Ibm looking to use an inexpensive router and table for
an ongoing project. I need to burnish leather using a
rotary burnishing tool. This will look similar to edging
a piece of wood, but instead of removing wood to form
the edge, Ibll be using a turned hardwood piece mounted
on a shaft to then run the leather past the polishing surface.
This will burnish or bslick downb the edge of the thick
(1/4b b 3/8b thick) piece of leather.
Here are my questions:
1. My burnishing tool is mounted on a 3/8b diameter
shank (most router tools are 1/4b or 1/2b). Ibm pretty
sure reducing collars are available.
2. My maximum rotary speed will be in the 1000 to
1100 rpm range. Much slower than a typical router.
Any suggestions? Ibve started trolling Craigslist and
eBay, but if there are some specifics models to look
for, it would be helpful.
