DEWALT DW625 Router...... Do I smell burning plastic.....
OK I'm trying my best to get these darn chairs done, the tightwire chairs, I've had a lot of set back, but was on track then last week I went to the L shop to help out my wife and my Mother In Law was sick, I worked the register for a few hours a couple of nights in a row and boom I caught a cold, dang it.
Today is the the first day back, I was too foggy to really be working with sharp spinny tools until today, well I'm cutting some of the final mortises on the legs and all of a sudden the router slows to about half speed and I can smell burning plastic
Shut down right away and take a look, it is not hot, that I can feel, the cord is not hot, the outlet is fine I was cutting about 1/4" deep with a 10mm straight bit, I want nice neat cuts so I take it slow and do small steps, the wood is Beech so it is fairly hard but nothing stupid. I bought this router brand new on March 7th 2015 and have only really used it to make the Chinese chairs, not a lot of hours on it.
I desperately need this tool to work right now, or I'm kind of screwed.
If I order it today Amazon can get me a new one by the 16th, but I don't know if I need a new one...?
I ran it again and it seemed fine for about 5 min, then the same thing, slow down and burning plastic smell.
I guess I have to tear it apart and see what is up..... I'm so screwed......
