I decided to make a set of carbide lathe tools. I turned the handles today. While they are only 16 inches long this is the longest I can turn on my little Rikon lathe. I'm very happy with the way they turned out.
My first handle, made from mystery wood, possibly bass wood which is a terrible choice for a handle but it probably won't see much use. I de-rusted, polished and linseed oiled the head. The handle is sanded to 220 and several coats of BLO.

The Router Crafter is used to flute table legs or other round stock, by guiding a router on rails above the stock.
With all the gardener/woodworkers here I thought maybe someone whose Google-fu is strong might point me in the right direction.

This is the 2 1/4 hp with a vac handle. How does this stack up vs Festool's routers.
As far as dust collection is concerned.
Please, no opinions. Experience between the two is appreciated.
