Routers are typically designed to cut softer materials like wood, Delrin, and acrylic BUT how far can we push this Tormach 24R?
While we loved the Datron NEO…it was more machine than we needed for our acrylic fixture plate protectors. In the shop, we primarily cut aluminum and steel, so naturally, we wanted to try cutting those materials on the 24R. Let’s compare aluminum cuts on the Tormach 24R and Tormach 770M using the same speeds and feeds. Next, we’ll see if the 24R can cut steel. Throughout this video, we’ll discuss machine specs, helpful upgrades, and things to be aware of.
