    I think the mount will do fine with aluminum. It is really stout. I am a little worried about where the aluminum chips are going to go with the router running. There is a lot of airflow coming from the bottom of the router. I have a feeling there is going to be aluminum chips all over the workshop and potentially inside the router.

    Yep aluminium chips go EVERYWHERE, learnt that the fun way.
    And they did eventually get sucked into the router and went *splat*.
    luckily it was only a brief short and i just took it apart and cleaned it all up.
    I ended up hotgluing some material to the air inlet on the router and works perfectly.
